Our pot of gold!

It is ALMOST St. Patty's Day, so I wanted to share with you two more things the little peanut and I did to celebrate!  I had been searching around Pinterest for ideas and pinned some of what I liked here.  I really LOVE Pinterest!  It gets my creative juices flowing:)

The first thing we did was make a snack!  We had gone grocery shopping and bought a ton of fruit - most of which was on sale this week which made me even happier:)

We created a fruit rainbow.  I just love how this turned out!!  

I made her a smaller plate and she ate it all before I could get a picture!  As she was eating, she would yell out the color before she gobbled it down!  So cute!  

I put the leftovers into a plastic container in the fridge so that we can make another rainbow this week!

The second thing we made was a pot of gold!  

Amy from One Artsy Mama had made this last year with her son.  I recalled the post when I was in the dollar store about a month ago and came across gold coins.  The only thing we did a little different was add a cloud made of cotton balls and instead of painting the pot black (I didn't have black paint in the house) we used Mod Podge and black tissue paper.  Worked like a charm;)

In case you missed it, Amy is also giving away one of our crayon rolls here.  Head over, check it out and enter!!
