St. Patrick’s Day DIY Edible Matching Game


Party or not, your little lady or man will love playing a round of this edible matching game on St. Patrick’s Day. Chocolate for breakfast, that’s right, every kid’s dream. Matching games were (Ok, are) my favorite and this one is so simple you can whip it up in about 10 minutes. All you need are Hershey Kisses, round labels and a bunch of markers. You can choose any colors you want, but I thought rainbow was quite appropriate for the upcoming holiday. Then it’s time to work that memory…




Supply List:

Hershey Kisses (I chose the Creme De Menth flavor for the color of course!)
3/4″ Round White Labels (I purchased these Avery ones from Staples)

To Make:

Color your labels, coloring two circles of each color. I chose rainbow, and also used a stamp pad to add gold too (Why? because I love gold, and didn’t have a gold marker). Let the labels dry for a few minutes then peel them off and adhere to the bottom of your Hershey Kisses. Guess what?

You’re done! Set up your kisses in matching game form and gather the kids or party attendees to test their skills.

Really, everyone wins in this game since (win or lose)  you get to eat the pieces afterwards!

This could be easily adapted for just about any celebration. You can play the game with numbers and letters, or little pictures (if you’re artistic), or you can get a whole ‘lotta markers and make it even more colorful than this simple rainbow. In addition to being a fun party game, a set of these would make a great, and super budget-friendly, favor too!

    Such a great idea for school, birthday or family parties! You could also print on the labels. 🙂 You can see which template to use on the pic of the Avery labels.

    I was perusing the web, looking for great St. Patty’s Day activities to share with the pediatric therapy professionals we serve, and found this matching game I was wondering if I could have permission to feature the photo on our Instagram feed.


    As you may know, I am unable to create a clickable link to your post through Instagram but I would obviously credit your blog and put a link to the specific page the post came from along with suggestion that they visit that page on your blog for directions and more pictures in the description if that works…

    Here is the post that has the image I would love to share

    Thanks so much in advance!
