Edible Spring Flowers

Pin It
You knew this was coming right?  I couldn't resist using the seasonal M&M mix as inspiration to produce another "toddler approved" template.  This time around, we're using the plain M&M "Bunny Mix" to create flowers in preparation for spring!

I've uploaded to scribd the Spring Flower Template in color or black and white.  1 bag of "bunny mix" will have enough colors to make about 9 flowers.

Sort candy by color.

Then place corresponding colored candy to template.  I purposely left the petals a neutral color so that your child can have a choice in how the finished product will look.

Admire, then devour!


  1. I love this idea! Thanks so much for sharing! I added it to my blog today and think that we'll be doing this with jelly beans after Easter to work on counting, colors, and patterns.

  2. Lol. Exactly the kind of fine motor skills that my kids excel in.

  3. I really think this is cute! I was even thinking that you could also apply a dab of frosting to the paper to adhere the m&m and then the kiddos could take it home from daycare and eat it later, reminiscent of the candy dots on the paper...... lol
