(craft recipe) shamrock rice cereal treats

I crafted up these shamrock rice cereal treats on a stick with my 3 year old to help celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. This child is all about holidays, like his mama. He’s already asking what kind of party we’ll be having for St. Patrick’s Day. I think I’ve created a party animal. While we won’t be celebrating with a big party, I’m going to plan a day full of green fun for him. Greek pancakes or eggs for breakfast, dressing in green clothing, green play dough at playtime and of course these yummy green treats. How do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?


Rice Krispies Cereal



Green Food Coloring

Cooking Spray

3 Leaf Clover Cookie Cutter

Paper Straws


Make rice cereal treats according to the instructions on the cereal box. While you are melting the marshmallows, mix in 15-20 drops of green food coloring. Press mixture, 1/2 inch deep, in a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Spray the 3 leaf clover cookie cutter with cooking spray and cut out rice cereal dinosaurs. Stick a paper straw in the clover, allow to semi-harden and enjoy!
