Fruit {Jellies} on a Stick




Okay. Here is a quick idea if you want party favors and don't have the time to come up with something fun!

Materials:

Container...plastic cup, flower pot, tea cup...whatever you have
Flour
Crinkle paper
Assorted Fruit Jellies {Trader Joes}

Directions:

Fill container with flour
Put Crinkle paper on top to cover flour
Cut lollipop sticks in various heights
Stick them in the flour
That is it!

Takes minutes! I also cut some jellies and put them on the glass...endless possibilities. No mess. No effort...well maybe a little...and they are A.DORABLE. They look like a little bouquet of baloons!

FOR CHRISTMAS: Use brightly-colored gumdrops {they will look like christmas lights!} and place them on the lollipop sticks! So very festive and fun. Be sure to have your children do this project for YOU! They will so enjoy it and feel like they contributed to the party!

Happy Happy Friday!

This is a fun activity to have your children make to take to a summer picnic. No need for dessert...just fruit jellies on a stick!

Next Week: Fireside Treats {chocolate & peanut butter S'MORES} for inside and out!

  4. This is very much my level of "project-ness"
    I could do this...thanks for the cute idea!
    I'm going to use it for Lydi's next birthday. She wants suckers-like-the-big-kids...but hard candy still makes me nervous with her.
