It started when I spied these plates at Michael's a few weeks ago....Valentine's Day stuff was on clearance, and that's when the wheels started turning...since both Easter and April Fool's is during our Spring Break, we had to have a 'Kiss Me, I'm Irish!' St. Paddy's Day playdate. I could get some sweet deals on anything 'kissy'! Plus, I have this great rainbow material that I knew would make a perfect tablecloth.
Remember my post on rainbow pasta and pom-poms? Here's what we did...
We made rainbow clings! The kids had so much fun, and everyone really focused on making them very pretty. In fact, even those who are notorious for not doing crafts were completely engrossed.
Oh yes, rainbow kabobs! I always try to somehow balance out the sugar rush.
I got a bargain deal for the lip cookie cutter and candy mold. I couldn't wait to make the cookies and the candy lip cupcake toppers. Some of the kids couldn't believe the toppers were edible and thought they were plastic, until they bit into them!
Another Valentine's Day score...gummy lips and green M&Ms along with extra cookies went home with our friends! I made the stickers from both TomKat Studios and Cupcake Wishes & Birthday Dreams downloads. Thanks to all our friends who came and the poor moms who had to take home very sugared up kids!
