March brings St Patrick's Day and lots of fun. Let's make potato soup in a jar to share with all your want-to-be Irish friends. Using six simple ingredients you will make a mixture which can be stored in a jar. When you are ready for potato soup, just add boiling water, stir and enjoy.


To be fashionable when eating your soup, we will also learn how to make a rainbow necklace from cereal.


Both of these activities are child friendly, and great activities to do with your kids.





2 cups potato flakes


1 3/4 cups powdered milk


2 tbsp chicken or vegetable bouillon


2 tsp onion flakes or minced onion


2 tsp dried parsley


1/4 tsp dried thyme


Mix all ingredients in a bowl.


Place into a jar (use a funnel for fewer spills)


Attach instructions: add 1 cup of boiling water to 1/2 cup of mixture and stir. Add salt & pepper to taste.
