Sometimes, it is just nice to let people know you are glad they are there. The kids at my church did this one Sunday when PK was talking about service. We had the kids be greeters and then during their lesson, they made these Lollipop flowers. When the last song was playing they went in and handed them out. It was neat and really, who doesn’t like a good lollipop every once in a while?!
- Enough flower circles and petals as you need Glad You Popped In
- crayons, scissors
- something to cover the table
To put them together, cut out the circles (I have some that cut fancy edges, so I did that ahead of time). I also cut out the leaves ahead of time too. Put a cloth down on the table or paper underneath as they color. I used many colors on my flower and just drew circles all around and think it turned out neat. Next up, use a pencil to punch a small hole on each dot. A regular hole punch is too big and the things will fall right off the lollipop stick. Then just slip on the flower and then the leaf. If you find it doesn’t stay, a little piece of tape can help.
Super easy to do and not very expensive this small treat brought a smile to many faces. The adults opened theirs up just as quick as the kids did! Have fun!
