Try vanilla pudding with a drop or 2 of leprechaun juice (green food coloring) dropped on top. Let kids mix it in with a spoon. Add “gold” or “rainbow” colored sprinkles. Enjoy.
Make green jello jigglers and cut out with shamrock cookie cutter. Children can do this or you can do ahead for very young ones.
Give each child a piece of white bread. Let the children help you mix green food coloring into cream cheese. Have the children spread the cream cheese on their bread. Give them a shamrock cookie cutter and let them press a shamrock out of the bread. Yummy!!!
Green Bread With Golden Butter
Let the children help you make your favorite yeast-bread recipe but………. add lots of green food coloring to the water you use. Give each child some dough to knead. Bake the children’s dough according to your recipe.
While the bread is baking, make golden butter. Pour a pint of cream into a jar. Add yellow food coloring then shake, shake, shake!!!! Enjoy your homemade butter on your green bread!
Last year my class had green pudding pie for snack and chanted……
Leprechaun pie, Leprechaun pie,
If I don’t get some I think I’m gonna die.
Give away my pot of gold,
Give away the sky,
But don’t give away
My Leprechaun Pie!!!!
Fill a clear plastic cup with Sprite. Add a spoonful of Lime sherbet for a great St. Patrick’s Day Drink.
We took pistachio pudding dry and put it in a clear plastic container on the table when the children arrived. Attached to the container was a note from a leprechan. It stated that we should add two cups of milk and shake and a magic snack you should have. The powder is white, but as you add the milk it turns green. Have it for snack right away. I use the instant pudding and the large box.
I make shamrock shape cookies. Then I buy vanilla frosting and add a few drops of green food color. The children then frost the cookies. Sometimes we add faces to our cookies with the different colored gels.
Eat green eggs and ham and then read the story green eggs and ham. To make green eggs, just add a little bit of food coloring to them before you scramble. To make “green ham” soak your ham overnight in water with LOTS of green food coloring.
