St. Patrick's Day Treat

I got a note from my son's teacher on Monday letting us know that his class was going to celebrate St. Patrick's Day on Friday.  It also stated that he could bring a treat for his friends.  So what does any good Mommy do?  Go on Pinterest of course. Here is the treat that I ended up making for Colton's classmates.


I found the perfect idea here.  I went to the linked blog to find the directions and to see if the cute tag was available.  Unfortunately, the author stated that the tag she had made was lost due to a computer crash. So, as a clip art hoarder lover, I knew I had just the right piece of clip art waiting on my hard drive.   So, I quickly whipped up the tags and got to work on the treats.

Here are all of the items I needed to make these super cute treats.


I bought the Rolos, marshmallows, and fruit slices at Wal-Mart and the pretzel bags and ribbon at Michaels  {with the teacher discount - love it!}.  First, I put in four Rolos at the bottom of the bag.  Then, a handful of marshmallows went in.  Finally, I added the fruit slices.  I got a tad nervous about the fruit slices. You see, I only had to make 7 for his Autism class, and just bought the third bag as insurance.  Good thing too since there were exactly 7, yes 7, yellows in three bags.  So after the mini crisis was averted, I tied off each bag with a twist tie and then added the tag with ribbon.


Colton was so excited this morning when he saw them on the counter!  I really hope that his classmates enjoy them too!

If you would like a copy of the tags, click here.  There are two versions of the tags.  One version is like the one that I made for my son's classmates, and the other version says "I'm lucky to have you in my class."
