For our Very Hungry Caterpillar birthday party, I wanted to give out homemade lollipops but I failed at them, and don’t have time for trying them again. Instead I bought some suckers.
(Grandma: the recipe was fine, I just didn’t understand “hard crack” and I think they were the wrong temperature. They tasted good still!)
The preschooler I watch loves to paint, she helped me pain most of our decorations for this party. We both painted these lollipops to look like the ones in the book. She also paired the suckers, ribbon and painted lollipops together while I tied them.
Lollipops or Suckers
1. Draw lollipops on cardstock and paint them.
2. Once they are dry, cut out the lollipops.
3. Cut small pieces of ribbon.
4. Tie the lollipop pictures to the suckers.
5. Paint a cereal box green. We could have added a second coat to make it look a bit better, but we went with the quick and easy way this time, and only did one. We also only did the top half.
6. After the cereal box is dry, stuff it with crunched up newspaper.
7. Use a knife to make slits for the suckers to go into. Stick the suckers into the holes and put the box into a basket. Any other lollipop pictures can be taped to the front of the cereal box.
Now it’s ready for the party table. Thanks for checking this out, I hope you come back after the party to see the other details!
