Sandy Szabo, Jenny Szabo, and Tara Finegan, the three mama bears of New Beginnings Childcare of Suffolk in Bohemia, had the adorable idea to use little twigs after the children planted their candy tree seeds. It looks as if the tree is slowly sprouting and builds the excitement and anticipation for the children 🙂
For additional fun: You could paint the twigs with white glitter paint and use slightly bigger twigs every couple of days. On the day before Easter, you could glue little pieces of different colored tissue paper to the ends of the branches to look as if candy buds are popping out.
I started this with my daughter and she got SUPER EXCITED when she saw a mere 3 inch white glitter twig in the spot where she had planted her seeds. I can't wait to see the look on her face as her candy tree continues to bloom 🙂
Thanks so much to the Szabo mamas for this super cute, creative idea!!!

Here's a fun, easy, affordable option for parents who prefer to craft a tree to complete the magic for your little darlings 🙂
Just get a styrofoam cone from your local craft store similar to the white one in the attached image (The one I purchased- shown in photo of the completed tree- came with a wooden dowel attached for a trunk) However, if you can't find one like that you could just grab a branch from the backyard and insert it into the bottom of the cone.
Use pins to attach flower, leaves or a combo of both.
I used tooth picks to attach the candy.
Plant the completed tree into the pot or the ground, where your child planted the seeds, while your child is sleeping on the night before Easter.
When your child wakes up on Easter morning, soak up the joy and cuteness on their adorable faces when they see the magic that your created for them 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
