Planting Jelly Beans for an Easter Morning Surprise

🐰 Fun Idea for Easter

Here is a fun family tradition to start for Easter morning! We started this last year and will be sure to continue the magic. The week before Easter the "Easter Bunny" sent our son a very special package — a small bag of jelly beans with a note that read:

You are a sweet kid! I thought you deserved a special treat this year.
These jelly beans are magic, but only one day a year.
If you plant them any other time, you're sure to shed a tear.
Plant them in your yard, in a spot that's bright and sunny,
And on Easter morning, you'll have a surprise from ME, the Easter Bunny!

After picking the perfect spot in our yard, our son planted the jelly beans and couldn't wait to see what would happen. 

On Easter morning, he came out to discover that large chocolate carrots had "grown" in place of the jelly beans. The look on his face was worth the planning, as well as digging up jelly beans in the middle of the night.
