    Love this idea! Glitter is always fun with kids… although maybe not the cleaning up part! I don’t like food coloring, so this is a neat way to do somehting for St Patricks day without dying food green!

    This is an awesome idea! Another idea we used was repurposing hearts from Valentine’s Day and trace them4 times to make a shamrock. Ok, it wasn’t my idea, but my wife’s…
