Plant a Lollipop Garden for Easter

Plant jelly beans

Create magic and enjoy the wonder of a child’s imagination as they watch the Jelly Beans grow into their own special Lollipop Garden.

The night before Easter, have your children plant their Jelly Beans. Have fun as your child carefully digs little holes and “plant” a jelly bean in each hole. Let them rest overnight.  Once they are asleep, carefully place a lollipop where each bean had been planted and in the morning, your children/grandchildren will have an amazing surprise.

Your children/grandchildren will delight when they see what grew overnight – a Lollipop Garden. This makes a fun twist on the traditional Egg Hunt as well.

If you have an incredibly perceptive child, make sure you replace the same color sucker with the same color jelly bean that your child planted.

Get your little ones really excited about what can happen when we all choose and share our joy, and the impact it can have in the lives of others. Use this as a teaching tool for the character quality, you can ask your kids questions as you are planting the jelly beans, and use statements such as, “What do you think happens when we plant seeds of loving kindness every day?” Or “Why is it so important to plant seeds of joy into other people’s lives?”

Not only will you children or grandchildren have fun, it will help them think about others who may not be as fortunate and what their needs may be. This helps instill what the meaning of Easter is about.

A Christmas Eve Party for the Little Ones.

new-tradition

This is a really nice tradition that you can start with your children or grandchildren this year.  You can turn this night into a party for all of you.

Start with a box and fill it with Christmas decorated pajamas, a Christmas movie, hot chocolate, snacks for the movie and a Christmas book.  Wrap all of it up in Christmas wrap and pass it out early Christmas Eve. This can also be done a day in advance if necessary.

It’s a wonderful way to bond and feel closeness with your children or grandchildren.  In today’s world so many children turn to their Iphone or tablet for communication and it has become a new way of bonding.  It’s time to go back and connect one on one with your loved ones.

Another thing you can put in the box if you choose would be a board game.  These are wonderful as you are what playing with one another and not with a computer.  This year take some of the technology out of your Christmas and find a way back to its real meaning which is love and togetherness.

Many blessings,

Elf Donuts!

elf-donuts

Elf donuts! Actually these are Cheerios to leave with Santa’s cookies! This is the cutest thing ever! I put this on my Facebook page last year and everyone just loves this idea and I wanted to share it with you. Just put a few drops of frosting then add sprinkles, confectionery or brown sugar. You can make a little box from a matchbox, small jewelry box, or cut up a cardboard box, tape it, and decorate with Christmas wrap. This is great to make with your children and grandchildren. I found this cute idea on Pinterest . Enjoy the holidays my friends,

Christmas blessings,
