St. Patrick's Day food for a preschool party
St. Patrick's Day food for a preschool party is a great way to show the children in your life about the Irish Holiday. I will share ideas on how to make this special holiday even more memorable. St. Patrick's Day food is a fun and exciting way for children to enjoy the holiday.
The food for your preschool party is very important. Of course, you will need to stick to your budget. For these young children finger-foods are always best.
Finger-sandwiches always go well, and you can get creative with them. How about green egg salad, tuna fish, or even chicken salad. Simply add green food coloring to the salad dressing or mayonnaise.
If you have the time and ambition to bake your own bread or rolls, it is easy to color the bread green as you are mixing up the dough.
A very simple yet tasty cracker spread is cream cheese on your choice of crackers. You can purchase low fat cream cheese or regular. Any type of plain crackers works well here so whatever type your family enjoys will work here I prefer townhouse but my grand child prefer regular saltines. I have found that most preschoolers as well as children of all ages love this type of cheese on crackers.
To make this St. Patrick's Day food simply soften the cream cheese and add a few drops of green food coloring. I like to soften my cream cheese ad sprinkle in bacon bits or little pieces of summer sausage and garlic to taste.
