St. Patty's Lunch Ideas!

I know St. Patrick's Day is on Saturday, but why not add a St. Patrick's Day treat to your child's lunch on Thursday or Friday? These are EASY, really EASY. I'm sure that is obvious from the picture. But, the fact that they are easy doesn't mean my kids won't think they are REALLY fun when they find them in their lunch over the next couple of days! Easy, Cute, Fun...isn't that the best kind of treat???

So, to make these, simply melt green candy melts (you can get them at craft stores, or at Walmart, probably). To melt them, put them in a bowl (you'll want at least a cup of them, if not a bit more). Melt them in the microwave for 15 seconds at a time. Then stir. Put back in for another 15 seconds. Stir. Keep doing this until they are all fully melted. Then of course dip your graham crackers, Oreos, or any other type of cookie, cracker you want green, half-way in and sprinkle with green sprinkles. Let cool on wax paper. Store in the refrigerator in a sealed baggie until ready to eat.
