This may by far be my strangest post yet, but indulge me: Monkey loves carnivorous plants.  Fascinated by them.  As a result, we all know about not just venus fly traps but also pitcher plants, waterwheels, and sundews.

And so, like any good mother, I try to feed my son’s interests (sorry, couldn’t help it!) plus inject a little fun into the whole proceedings.

Thus, our carnivorous plants food art – enjoy!

Note the trigger hairs inside the trap itself.  Watch out, raisins!  You don’t want to touch those!

The hapless raisins, forever stilled by the plant’s evil jello walls

And finally, the innocent chocolate chips take a final slide down the slippery ice cream slopes to their doom.

How are you having fun with your kids lately??

  1. Fun, and yummy!!!

  2. Hilarious and tasty! I do believe that your little monkeys will always remember the attributes of carnivorous plants :^)

  3. Can I ask how you did the jello pitcher plants in the mugs? Did you just do the jello and then remove the inner part leaving some on the walls? I have a nephew that loves carnivorous plants (especially the pitcher plants!) and is going to be celebrating his birthday at my house during Thanksgiving and wanted a carnivorous plant party! Thanks!

    • First of all, what a cool theme for a party!! I’d love to hear how it turns out!! Actually I poured the jello into the mugs then after it started to set I put a smaller cup inside. (I waited until it had set a little so it didn’t sink all the way to the bottom). I’m sure just scooping it out would work too! Good luck!
