This is a fun treat to serve for St. Patrick’s Day or anytime you have your grandchildren over. They will especially enjoy helping. Just follow the directions on the Jello package and drop some Swedish Fish candies in the bottom. After the Jello has set up slightly add other fish to the sides and top.

Don’t throw away your Altoid or other breath mint containers, save them for your grandchildren to create something to hold their mini treasures. Then have a St. Patrick’s Day treasure hunt.
Breath mint holders – any size or shape
Items to decorate the lid – paper, stickers, small animals, glitter, markers
Scissors & glue
1. Trace the lid on a piece of paper and cut-out.
2. Glue on top of the lid to cover the writing.
3. Use your imagination to decorate the lid.
When your grandchildren are finished decorating fill their treasure holder with candy, money or small trinkets. Hide them for the children to find. You can even give them clues to where they can be found.

Whether you’re Irish or not it’s fun to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a parade. You could have a parade in the neighborhood, at a family gathering or with just you and your grandkids. This is an easy and fun hat to make. You just use a white, syrofoam bowl or a regular paper bowl and decorate with markers. You could even cover it with foil and use permenent markers to decorate. Add a ribbon to tie and you’re ready for the parade. Be sure and take pictures to post on your blog. Get directions and more ideas at CRAYOLA
