Make a design on a coffee filter with markers. We made some rainbow and some green.
Mist the coffee filters lightly with water and allow to dry.
Place a few chocolate coins in the center of the decorated coffee filter.
Bundle the sides and tie with a green ribbon.
Don't forget to save some for your little helpers to enjoy with one of these St. Patrick's Day books:
The Night Before St. Patrick's Day Natasha Wing puts an Irish twist on a Christmas classic. It's the night before St. Patrick's Day, and Tim and Maureen are wide awake setting traps to catch a leprechaun! When they wake the next morning to the sound of their dad playing the bagpipes and the smell of their mom cooking green eggs, they're shocked to find that they've actually caught a leprechaun. But will they be able to find his pot of gold?
Jack and the LeprechaunIt's St. Patrick's Day, and Jack Mouse is visiting his cousin Sean in Ireland. Sean tells Jack about the myth of leprechauns, and Jack is determined to catch one for himself! Children will delight in learning about Irish folk tales and traditions and the customs of St. Patrick's Day.
That's What Leprechauns DoWhat do leprechauns do? They bury a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, of course. But as Mrs. Bally Bunion’s ox, Miss Maude Murphy’s hen, and Old Jamie soon find out, they can’t resist having a little fun along the way. For, besides burying pots of gold, mischief is what leprechauns do!
