This is one of those things that happens when you read the email from the ballet teacher a couple of hours before the party. At the bottom she kindly mentioned that it would be nice if the kids brought treats to share. What?!?! This called for an emergency trip to the Dollar store where I got a bag of lollipops, a roll of orange streamers and some green ribbon. Fifteen minutes later (and for only $3!) I present you the treat my daughter will be sharing at ballet this afternoon.
Cut some strips of orange streamer, you'll need four per "pumpkin".
Lay the strips of streamer in a "snowflake" fashion and place the lollipop of top. Gather up all the streamers and scrunch (is that a word? I hope so!) them at the top.
Attach three pieces of ribbon around and tie them into a simple knot.
Use your scissors to curl the ribbon (my kids were fascinated by this step!)
I present to you the "Pumpkin Lollipop". Enjoy!!!
