I can't believe I thought I didn't have anything to contribute to the Simply Lovely Flowerpots Fair over at Susan's. I missed another fun fair again because of my forgetfulness!
Jessica's delightful little Flower Pot Cupcakes reminded me of a party craft/favor we made a couple of years ago at my daughter's birthday party. It's a very simple, fun, yummy activity to do and perfect for parties.
It'd also be perfect to make these in May during the month we honor Mary, our Blessed Mother.
First you set out your cute little flowerpot:
and put an Oreo cookie in the very bottom of it (to keep the pudding from ozzing out):
then give each child a container of chocolate pudding to add to the flowerpot:
Crumble some Oreo cookies and let the children sprinkle that on top of pudding, then add some colorful candy sprinkles on top (Jessica's idea of green tinted coconut for grass would work wonderfully too):
The finishing touch can be a simple colorful lollipop that the child inserts in the center of her flowerpot. I found these flower pops at Party City for only .39 cents a piece:
And there you have it.
A beautiful little flowerpot of sweetness!
