Magic Beans

I gave my boys each 5 "magic beans" to plant in the yard.  We dug a small hole and put them in and patted the dirt down.  The sprinklers watered the beans while we were asleep and the next morning....
 a lollipop had grown.
My boys were so excited.  I think my 6 year old is starting to get to smart for my sneaky games.  He asked how the beans had grown a wrapper on the sucker.  Luckily my quick response of "It is like an orange grows a peel that we don't eat." satisfied his curiosity.
