Project Fun Friday - "Flower Pot Pudding"



FLOWER POT PUDDING



4 - 6 Graham Crackers
1 Box Chocolate Pudding
1 - 2 Gummy Worms
Aluminum Foil (optional)
1 Large Plastic Ziploc Bag
Rolling Pin
1 - 3"-4" Ceramic Pot
1 Popsicle Stick
1 Sheet of Construction Paper
Scissors
Glue


Mix the chocolate pudding according to the directions on the box, cover with plastic wrap and
place into the refrigerator to cool.

Take the sheet of construction paper and fold it in half. Draw a flower with petals. While holding the construction paper, still folded, cut the flower out. Take the glue and drop a dot of glue on each petal of one of the flower pieces and a good sized dot of glue in the very middle. Place your Popsicle stick in the middle of the flower, creating a stem, and then add the remaining flower piece on top of the other one, sandwiching the Popsicle stick between them.
Set your flower aside to dry.

Take the graham crackers and place them in the plastic Ziploc bag and close it up, taking some
of the air out of the bag. Smash the graham crackers into fine to chunky pieces with the
rolling pin and set aside.

Take the aluminum foil and place a sheet of it inside the ceramic pot, lining the pot well to the top of the edge of the rim. This part is optional, but if you really aren't sure of the cleanliness of the pot I would do this.

* The other option is to use a plastic Solo/Dixie drinking cup or a ceramic coffee cup.
The ceramic pot just gives the project a more realistic look.


Assembly:

Fill about 1/3 of the ceramic pot with the graham cracker crumbs; reserving the remaining amount for the top.

Fill the pot with the chocolate pudding to about a 1/2" to an 1" from the top.

Add the remaining graham cracker crumbs to the pot, filling it to the top.

Place the flower in the middle of the pot with a gummy worm or two and your project is all done!

Enjoy!
