One of my favorite childhood memories is eating dirt for dessert. There was a restaurant that served a flower pot dessert for kids. It was such a fun, silly and yummy treat. Who get served dirt? In a flower pot? And then loves it? Well kids of course.
Now that I’ve made them I know they are also super easy (and still super fun). YAY! Mark this one an easy spring dessert for kids that we will make again and again!
Flower Pot Dessert- Easy Spring Dessert for Kids
what you need: clay pots, silk flowers, pudding, gummy worms, chocolate cookies (These links are all affiliate links, if you use the links you help support amomwithalessonplan.com. Thank you! I bought the pots and the flowers at a dollar store, you can probably find them at a craft store as well.)
- Wash the pots and the flower stems.
- Stick a piece of the cookie to the bottom of the pot. This will cover the hole and keep the pudding from slipping through.
- Make the pudding and scoop it into the pots.
- Put the chocolate cookies into a plastic bag. Smash a little. We had fun figuring out the “best” way to smash a cookie. (We used Oreo cookies, the centers made the mixtures a little creamy. Next time we might try just the cookie part).
- Scoop the cookie crumbs on top of the pudding.
- Stick a pretty spring flower in.
- Place a worm, digging it’s way out of the pudding.
- Have fun eating dirt with the kids! Yum, I love that part.
Did you enjoy flower pot dessert as a kid? Have you ever made this easy spring dessert for your kids?
