Looking for a silly Easter/Spring tradition to do with the kids?

Try planting jelly beans, and they just may magically grow into Lollipops overnight! 😃

Well maybe this is just a cute idea found online, but I think it could be super fun for younger kids!

Here’s my indoor version planting jelly beans in a small flower pot and using crumbled brownies for “dirt”. The next morning you can put in some lollipops!

If you’re feeling extra crafty, try twisting and then taping a few paper cupcake liners around the base of a sucker to look like flowers! I think a group of them together look so cute! This could be a fun Spring gift idea or centerpiece too.

    I did this every year on Easter Eve for my daughter when she was young – we called it Easter Magic ….there were some years that I was running to Walgreens in the middle of the night for lollipops!

    We plant our magic jelly beans the night before Easter. Then on Easter morning huge colorful lollipops 🍭 have grown! It’s so cute!

    • Lina D

    So a cute idea, I’m sure my 3 year old will love it!

  11. Stephanie

    I do this but I unwrap the lollipops because otherwise my kids would question how they grow already wrapped…and that’s just my 6 year old asking that! Ha! I have them each grow their own in a little pot then the next morning 3 lollipops have appeared! It’s fun to see their reactions!

    • Lina D

      How fun!

    • JES

      Oh, that’s a good idea. My toddler would probably come up with a question like that!

  12. Amanda

    I kinda wanna do this just so I have an excuse to bake brownies. 🙂

    • Lina D

      Oh haha!

    We have been doing this for 12 years now. My oldest is 17 and the tradition continues. We’ve never had to explain away the wrappers though. But we had to emphasize that this special event can only happen overnight Holy Saturday into Easter Sunday. We had visions of little dirt mounds of jelly beans all through out our lawn and the accompanying ants etc. We also do 3 beans/3 lollipops.

    Why am I seeing comments from March 2017?

    Love all your posts but since the update I keep getting repeats of the same posts 2-3 times a day. Also some of your posts are cutting off and can’t read them. Just wanted to let you know. I know you guys are working on it but wasn’t sure if you were aware of all the glitches. Keep up the good work!

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hi Jackie, I’m SO sorry for the repeats and the posts getting cut off. These issues are two that we are working to correct ASAP! Please be sure to email with any problems you are seeing. Thank you!! 🙂

    • Lina D

      How wonderful! 😉 Enjoy.

  20. ReneeAnn

    That is so cute! My 3 year old would keep trying to get outside to eat the jellybeans out of the dirt.

  21. Justine

    That is a darling idea! Thank you.

  22. Cynthia

    We did this tonight, can’t wait to see my son’s face in the AM!

  23. Laurie

    What a great idea! We just planted the jelly beans tonight and I can’t wait to see the look on my daughter’s face tomorrow morning!

    • Jyllann Norton

      Sounds good to me. Going to see if my daughter will do it with my granddaughter.
