St. Patrick's Day - "Box O' Green"

     This is similar to what we did for Mason last year and he loved it.  It was really so simple and fun to do.  Just wander the grocery store looking for all things green.  The difficult part will be trying to make sure that you have a nice mix of healthy vs. treats.  There are lots of green treats but no so many healthy ones that travel well.  I also found a green bookmark, magnet and some CTR rings (for the kids on the Navajo Reservation where my parents are serving) at Deseret Book.  We packaged everything up in a tissue lined Flat Rate box filled with some green shredded paper and topped it all off with a lovely 'Old Irish Blessing' verse.  You can print the printable here.
