Here’s how it works:
Prior to Easter, children are encouraged to do something kind for someone they know, examples include sharing a snack to reading to a younger child. On the night before Easter, they toss the seeds in the grass, make a wish for someone else, then place a marker by the seeds. When they wake on Easter morning, Lollipops will have sprouted (with the help of parents), not by water or sun, but by kindness instead.
According to legend, the tradition of Lollipop Seeds goes back hundreds of years. It was re-discovered by the Easter Bunny and brought to life by Prince, who after having her own children, began the tradition of planting Lollipop Seeds the night before Easter to show her children how kindness can bloom through one simple act.
“My dream was to share our own family’s beloved Lollipop Seeds tradition with families everywhere” said Prince. “I think creating fun, memory-making holiday traditions like this, coupled with a value like kindness, is a winning combination. You will want to have your camera ready to capture their faces when they see lollipops sprouted on Easter morning! ”
Included in the Lollipop Seeds That Sprout for Kind Deeds™ Kit are 2 seed packets, 2 seed markers, a plush bunny (with specific “instructions” for kids below) and an illustrated keepsake book complete with a memory page to capture children’s kind deeds each year. The only thing parents provide are the lollipops (style and quantity) of their choice. The kit retails for $29.95.
Lollipop Seeds That Sprout for Kind Deeds™ has already been recognized nationally with industry awards such as the 2014 “Gold Medal Recipient” in the Juvenile Books, ages 5-8 category by Mom’s Choice Awards® and the Creative Child Magazine Book of the Year Award.
