Magic Easter Beans – a seriously cute and super simple Easter tradition

Last year, we began an adorable Easter tradition which I found via THIS post from Meet The Dubiens. This was so simple and quick to put together and R just LOVED it. He was still talking about it months later. Here is what happened last Easter…..

On Easter eve we found some magical beans…

We dug a hole in the garden….

and we planted the magic Easter beans.

We patted down the soil…

and gave it all a good watering.

Then, on Easter morning, we went outside and found this growing in the garden!

Yummy! I like gardening!

This morning, I prepared this year’s magical Easter beans and lollipop. Here are the beans….

 And here is what R will find on Easter Sunday after planting his magical beans.

  1. What a sweet tradition! I love it!

    • Thanks Rebekah! We had so much fun with this last year and R would point to that spot in the garden for months afterwards, talking about the magic beans.

  2. LOVE this! (If we can get the snow melted a bit more and the ground unfreezes enough.)

    • Hi Melissa! Perhaps you could try an indoor version? Plant some beans in a pot inside the house?
