Spring is finally here! I honestly love each season, and for spring my favorite things are the longer days, the warmer afternoons and the flowers blooming. There are also so many holidays and special occasions to celebrate this time of year. If you have been here a while, you know how much I value time, and celebrating the magical things in life are so memorable and fun.
What is The Magic of Spring?
Knowing that spring would be here soon, we were excited when the Spangler Candy, (the makers of Dum Dums Lollipops) sent us a Magic of Spring package to create a candy garden
Inside the box was a sack of the “magic” jelly beans, a recipe card and a package of Dum Dums. You can plant your garden wherever you can give it some love and attention outdoors or indoors.
Even if it does not feel like spring where you are, you can still grow a “magic” garden inside. Using a box with some plastic grass with styrofoam underneath.
We planted the “magic” jelly beans …
and the next day, the beans “sprouted” into amazing Dum Dum flowers!
You can incorporate this into your spring celebration too! To find more yummy garden projects and ideas search social media using the hashtag #TheMagicOfSpring. You can also visit TheMagicOfSpring.com . You can also follow them on Twitter and Facebook.
Creating fun magical moments like this are ways to celebrate the coming of spring. Kids will remember this and they may learn to celebrate the little things in life too!
Create a Magic of Spring Garden
All you need are:
- shoebox or similar size container
- styrofoam piece
- jelly beans
- Dum Dum pops
- cupcake liners (I used 2 sizes)
- love and imagination
The jelly beans are “”planted” on the grass and the next day, place the flower pops in the grass when no one is looking. Before placing the pops in the grass, punch them through a cupcake liner or two.
