Hi everyone, It’s Erica from Messy Momma Crafts here to bring you a fun St. Patrick’s Day treat. It’s hard to believe but the groundhog has said that spring is just around the corner and that means snow will start melting in Northern Michigan and warmer weather will be on the way. And rainbows! Lots of beautiful Michigan rainbows.
These Pot of Gold Rainbow Jars are full of colorful sweets and remind me that spring is on the way. You can give them away as gifts to your kiddos or share them with their teachers. They also make a really bright and cheery addition to your desk.

Here’s how to make your own DIY pot of gold rainbow jars.
1. clean the jars.
First, wash the mason jars with warm soapy water. Then, rinse and dry them out. This is super important because you (or someone else) will probably be eating the candy right out of the jar.
2. Sort the Skittles by color
You don’t have to but sorting the Skittles into color groups will make these rainbow jars a little easier.
This is also a really perfect time to let your preschooler or toddler help you. Let them sort the candy by color – it teaches them fine motor skills and color recognition.
3. add the rolos to the jar.
Add a handful of wrapped Rolo chocolates to the bottom of the jars to act as the gold at the end of a rainbow.
4. Add the marshmallows to the jar.
Add a handful of miniature marshmallows on top of the wrapped Rolos to act as the clouds at the end of a rainbow.
5. Layer the skittles.
If you sorted the Skittles into color groups, this step will be really easy. If not you can pick through the skittles to find the colors you need like I did.
Green will be on top of the marshmallows, then yellow, orange and red.
That’s it! Put the lid back on top and it’s completely finished. You can add these free St. Patrick’s Day printable gift tags to the jars as a fun finishing touch!
