Grow a surprise with Magic beans

Easter is this weekend.
That means it's a long weekend and we get to eat our weight in chocolate.
Woo hoo!
I might not eat my weight in chocolate, that would be a lot but I'm gonna enjoy my little egg so much.
I also means that we get to celebrate Easter with the old and new traditions.

Our old ones are to have an egg hunt, Easter bags and a family dinner at my parents house.
Dinner will be all the trimmings just like Christmas but just a little more chocolate.
The kids will open there Easter bags to see what goodies I have in there for them.
I filled them up with crafts, toys and of course chocolates and sweets.

The newest tradition that I'm starting this year involves "Magic Beans".
I saw this idea all over pinterest last year and didn't have enough time to get it pulled together. But I got my act together this year and I'm sharing it with all you lovely people.

 The thought of a lolliepop growing over night gets me so excited that the kids will probably burst. I would have loved to wake up Easter morning to something like this.

I went to Tesco and got a pack of Jellybeans for little more than a euro. Bargain!
I put them in a sandwich bag with the top cut off and tied it with some ribbon I got in the florists. Attached the free printable below and there you have it. I can't remember where I got the giant lollie pops but if you can't find them, you could always stick a few small lollies in the ground instead.

Plant your magic jellybeans in the ground, on the night before Easter and cover them with dirt. And in the morning the magic of Easter will have grown a surprise for you.
And by the "Magic of Easter" I mean Mom or Dad have to get up early and go outside and stick the lolliepops in the ground. How magical! 

All printables on the blog are for you personal use. Feel free to print as many as you want and if you share it on your blog, let me know. I'd like to say thanks.

I honestly can't wait to see the look on the kids faces when they see the magic lollie pops.
What are your Easter traditions? Do you do anything to make it extra special for your kids. I'd love to hear them. Let me know in the comments. Maybe I'll try them out next year.
