Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

My granddaughter and I created these yummy, and easy,
Leprechaun Hats in honor of
St. Patrick’s Day. 

St. Patrick’s Day is almost upon us! Don’t you love an excuse to celebrate a holiday?
I am blessed to spend one morning each week with my pre-school aged granddaughter, and this past week we enjoyed making a leprechaun craft and a snack. :o)

The inspiration for this craft came from here.

Ingredients

Small-sized graham cracker chocolate cookies
(I used Keebler’s Deluxe Grahams)

Chocolate/Fudge Sticks
(I used Keebler’s Fudge Sticks-originals)

Creamy peanut butter

Green plain m & m’s

Directions

On one narrow side of a fudge stick, spread peanut butter.

Press the peanut-buttered fudge stick against the front of a chocolate graham cookie, placing the graham long side down. (See photo above.)

Attach three green m & m’s to front of the”hat” with peanut butter in a shamrock design, making sure that the plain side of the m & m faces outwards. (Again, see photo above.)

Around the House

My entryway table sports the majority of my St. Patrick’s Day decorations, with a bit of green sprinkled here and there throughout the house.

I made this LUCK decoration several years ago.
You can find my “how to” directions, here.

The Quiet Man magnet, tucked inside the letter C,
is a reminder of one of my favorite films, and a souvenir from a
2013 trip to Ireland.

This Ireland tea towel makes me smile, and is another souvenir from Ireland.

A commemorative plaque from near the “Castletown” railroad.

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
