Planting Jelly Beans

Have you ever planted "magic" jelly beans? We did this with the little boys three years ago, it is soooo fun! I didn't do anything fancy- I just made a hand written tag- glued a jelly bean onto it- filled a sm. bag with jelly beans- and attached the tag with some curling ribbon. Pretty simple, but oh the fun we had... so if you want to have some fun, here is how you do it ........















To plant the "magic" jelly beans-first we had them put some rocks in the bottom of their pot, then scoop some dirt on top & as you can see you have to poke those jelly beans into the dirt oh so carefully........
















after the jelly beans had been planted.. they stayed at Grandma's for a few days, and everytime the boys came to visit they watered them really good-- then one day when they came guess what they found..........


















were they surprised?? Their smiles say it all!!! This is a fun activity to do with little ones. You still have time to plant some magic jelly beans, they don't take long to grow- and the memories are priceless. So get planting......














Because if you plant "magic" jelly beans..... You WILL get these!!! :)
