Graduation Treats

graduation pops It is that time of year again… Graduation time!  Lots of parties and memories to be made!  If you are looking for a festive fun little treat to bring the party, take a peek at these Graduation Hat Pops. They are quick and easy and lets face it CUTE as can be.  Plus you can make them in lots of colors to make them fit your school colors.

To make these you will need:

  • Mini M&Ms
  • Mini Reeses (come in a bag in the candy bar section of the store)
  • Mini Hershey’s plain chocolate bars (came in an 8 pack in the candy section)
  • Air Head Extremes
  • Sucker sticks

Start by  unwrapping you mini chocolate bars and cutting them into 2 squares.  You will have one skinny piece left over save that to melt for putting them together.  You do not need them all so if you need a chocolate fix go ahead and eat one 🙂

 Take the skinny piece of chocolate left over and melt it so you can use it as “glue” to put your caps together.  I put mine in a glass bowl for 3o seconds, they do not look melted but once you touch it, it is soft and melted.  Gently twist the sticking into the wide end of the reeses mini.  Then dip the skinny end in chocolate and “glue” it to the bottom of the square piece of chocolate.  You will want to make sure you stick it to the side with words, so the smooth side will be the top of your cap.

If you are in a hurry put them in the freezer to harden the chocolate, I just let them set a few hours then came back to finish after the chocolate had set.

Use scissors to cut the air heads into thin sections, attach them with melted chocolate to the top of the cap.  Top it off with a mini M&M.  I made a stand to hold mine out of scrapbook paper and a styrofoam block.

Kindergarten Graduation Snacks ~ Healthy and Fun!

Do you have a kindergartener this year?  I do, and wanted to provide a snack for his graduation party.  I don’t know about your child’s class, but I think most of them get plenty of sugary treats during their parties!  That is fine, but why not have something cute, and at least somewhat healthy too?!

You will need:

Fruit cups or applesauce cups

4×4 inch card stock squares (1 per cup)

googly eyes

glue stick

Sharpie (optional)

bakers twine, thin strips of paper, or ribbon

Begin by cutting your squares of paper into 4×4 squares.

Then, Turn your fruit cup upside down and glue the square to the bottom of the cup.  The thin plastic to open it should now be on the bottom.  Once that is glued onto the bottom of the cup, glue the googly eyes.  I found they stayed on fine with normal glue stick, but if your fruit cup is textured or more round then mine, a hot glue gun may work better.  Glue the eyes on and draw a face with your sharpie if you desire.

Now, cut three strips (per cup) of bakers twine, ribbon, or even of paper.  Tie them in a small knot at the top and glue them to the top of your graduation cap. (The square you glued on first)

Feel free to write something on the top, or leave it plain!  Would work for any graduate.  Would also make a fun addition to a gift basket of supplies for the high school graduate that is headed to college.  I provided some links above for the products on Amazon, why not order them now and be ready to make them when the time comes?
