I love creating fun experiences for my children. We started this tradition about 3 years ago and my kids look forward to it every St. Patrick’s Day. For “Rainbow Kabobs” you will need some fake gold coins from the dollar store (I couldn’t find coins, so I bought “gold metal necklaces” and pulled the ribbons off of them), fruit in the colors of the rainbow, mini marshmallows, gold wrapped candy (rolos), and some kabob sticks. The first year we did this was the most fun. I hid the rainbow of fruit and treats from my kids and sent them outside on a “treasure hunt.” I told them to find all the gold coins that were hidden in the backyard. Then I asked them where the pot of gold is usually found…at the end of the rainbow of course! I had them trade in their “pot of gold” and close their eyes. Then I brought out their rainbow of yummy goodness as well as the marshmallow “cloud” and the edible “pot of gold.” They absolutely loved making and eating these colorful kabobs! Now, each year, they look forward to this simple tradition even though it is no longer a surprise.
