In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, these Lucky Charms Treat Bags are perfect for classmates to enjoy. This is such a simple project, so making a bunch for a whole class won’t take too long, especially if you get the kiddos in on the fun. I’m always a fan of free child labor when it comes to crafts! If you enjoy using your Cricut machine, you could also make tons in a short amount of time. I also love that the materials are so easy to find. Even if you can’t find St. Patrick’s Day scrapbook paper, you could easily just use a different shade of green cardstock instead. As for the Lucky Charms, I used regular, but in the month leading up to St. Patrick’s Day, they usually have specialty boxes that could be fun to use.
- 1 Cup Lucky Charms Cereal
- 1 Ziploc Snack-sized Bag
- 1, 4-inch by 6.5-inch St. Patrick’s Day Paper or Green Cardstock
- 1, 8.5-inch by 11-inch sheet Lighter Shade of Green Cardstock
- Scissors or Paper Trimmer
- Double Sided Tape
- Printable Saying
Step 1: Fill the Ziplocs with 1/2 cup of Lucky Charms.
Step 2: Cut out a 4-inch by 6.5-inch rectangle with the St. Patrick’s Day paper or darker cardstock.
TIP: If you are using 12 X 12 paper, you can get 5 pieces out of one sheet.
Step 3: Fold the paper evenly in half (hotdog) and position it over the top of the sealed baggie and staple twice.
Step 4: Print out the “I’m Feeling Lucky to Have You in My Class” from the printable below (click for a PDF) on the 8.5 X 11-inch lighter green cardstock.
Step 5: Cut out one saying along the dotted lines with scissors or a paper trimmer.
Step 7: Use the double sided tape to stick the saying to the stapled paper on the open staple side.
That’s it! These Lucky Charms Treat Bags are pretty simple and cost effective for a little classroom treat. You can also make one or some for your teacher(s) with the printable below. For this one, the teacher got the special chocolate Lucky Charms with all shamrocks!

Great idea! And, I know the kids loved it 🙂
So cute! i should’ve done this for my daughter’s class! Well, i’m pinning it now so i’ll have it for next year! Thx for putting in the measurements for your labels–saves time! (nice how-to). #SCBH2015
I’m so glad you liked it! They were a big hit for my son’s class. If you wanted to do a treat for Easter you could do Whopper Eggs and say “You’re a Whopper of a Classmate!”
