Lunch for Leprechauns

This is the same idea as my 'Lunch Box Love', but different holiday!
My daughter gets the goods in this lunch box...I am sticking to Spider Man for my son!
You have to have some 'gold' at the end of the rainbow!
Instead of O'Malley, I wrote in O'Mason for my son and McAshlyn instead of McDowell!  So very Irish!
The little green container holds some ranch dressing for the cucumbers and celery.  I added a few drops of green food coloring.
My youngest daughter enjoyed this little lunch today.
A shamrock shaped peanut butter sandwich, some green ranch, cucumbers, celery, sour cream and onion chips, a sprite, and activia yogurt (the container is green!) plus the 'gold' chocolates make this lunch perfect for my little leprechauns (mischievous little elves!)

Other ideas?  Throw in some green grapes or a green apple...maybe make a corned beef sandwich instead!  Oh, and be sure to have some 'Lucky Charms' for breakfast!

I don't have one thing to decorate my house with for St. Patrick's Day...not really sure why, because I usually go all out for the holidays!  However, I always have fun making any day special for my kids.  I will be gone this St. Pat's Day to see my sister in Memphis! Yaaaahoooo!! I am so excited to see her!  I will pack this little lunch for my kids with a note on the true meaning of St. Patrick's Day and a note telling them how much I will miss them!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all of you!

Since it is typically a party day, I will link to these great parties!

Lunch box: Hobby Lobby; stickers: Target; green fork and spoon: Pottery Barn for Kids; glitter shamrocks: Micheal's; 'Gold' Coin chocolates: World Market (also in the dollar bin at Target); green and white check fabric: scrap bin at Hancock Fabrics
