Nothing screams Spring like a larger-than-life floral arrangement — especially if it's made from fresh, seasonal ingredients. From fruit petals to vegetable stems, there are plenty of ways to turn your child's favorite foods into a beautiful (and edible) bouquet. The best part: you don't need a green thumb or any fancy knife skills. These easy-to-make flower-shaped treats are the perfect way to celebrate the season and feed your little one.
