Lucky Charms Printable
Lucky Charms for St. Patrick’s Day learning creates an opportunity for sweet treats and educational fun. Kids love cereal so that makes it a sure hit. Graphing cereals and candies that can be eaten is just a little more fun than using plastic math manipulatives. I am excited to share a recipe for sweet treats and a free printable to use for teaching a few skills too. There is even a free printable rainbow tag that you can use to spread kindness through the gifting of the sweet treats. Gosh, why not gift a whole box of Lucky Charms too. I always send them to the special kiddos in my life.
The treats are super easy and fun to make.
- 1 Box Lucky Charms Cereal
- 1 Stick Unsalted Butter
- 16 oz Mini Marshmallows
- Straws or popsicle sticks
- Waxed Paper
- Green Melting Vanilla Wafers
- Melt butter and marshmallows in a large glass bowl in the microwave and stir.
- Add cereal. (Keep a few charms out for the last step.)
- Form pops on waxed paper and insert straws.
- Chill until cool then drizzle melted vanilla over the top. Stick extra charms on.
Making them is fun for kids. To make the process crazy fun (and keep the mixture for sticking to hands), coat hands in butter before forming the pops.
They are adorable.
If you have extra mix, you can spread it onto a greased cookie sheet and make bars.
St. Patrick’s Day Printable Treat Tags
To create the tags, I used this FREE printable that you can download and use too.
You can get the printable HERE on the blog and best news, it free!
It works great and is sturdy when mounted on to card stock.
You can use the tags on individual packages or stacks of treats to give to students, friends or family. They would be awesome for a bake sale too.
Lucky Charms Graph Printable
If you are sharing these treats as a part of an educational gathering, you might love this printable. It is great for sorting and graphing the charms.
You can grab the whole packet of fun printables and get started in prepping a lot of fun learning for your kids at home or the students in your classroom.
Lucky Charms Party Decoration
If you are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and want to make a darling decorative garland, here you go. You can grab the free printable pattern and all of the directions. This is a great project for kiddos too. It can be done with felt or with construction paper.
The printable with the charms could also be used for sorting the marshmallows that come in the box of cereal.
Ways to Use Free Printables
You might have seen this list from me before but I think it is worth sharing over and over. Sometimes the people in the back need to hear things a few times, right? There are so many great ways to use free printables. Here are some of my favorites.
- Print them and mail in an envelope with a stamp. Snail mail rocks.
- Batch some up to make an activity book. This is great for a road trip!
- Print and use at a place setting on the table to create a conversation starter.
- Add them to goody bags. By the way, goody bags are not just for birthday parties.
- Package them up with your favorite markers and crayons to give as a gift.
- Drop a few off at the local coffee shop with fun pencils to spread some happy.
- Cut them up to make cards, gift wrap and decorations.
