the gumdrop lollipop
I am wayyyy behind on blog posts!
Teacher/Staff appreciation week at Cameron's elementary school was the week before last. Each day of the week has a theme. One of the days was "bring your teachers flowers" day. I try to come up with something a bit different each year so the teachers do not feel like they only get fresh cut flowers. However, since Cameron is in 4th grade, I was struggling with an idea this year.
We decided to make a gumdrop (or orange slices!) flower on a stick! It turned out really cute and different, however, this photo is not very good. I took the orange slices and laid them in a flower pattern. Then pushed a lollipop stick through one "side," then the other, and put a small piece of tape around the base of the sticks to keep them together. It is a bit tricky at first, but it works.
