Every mom wants to create lasting memories with their children through fun family traditions. My favorite busy mom mantra is that simple is always better. Holiday celebrations included. One of my family’s favorite traditions is to make snack mix for each holiday. Today I am sharing quick and easy St. Patrick’s Day snack mix recipes.
Easy St. Patrick’s Day Snacks to Make with Kids
As moms, when we realize another holiday is right around the corner we all do the same thing: Pinterest.
We search for hours for the perfect project. In our minds we imagine a fun-filled afternoon of crafting and laughter that results in a picture perfect creation.
- You spend a bunch of money on the supplies.
- There is a crazy amount a mess-making and bickering between siblings.
- And finally the end result looks nothing like the stupid picture.
All of that changed once I realized that making snack mix is the perfect kid-friendly activity for celebrating any holiday.
It’s quick, creative and tons to fun to make and eat!
I have collected a variety of the best recipes I could find to meet your St. Patrick’s Day snacking goals.
