St. Patrick's Day Treats

     I am ALL about St. Patrick's Day fun and celebrations, so I wanted to make something special that Liam could bring to his class.  I had purchased a bunch of chocolate gold coins last month just for St. Patrick's Day.  But, what to do with them?  Why not make some cute rainbow pouches out of coffee filters? Perfect!

Here's what you need:

Chocolate gold coins
coffee filters
green ribbon
spray bottle with water in it

How to make it:

First using the markers, color the coffee filter in rainbow order. (ROYGBIV)
Or however you want, I just liked the rainbow look, since it was St. Patrick's Day.

Place the colored coffee filter on a paper plate or a tray.
Spray a little water onto the coffee filter to moisten it.

Place the wet coffee filter on some old newspaper to dry.

When they are dry, place 2 or 3 chocolate gold coins in the middle of the coffee filter.
Pull up the sides and tie a piece of green ribbon around to make a little pouch.

 Here's what they will look like!

Such a cute way to say HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!
