For every holiday our kids' schools have fun class parties where kids are encouraged to bring treats to share. However, the teachers ask that the treats be healthy. That's very admirable, but where's the fun in that? So with St. Patrick's Day just around the corner, we decided to skip making a treat and instead make something fun (though non-edible) for the kids to share with their classmates: Leprechaun Gold! Simple, fun, and in the words of five-year-old Jack, "So Beautiful!!"
What You Need:
- Smooth rocks
- Gold paint (spray paint would be the easiest, though we used acrylic paint that we had on hand)
Be sure to get your "Leprechaun-In-Training" to join in the fun!
When ours were completely painted and dried, we painted on a tiny green four-leaf clover to each one.
Could a project be any simpler? And since we used materials we already had on hand, it was free! Doesn't get any better than that!
And we're sure the kids' classmates will enjoy their lucky Leprechaun Gold...although Jack is a little worried that leprechauns might try and steal it!
