Easy Pudding Pool Party Treats

I’ve seen cute pudding pool party teddy graham treats all over the internet. I didn’t have time to make blue jello for water.

Since my kids love chocolate, I got pudding snack packs instead and used blue sprinkles to cover the top. The sand is brown sugar. The kids were amazed that they could eat the sand!

  2. What a wonderfully cute party! I love the idea of the fruit in the waffle cones. I am planning my daughter’s ice cream sundae party and added these as an idea. Thank you for showing people that they can make those cute flip flops out of something other than Nutter Butters. I have a peanut allergic child and have always ignored parties with those shown, but now I know I can do it myself. Thank you for your wonderful ideas and for sharing them with us!

  3. These are some REALLY great ideas, Amy – also good tips for one of those days when your kids are at home bored or want an impromptu play date!!!

  4. Beautiful photographs, as always! You have so many fun and creative ideas for this party.
