This was my daughter’s idea. She loved the Valentine’s Day Parfaits we made a couple of years ago.
So when we had some leftover vanilla cupcakes, she requested we make parfaits for St. Patrick’s Day!
My kids’ favorite part of making seasonal parfaits is decorating their clear tumbler with foam/felt shapes or stickers. I had a little trouble finding them so close to the 17th, but eventually found some at JoAnn’s. These things were on clearance for 25 cents and totally worth the investment!
Below is the list of what we threw together. If I was doing these in kids’ classrooms, I would probably dye my cake batter too! With a little green food coloring, you can almost choose anything to layer in your festive cup.
I was thinking that I wanted one with brownies, mint chip and green cool whip. But when working with kids, (who take their time to decorate and layer) it’s easier to use non-melty things like pudding.
Yep, kid-made and kid-inspired parfaits are a hit in our house! I saw the cutest foam flower stickers that made me want to skip right to spring parfaits… and 4th of July parfaits are about my #1 favorite!
So great that your kids are into creating their own holiday treats! This parfait idea is perfect for any season. 🙂
so true with kids, mine takes forever, then loses interest half way through. But means more for me.
I love this idea. Can't wait to see what you are doing for Easter!
Very cute!! My kids would love this. I need to get some cute plastic cups, I usually do the layered jello, but this is way cuter! I love the little sprinkles!
What a great dessert for kids (little & big). Can't wait to try this one.
Clearly your kids have their mother's talent for creating great desserts!
