What you’ll need

Finished fruit rainbow surrounded by bowls of the different fruits.

  • Cut fruit in all of the colors of the rainbow!

In this video we used strawberries, cuties, bananas, green grapes, blueberries, and purple grapes!

  • Nonfat vanilla greek yogurt for clouds!

  • Pineapple tidbits for gold!

finished cucumber leprechaun hats

Leprechaun Hat

  • 1 cucumber to make the hat!

We halved the cucumber and separated the halves. We cut the first half longways to make the body of the hat. We slice the second half and cut the slices into half moons to create the brim.

  • 1 bell pepper to make the buckle!

We cut one bell pepper into small squares to create the hat’s buckle.

  • Provolone cheese for the hat band!

We cut the cheese into slices and laid them on the cucumber as a hat band.

Finished leprechaun face sandwich with cucumber hat

Leprechaun Face

  • Whole wheat bread

We used two slices of whole wheat bread to make this sandwich. We used a cup to cut out the circle shape of the face.

  • Peanut butter

We used peanut butter as the protein for this healthy and tasty sandwich!

  • Banana

We added banana slices we had leftover from the fruit rainbows in the sandwich and then added one last half slices as the mouth.

  • Shredded carrots

We used shredded carrots for the hair, beard, and eyebrows of the leprechaun face.

  • 2 blueberries for the eyes
