I just love Easter. Celebrating the Risen Savior. My Savior. And to be honest, I can sometimes cringe at the commercialization of this day since it is the crux of what I believe. My salvation, my faith would be for naught if it was not for the resurrection of my King, Jesus.
But my childhood is full of the sweet memories of dying Easter eggs, egg hunts, pretty dresses and traditional Spring bonnets. So I want my children to experience these wonderful joys at the beginning of Spring while remembering the reason why we celebrate.
All of my family live up north and I feel it keenly each holiday. But we have made amazing friends here in Florida and my best friend makes us a part of their family each Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. And there are a gazillion kids. Like 15-20 each year. So we have this mega Easter egg hunt and we split up the little kiddies and the big kiddies. This year there are only TWO little kiddies. Her son and my Ella. Well that's no fun! So I got a fun idea to add to their little egg hunt.
Now I know that this idea is not new to make these lollipop flowers but I got this idea in my head today. I could make these little flower lollipops and stick them in the grass like a little field of flowers for the kids to pick like a real garden. Won't that be just the cutest thing? Have no idea if this idea is already out there so I thought I would tell all you lovely friends.
This is also nice in case you may have little ones who only crawl or toddle to have a fun thing to do. No one wants our cutie patooties to get trampled. At the very least, this will make an amazing photo op!
All you need are lollipops, scrapbook flowers or make your own with a template and some pretty paper.
I just made a tiny slit in the back with a craft knife. You can use scissors or just jam that lollipop right through the paper. Whatever will get the job done.
There you have it! This took me 5 minutes to do all of them.
I put them in a pretty pot to put on my table until Sunday (and torture the girls a little). Easier to transport too.
Let me know if you do this and take lots of pictures so I can see them! I will show you mine next week!
Lots of love to all of you!
