To build excitement and anticipation: Sandy Szabo, Jenny Szabo, and Tara Finegan, the three mama bears of New Beginnings Childcare of Suffolk in Bohemia, had the adorable idea to use little twigs after the children planted their candy tree seeds. It looks as if the tree is slowly sprouting and builds the excitement and anticipation for the children

Thank you for the awesome idea!

For additional fun:
You could paint the twigs with white glitter paint and use slightly bigger twigs every couple of days.
On the day before Easter, you could glue little pieces of different colored tissue paper to the ends of the branches to look as if candy buds are popping out. See photos on our FB page…
