Happy St. Patrick’s Day! We’re celebrating around here with a Leprechaun Lunch, and everything green! Here’s some of the great stuff I used to make the all green Muffin Tin lunch. The cupcake wrappers are from President’s Choice. I was really excited to find green pear/apple sauce, perfect for our theme. I used some cute green pics I picked up a Party Packagers. I also grabbed a few cute St. Patrick’s Day items from the dollar store.
For the Leprehaun Lunch we had broccoli, snow peas, and green grapes. The applesauce is Mott’s pear flavour, and it’s really green. We also had some noodles with butter and cheese, a real favourite around here. I bought a bag of the tri-coloured noodles, and just used green and white today. For a treat I picked up a couple of cupcakes at the bakery, and added in a few pieces of Leprechaun gold chocolate coins. We also tried Lemon/Lime Koolaid for a green drink.
After lunch it was time to read “That’s What Leprechauns Do” by Eve Bunting. It’s a sweet story about the mischief that three Leprechauns get into on the way to dig up their gold and put it at the end of a rainbow.
Hope you and your little Leprechauns are having a happy St. Patrick’s Day!
