Magical Easter Lollipops (an Easter tradition)

Last year for Easter, we adopted a new silly tradition that I saw online.  (It was everywhere…….you’ve probably seen it too??)  It involves planting jelly beans…….and having Lollipops sprout up the next day.



My kiddos looooooved it.  And talked about it  A L L.  Y E A R.  L O N G.



So it’s now a must-do tradition.





Now……just to be clear.  We have explained to our children many times, that if they plant jelly beans any other time of the year, they won’t grow.  The magic of Easter makes those colorful beans grow.  I didn’t want to find piles of buried jelly beans in August/October/February and then have sad little faces, wondering why their jelly beans didn’t grow. Ha! ;)


We celebrate the bunny/egg/overly commercial part of Easter on Saturday.  And reserve Sunday for the reflection of Christ’s resurrection. 


So, Friday evening, we’ll let the kiddos plant some jelly beans again.  They’ve reminded us for days and days and days…  (And yeah, I know these are wood chips…..but the planters are all filled with them and we’re renting, so I couldn’t dig up the grass.)




Then we have them bury their beans.  And then wait.  And dream about lollipops sprouting up over night.




And sprout they do.  Just like magic!




And this year??  Bigger spiraled lollipops.  They’ll be thrilled!  (Last year, they were blow pops.)




Such a fun tradition we’ve adopted.


Have you done the same with your kids?

Tell me about it.

Do they love it as much as mine do?



Happy Easter!




Enjoy your weekend!
