Did anyone else LOVE dirt cups as a child? There is something nostalgic to me about having a dirt cup! Dirt cups can be used for so many different occasions but we made these easy succulent dirt cups today for earth day.
Earth day is a great opportunity to teach our children about the importance of taking care of mother earth. We spent the day talking about ways we can contribute to making the Earth a beautiful place. On our list on things we can do this week are planting flowers, using these DIY seed bombs, picking up garbage around our community, and releasing butterflies (hopefully they will be ready).
These easy succulent dirt cups were the perfect treat to end the day! You can make these with store bought pudding cups or make chocolate pudding pudding mix. Dirt cups are traditionally made with gummy worms but I saw these cute succulent molds the other day and knew they would be a great addition!

These dirt succulent dirt cups were such a hit I think they will become an annual Earth Day tradition at our house!
They would also be super cute for a baby shower or bridal shower dessert!
