DO-IT-YOURSELF: A sweet bouquet for kids’ parties

Sticky little fingers leaving marks on all your windows at your kids’ birthday parties?

These cute sweetie-sosatie ideas will not only help minimize the amount of scrubbing you will have to do after the party, but is also pretty and festive and the kids will love it!

What you will need:

1. Big tin or bowl (you can tie a nice festive ribbon around it)

2. Big fizzers (any colour)

3. Marshmallows (any colour)

4. Wooden sosatie sticks


Warm the fizzers up slightly so that they become pliable (you can do this either by rubbing them between your hands, leaving them on a windowsill in the sun for a couple of minutes or moving them back and forth over a burning candle. NOTE: do not warm them up too much, they shouldn’t melt!)


Remove the wrapping and roll them up into little rolypoly’s


Stick a sosatie stick into the fizzer so that it looks like a lollipop


Thread two or three marshmallows at a time onto a sosatie stick


Arrange these in your tin or bowl so that it looks like one big sweet, colourful bouquet

**If you are doing this for very small kids, just look after them so that they don’t hurt themselves with the sticks.

We did this for the kids’ table at a function yesterday and within minutes the tin was empty and there were many happy, sugar-filled kids milling around with their fizzer lollies! A definite winner!
