Hello, Sunshine! I have a confession to make: I’m not a crafty person. I have a million ideas of things to create, but it seems like the best time for me to focus on crafts is around the holidays. St. Patrick’s Day is almost here and my kids made cute Over The Fruit Loop Rainbows with Marshmallow Golden Shamrock Stamps. It’s a quick and relatively mess-free craft.
Items You’ll Need
- Fruit Loops
- Canvas Boards
- Green Paint
- Gold Glitter
- Big Marshmallows
- Cotton Balls
Over the Fruit Loop Rainbow
I usually don’t buy cereal for the kids because of the amount of sugar in it. When JD takes the kids to the store, they always come back with it. They buy a lot of BOGO products, and cereal is almost always BOGO. We had Fruit Loops that were getting stale and I decided that they’d be the perfect pieces for a colorful rainbow.
To make the Over The Fruit Loop Rainbows, draw six rainbow arches and glue the fruit loops in whatever pattern the kids decide on.
Once all of the Fruit Loops are glued, gently pull apart two cotton balls on each side of the rainbow as clouds and glue them. Viola! Your very own Over the Fruit Loop Rainbow!
Marshmallow Golden Shamrock Stamps
My kids love marshmallows. My husband swears they’re good for sore throats, but I’m not sure I believe him. Marshmallows make great stamps for kid’s crafts. They absorb paint easily and don’t splatter when you push down on them.
It’s super easy to make marshmallow golden shamrock stamps. Push two large marshmallows that have been dipped in green paint next to one another, then add another stamp centered over the top two. We then pulled a little stem down by lightly pushing on the side of one of the marshmallow stamps. We had gold glitter left over from Christmas that we dusted over our marshmallow shamrock stamps.

Wishing you a happy and fun-filled St. Patrick’s Day!
