|Today we had fun planting a mini mint garden.|
But not the kind you might be thinking. This is the edible kind, and no, I don't mean just the mint. I mean the whole garden.
I saw this idea at Practically Living, but I modified it a little. I started with regular pudding (the kind you cook on the stove) simply because it tastes so much better than instant pudding and I didn't add the mint flavoring to the pudding. I substituted crushed Mint Oreos instead for plain Oreos on top the pudding, before sticking in the springs of mint. For the plant markers, I wrote their initials on wooden disposable spoons instead of a popsicle stick. They look just like plant markers when they are put in the cups...
|but they double as something to eat the snack with.|
