With St. Patrick’s Day just a few days away, we’re sharing 5 fun and easy St. Patrick’s Day recipes you can make at home with your kids. It’s important to disconnect for a bit and have a nice time with our families. These are bringing all the color and fun we need right now!

Lucky Charms Rainbow Cake

I made this last year, and it was a big hit! This cake requires nothing fancy. You can make your favorite box cake and packaged frosting (or make it from scratch if you’re handy in the kitchen) and then create a rainbow using the marshmallows in Lucky Charms. Your little ones will enjoy sifting through the cereal to sort the marshmallows. Depending on their age, it’s a great time to practice counting or colors with them.
