Arbor Day



We had a little celebration in honor of Arbor Day tonight. My definition of a celebration seems to revolve around a book and fun food and tonight was no different. Harris and I made cupcake trees for our treat and we read, A Tree is Nice by Janice May Udry.


The cupcake trees were easy to make because I already had the lollipops and the green candy coat (leftover from the frog party). Harris thought the red on the tree were apples and Grace thought they were blooms- either way I used sprinkles leftover from Christmas. I got the idea for the cupcakes here.

I even used recycled cupcake cups- so no trees were harmed in the making of our trees!


During dinner the children made a list of things that trees are great for:

Beautifulness (Grace's word)
Air
Shade
Climbing
Fruit
Home for birds, animals and bugs

And finally we read the charming book, A Tree is Nice. You must check this book out. It's simple and straightforward but is engaging and totally focused on the beauty, usefulness and wonder of trees!
