Jelly Bean Planting

I’d read on Pinterest about the idea of having the kids plant jelly beans the night before Easter so that the Easter Bunny can use his magic to make them grow into lollipops.

Super cute right?

So of course we had to do it.

Preston and Madison each got three special jelly beans to plant and we headed outside before bed to plant them.

We then covered them up with a bucket to keep the crows and nighttime visitors from getting to them.

Then sometime in the middle of the night, the magic happened and those jelly beans grew into lollipops!

And got covered right back up with the bucket to wait for Preston and Madison to wake up Easter morning and find them!

Oh the excitement!

You seriously should have seen their faces when they walked out in the morning and lifted the bucket to see that six lollipops had grown!

It was so stinkin’ cute! Definitely something we’re going to have to add to the list of Easter traditions.
