A great craft you can make with your kids are these Froot Loops Rainbow Snacks.  You only need 3 things!  Froot Loops, fuzzy pipe cleaners, and donettes.  It is kid approved, helps with hand eye coordination, and a super yummy sweet treat to eat!

All you have to do is string the Froot Loops on your fuzzy pipe cleaner (you need about 30 Froot Loops) and shape it into a half circle and put each end into a donette like a puffy cloud.  Just don't eat the pipe cleaner!

Today we made rainbow Mickey Mouse heads. All you need is 2 pieces of paper, a pencil, markers, cotton balls, glue, scissors, and bowls to trace your Mickey head. I used a 5 inch bowl for the ears and an 8 inch bowl for the head. Trace the paper, color a rainbow pattern, add the ears, glue, and cotton balls and you have a rainbow Mickey for St. Patrick's Day!
