Rainbows and St. Patrick’s Day. I don’t know – they just seem to go together. Although I was never a rainbow fan as a kid, except maybe with Rainbow Brite for a few months, today I love the bright and bold colors this combination brings to a celebration or children’s space. It’s wonderful that such a fun holiday gives us an excuse to bring out lots of rainbows.
Whether you’re Irish or not, St. Patrick’s Day can be a lot of fun for kids. From imagining little leprechauns dancing around to creating rainbow inspired art, it’s just another reason to celebrate with the family.
These St, Patrick’s Day rainbow candy cones and free printable rainbow tags are sure to bring a smile to kids and adults alike. They are inspired by a pot of gold at the bottom, a rainbow of Skittles and some mini marshmallow clouds to top it off. Create them as a family, drop them off at a neighbor’s house or thank a teacher, tasting a rainbow definitely can become a St. Patrick’s Day tradition.
You Will Need:
Large Bag of Skittles – divided into color groups
Gold Wrapped Candy – for example Rolos or mini peanut butter cups
Peapod Green Baker’s Twine
Cello Cone Bags
Glue dots, glue stick or other adhesive
1. Put one or two pieces of gold wrapped candy in the bottom of the cello bag cone.
2. Layer your Skittles rainbow on top using red, orange, yellow, green and purple Skittles.
3. Top off your cone with the mini marshmallow clouds.
4. Tie the top of the cone with a piece of green baker’s twine. (You can use any color you have. We just found green was more festive for St. Patrick’s Day.)
5. Print out our St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Treat Bag Flags. Cut out a tag and attach to the top of your candy cone using a Glue Dot, glue stick or other adhesive.
Hope you enjoy your rainbow treats this St. Patrick’s Day!
An Update… We’ve realized that there is a spelling error in the treat tags pictured. We have fixed this mistake in the printable file, so it’s ready for your use.
