Lucky Charms Jell-O Snack: Easy St. Patrick’s Day Treat for Kids

Like most kids, my little ones are always begging for a tasty snack to satisfy their sweet tooth in the afternoon. While I don't like to give in to their every whim and craving, I do let them indulge in a tasty treat for special occasions like St. Patty's day. Last year they devoured my Shamrock Pretzel Pops - which were a HUGE hit! So this holiday, I figure I can continue the trend with a super easy green Jell-O treat. Because I'm a busy mom (and not to mention 8 and half months pregnant) fast and easy snacks are a top choice! I decided I would simply dress up a Jell-O cup with one … [Read more...]

DIY Rainbow Necklace for St. Patrick’s Day

If your child loves necklaces, this DIY rainbow necklace made from dyed pasta is sure to please. It's a great St. Patrick's Day craft for exploring colors and fine-motor skills with little ones. Last St. Patrick's Day, my toddler wasn't so into crafting, so we settled for an edible sensory bin made from JELLO. It was a great activity for sensory stimulation that was a little messier than expected. I decided that a pasta necklace was in order, because he seemed to be fascinated (i.e. ready to  yank off) every piece of jewelry I would occasionally wear. Thought it would be fun for him … [Read more...]

St. Patrick’s Day Jello Pot of Gold Sensory Activity

I've been searching the web for a fun and age-appropriate activity my almost 2 year-old toddler can partake in, especially as St. Patrick's Day draws nearer.  Although there are so many cute and crafty activities out there for kids, many of them require a bit more skill that comes with age. That's why I was so happy to find some inspiration in a St. Patrick's Day sensory activity that didn't involve glue, scissors or paints...just Jello and some creativity!  I thought jello would be the perfect substance to work with considering it was edible and easy to clean up.  I decided to put my own … [Read more...]
