Remember when I said I was posting Mexican food today? Yeah, just in case you couldn’t tell from the title, this isn’t Mexican food. It’s Friday. I’m tired. It’s been a long week filled with those “Aw, crap, I’m a grown-up now” moments (believe me, when I was 18 and told my parents I couldn’t wait to move out, applying for a new sewer tap was not #1 on my list of things I envisioned myself doing). I am highly motivated by sugar, cuteness, and easy food-related crafts and de-motivated by marinating pork loins and cutting up whole pineapples. I’m a promise-breaker, what can I say?

In case you didn’t know, unless I’m struck by magic craft lightning, I glean pretty much all of my crafty ideas from other people. That’s okay as long as I fully acknowledge that fact, right? I saw these little St. Patrick’s Day rainbows here at Maple Memories and decided to make some of my own. My kids thing they’re pretty dang awesome, even if (okay, especially that) they contain about 10 days worth of sugar in one little package.


If you want to make these extra cute, check out some of these rainbow printables that you could cut out and tie onto the bags (some of them may need to be re-sized):

Simple as That
It Is What It Is

The Swell Life

Happy March! Happy spring (I know it’s technically not spring, but March is spring in my book)! Have a great weekend!


  1. Seriously, I can remember the shock (and denial) of finding out pink isn’t even an official color of the rainbow. (See look Daddy, there is pink in that rainbow up there, and no red. That’s why I know I’m right). ROYGBIV really was a devastating fact.

  2. What a great idea. I have two teenage boys, 13 and 16 and even now, they will love this! Thanks for sharing and happy spring!

  3. Silly question…where did you find the twizzlers? I’ve looked all over for them for my daughters rainbow theme birthday!

  4. Oh my goodness! What a trip down memory lane with the sing a rainbow song. I learned that in first grade and colored every one of my rainbow pictures like that. It wasn’t until high school that I surrendered to the roygbiv rules. So great to see I wasn’t alone! 🙂 I still randomly sing that song…its one of those that easily gets stuck in your head!

    1. I’m so glad I’m not the only one who colored my rainbows wrong up until high school. I remember being so disappointed when I found out pink wasn’t even a rainbow color! What a great song though; it’s fun to see that other people know it too!
