My husband is of Irish/Welsh/possibly Scottish decent, our last name thought to be very Irish but now I am finding out it may be more Scottish. Anyhow, in the spirit of all things Irish, here is a St. Patrick’s Day Craft for your mason jars. If you happen to have green mason jars or mason jar lids like this:
all the better.
Leprechaun Chowder found here.
Put one package of Pistachio Pudding Mix in a mason jar with a label like this only change 1/4 cup of milk to 2 cups of milk since we are using the whole pudding mix package:
Another fun thing to do around St. Patrick’s Day is to put white carnation flower into a mason jar with water tinted green from green food coloring. The flower will soak up the green water turning its petals a beautiful shade of green. Again if you have a green mason jar like this one:
all the better. You can use this opportunity to talk about botany and study how and why the petals turn colors with your children for a great impromptu science lesson!
Happy Early St. Patrick’s Day!
