To celebrate St. Patrick's Day and break up the monotony of our homeschool days, the kids and I decided to throw together a Rainbow Sprinkles Party. With the most basic of supplies we were able to create a fun little soiree. Here's what we did and how we did it, so you can too!
Our first bit of party prep involved decorating cups and creating food picks with flags. To do this all you need is one roll of rainbow polka dot washi tape and a pair of scissors.
These first two items really don't require instructions, we simply wrapped plain white cups with strips of the tape. For the flags we folded the tape over the end of the food pick and then trimmed it.
The flags were perfect for dipping marshmallows!
Need a party activity for kids who are too cool for party activities?
Set up a marshmallow dipping bar! It was lots of fun. But, remember marshmallows WILL melt if you hold them in the melted chocolate for too long - just as my son.
All you need is almond bark (your choice of flavor) and sprinkles! As you may have guessed I'm partial to the rainbow variety.
No need to make a fancy punch; there are more than enough shades of Kool-Aid to color coordinate with your party's theme.
For more colorful decorations, I broke out our rainbow table toppers, a rainbow boa (great to have on hand for all kids of imaginative play), green striped paper straws, and one of my many Erin-Go-Bragh decorations.
Normally, I'd have more food but since it was just the kids and I, we went light. I love making Buffalo Chicken Dip and Baked Crab Rangoons.
