Blarney Stones

I thought I would share this fun St. Patrick's Day craft—making Blarney stones. They have to dry out for several days so if you want in on the action you better start soon.  

We are going to a friends for St. Patrick's Day so we thought we would make some and added some trinkets inside. I had hoped to put SP medals but our local Catholic store had none. So I just put
whatever I could find there—general crap that neither the child nor the parents will want :) The pictures are of stones that have yet to be baked. They are slightly more greyish once done. Ours are smaller than those in the directions but I had to make 23 and was getting tired of brewing coffee. Each stone has a little prize inside and the kids use a hammer to break them open to get their prize. We've seen how much kids like hammers!
 


3 people are laughing with me:
