Earth Day Pudding Treats

For the past two Earth Days, I've been going to my oldest daughters school and teaching them about the importance of recycling and planting gardens in a yummy way.  This treat is so easy to make.  Here are the steps:
  1. You'll need small terracotta pots, individual snack size pudding cups, green spoons, fake flowers, hot glue gun, Oreos, gallon size bag, and gummy worms.
  2. Crush the Oreos in the gallon size bag so that it looks like dirt.  Cut worms in half.
  3. Hot glue one flower to the tip of each spoon.
  4. Place pudding cups in pots and remove top.
  5. Carefully place enough crushed Oreos on top of pudding to cover it. 
  6. Place gummy worm into the pudding and place spoon in center of each pudding snack.
When the kids are done with their snack they rinse out their pudding snacks and recycle them.  I also have real dirt and flower seeds on hand for them to plant in their pots.  Tip:  Cut wax paper for the bottom of the pot so the dirt won't fall out.  Bring plastic wrap and rubber bands to cover the pots so they won't spill on their way home.  The kids love it!
