Start by carefully placing 4 Rolos into your pretzel bag. If you want them to stand up, have the Rolos facing down which can be a little daunting.
Then start layering the colored skittles in rainbow order.
What a fun lesson for younger kids to help with. They can easily separate the candies by color if they are younger, or put them in Rainbow order if they are older.
Top off the Skittles with Marshmallows, either one large one or several small ones.
Use the ties that come with the pretzel bags or rainbow ribbon to attach the Skittles Rainbow St Patricks Day Treat Bag Label we created.
