I loved this idea from a fellow blogger Jill Dubien.

|Then a big bag of Dum-Dum suckers, and a styrofoam ball to fit my pot…|
The big bag of suckers was $6.50 but this many (250) treats will last me for quite a while! I poked holes in the ball in rows lined up all along the ball. It was hard to do with the sucker sticks…I had much better luck with a thin, phillips screwdriver. I poked a bunch of holes while I was watching “The Lincoln Lawyer” with Matthew McConaughey. Oh may gosh that movie is GOOD! And MM is quite hunky as well.
The styrofoam balls are kinda pricey. I didn’t want to spend $4.50. So get a coupon for Hobby Lobby or Joannes before you go to get 40% off. I happen to have one I’ve used in my space and planets unit…so it was nice that I didn’t have to spend more.
|Oops! I see a hole in my Lollypop Tree…better go fix that!|
Then I added the pops a few rows at a time….then added more holes….more pops…repeat….repeat…. It was kinda boring. So get a nice DVD while you are working and it makes it a lot more bearable! 😀
But look how it turned out! My kiddos are gonna love “winning” a pop for good behavior. Oh ya!
