St. Patrick's Day Treasure Hunt
How we did it:
- whole walnuts
- gold paint
- hot glue gun
We first cracked our walnuts, being very careful to keep our half-shells intact. The kids helped by eating the walnuts! After we opened them all we painted the shells gold with acrylic paint. Once dry, I sent the kids away while I filled the shells with goodies and sealed them back up with a few dots of hot glue.
Once the walnuts were full of treats and the glue was set I scattered them around the yard and called the kids out for a very fun St. Patrick's Day hunt! This has become a new tradition that my children look forward to each year.
