Lollypop Tree

I loved this idea from a fellow  blogger Jill Dubien.



Classroom Lollypop Tree.


If you'd like to make one too just click HERE for Lollypop Tree tutorial.

I got a cute ceramic pot from Hobby Lobby for $2.00! Such a deal!





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! :D
But look how it turned out!  My kiddos are gonna love "winning" a pop for good behavior. Oh ya!
