Ok Ok, I know Easter is all about chocolate right? But the reality is lolly pops are sooooo easy! and have I mentioned cheap!
The kids love to share goodies with their friends, and it's so funny but a highlight of their kinder life is being about to give something out to the whole class. I guess it makes them feel special, it's also nice to get them thinking about the joy involved in giving to others (even if it's just lolly pops).
So I picked up a bag of flat lolly pops from the discount store for $2, and that was enough to cover the 45 kids in both Lulu and Tommy's classes.
To snaz it up a bit and tie it into the Easter theme (as that is the whole point behind the giving) I asked Kalie at Pink Ink Doodle for a copy of her gorgeous Easter Printables, which she is kindly sharing with anyone, you just need to email her. Love her generosity.
There are a number of different style printables to suit a number of ideas, I used the small square printables (often used as cupcake toppers)
So basically to turn them into lolly pop covers I did the following:
- Printed off the pdf file
- Cut away the excess and then cut into strips (so one of each image was in each strip)
- Then I trimed the strips down the middle
So what I was left with was two squares side by side, one 'Happy Easter' and one image.
- After this I folded them in half
- On the inside (blank side) I put two pieces of double sided tape, one on each edge
- Then I stuck the lolly pop (which has a clear plastic cover on it) in the middle and sealed with the double sided tape simply by pressing together.
This is what I ended up with:
