Lollipop Fun!

I made this lollipop tree to use as a behavior incentive in my classroom.  My students sit in clusters, and work towards earning team points.  Once a table meets their goal, they have to decide, collectively, on what their reward will be.  I thought the Lollipop Tree would be a fun addition to my reward choices to offer them!


To make, gather these materials:

-clay pot
-Styrofoam ball
-lollipops
-paint (optional)
-embellishments (optional)

I painted my pot and added some cute embellishments.  Next, I lined the inside of the pot with hot glue.  Finally, I glued the ball in and started sticking the lollipops in.  *Be sure to put the lollis close together!!

Voila! Didn't it turn out cute!?  This will look very nice with my western themed classroom.  Oh, and I looove gingham!

Love it! It will look cute on your desk and I like how it can be adapted to fit any theme :)

I made something similar (lollipop "bouquet") with a cone shaped piece of styrofoam!
