Carrot-Garden-Pudding-Cups-Kids-Easter-DessertThe kids table at Easter are going to love this kids Easter dessert of carrot garden pudding cups. While this looks like a real starter garden, it is actually made out of pudding, crushed up cookies and carrot gummies. I was able to find the carrot gummies at the dollar store and online but you may be able to find them in other stores around Easter time.

Lay the piece of green construction paper horizontally on a flat surface. Take one pudding cup and line it up to either the top of bottom edge so you know where to cut the strip for the grass. It should cover the entire pudding cup.
