We celebrate every year at the local parade, which is always a good time. How are you celebrating? How about this great (and delicious) DIY St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Jar Craft?

It’s a fun project to do with kids too. They can work on colors and fine motor skills while separating the candies. And who doesn’t love an activity where kids are learning too?

What You’ll Need:

What You’ll Do:

Fill the bottom of the mason jar with a handful of chocolate gold coins.

Open the Skittles and separate them into colors. Layer them in the jar in the opposite order of the rainbow (purple, green, yellow, orange, then red).

Fill the remainder of the jar with mini marshmallows.

Close the jar.

This is absolutely perfect to put out on your desk at work, in the common area at your office, or just to give your neighbor as a festive treat. Plus, you can pick up the supplies for a couple bucks and make it tonight.
