Every year for Mother's Day my kids want to make something homemade for their grandmas. So I typically end up hauling out all of my crafting supplies and letting them go for it. However this year I came across something at the grocery store that I thought would be a really pretty (and edible) semi-homemade gift...
it's a tulip bouquet!
The flower part of the bouquet are actually creme-filled cakes made by Little Debbie. They come in pink too.
I dyed some sweet coconut flakes green for the grass. And then I inserted a bamboo skewer into a piece of green licorice for the stem.
This was super easy to assemble. My kids can't stop asking if it's time to make their real bouquets yet . I hope I get one from them too!

My youngest son will be graduating from Kindergarten in a few weeks, so I thought it would be fun to create little favors to hand out to all of the graduates. The inspiration for the favor came from this amazing craft created by Zakka Life - see it here. I made graduation pops! instructions.
