Quick & Easy St. Patrick's Day Idea

St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner and to be honest, I don't do a whole lot for the holiday, but, I had an idea.  I thought it would be cute, so I did it!
I came across these little plastic tubes that had been languishing in a drawer for several years.  After picking up some Skittles, the project was underway...
I started by sorting the Skittles by color.  It brought back fun memories of my teaching days.  Does anyone else remember sorting activities?
After sorting, I added them to the tubes to form a rainbow of colors.  Sorry, forgot that pic!
I made a couple of tags from scrapbook paper and stamps.
They were attached to the tubes with Baker's Twine and the project was complete!
I did make a change to one of the tubes - A space was left at the top and a few marshmallows were added to act as clouds.  Here's a side view to see them:
That's my quick and easy St. Patrick's Day idea.  

Before you say, "That's cute, Ann, but I don't have those plastic tubes", I have the solution.  You probably have an empty jar.  The ones that basil pesto come in would be perfect.  If you don't have one of those, buy a big bag of Skittles and use a spaghetti sauce or marinara jar.  
See?  I'm a problem-solver!

What do you do for St. Patrick's Day?

  1. Cute! Love that bright green color.

  2. Big bag, big jar.....now you're speaking this house's language!

  3. Very cute but don't shamrocks only have three petals??

    1. Yes, shamrocks do have 3 leaves, but this is a 4-leaf clover. The 4th leaf brings good luck!

  4. That's a great idea! And, yes, I remember doing lots of sorting activities with students when I was teaching. It was lots of fun. I don't do a lot for St. Patrick's day, either, but your ideas are very inspiring.

    1. Thank you, Debbie, I'm glad you like it. So glad you stopped by!

  5. Such an amazing idea!
    You're welcome to join me in a cuppa at Tea With Jennifer,

  6. This is so cute. I don't do anything for St. Patrick's Day but I DO have two nieces and a nephew and it's always fun to do something holiday related with them. I think they'd love these.


    1. Thank you so much! I hope you'll make them for your nieces and nephew.
