I am not a crafty person. (You probably guessed that from my uneven lettering on the flower pot.) I got this idea from my mom's best friend, Sue. I teamed up with my friend to be my "crafting coach".
Regardless of my lack of crafting skills, I think this is a really neat idea and I've been waiting for my daughter to be old enough to partake in this. I am so excited to be able to finally share this with her. Since it involves jelly beans and lollypops, which are food, I thought I'd share here too.
I started with some basic supplies. A flower pot, a foam florists block, Easter grass, potting soil and don't forget the jelly beans and lolly pops. For the "seed" envelopes, I took a regular seed envelope and opened it up and traced it onto cardstock. Then printed the cardstock with a simple design and cut it out. After I fill the envelopes with the jelly beans, I will seal the tops.
*It is perfectly ok to skip the first 4 items and just have the kids bury the "seeds" in your yard. Since I am rocking the townhouse life right now, I don't really have a yard to bury seeds in. Also, the idea of my little princess digging in the yard in her Easter finest was more than I could take.
