Of course because she had already picked out a perfect outfit I couldn't see sending her to school without a sweet accessory!!!
Bianca's Go Green!! and Sweet!! Marshmallow Kabobs!
We scoured our local grocery store for all candies coming in green, although we didn't find a lot of candy dedicated specifically to St. Patrick's Day we did find a bulk candy bin section in the grocery store. I must confess it took almost 20 minutes to sort through 4 0r 5 bins of assorted color gummy candies but we eventually were successful! We didn't even have any run-ins with grocery store employees telling us that we couldn't pick out the colors we liked, but we needed to purchase all colors. Yea!!!
In the end we used alternating candies including (mint milkyways, green gummy bears, green swedish fish (yum!), green chick peeps,green gumdrops and we topped each kabob off with little green gummy hats. I later learned from reading the label that these gummies were appropriately called " Mexican Hats".
We tied ribbons on the bottoms of each skewer, stuck them in a lime green bucket and another holiday bit the leprechaun dust!!!
