She suggests using juice or soda, but you can also use plain seltzer if you’re trying to avoid sugary drinks with your kids. The fruit will infuse the water with plenty of flavor. Either way, what a fun, healthy way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with your kids!

Kristi at Addicted 2 Decorating shared a tutorial for making a magnetic chalkboard spice rack, and frankly it’s genius. The spices go in small glass jars with magnets on the lids, so you can pull them down and stash them easily. The chalkboard means you can label what’s what and change things up as you replace the spices in your stash. Love it!
