Candy Corn!


This idea came from one of our readers Carrie who did this adorable craft with her young daughter , she sent it to me and I knew I wanted to save it for Halloween week! It’s so easy and the results are so cute! I’ll be making this with my little man today!

  1. Gather your materials. You will need 5 pieces of paper in light orange , white, yellow, darker orange and black , glue and a marker.
  2. I cut out the shape of candy corn on a light orange piece of paper and drew the 3 lines of candy corn.
  3. I tore up a bunch of pieces of white, yellow and orange paper
  4. Then she helped me sort them and put them where they go on the candy corn (yellow on the bottom, orange in the middle, white on the top). Since she’s younger (20 months) I had them mostly sorted for her and she could glue them on but for older kids you could just mix them all together.
  5. Voila a cute and easy Halloween Treat!

This activity could be finished up with counting a few pieces of candy corn— and then eating it!

Thank you so much Carrie for this awesome craft!

The Cutest Pumpkin!

When Amelia and her mommy Missy checked out our Halloween projects none quite fit with the supplies in their house, so they used the ghost collage idea but made it into the cutest pumpkin ever. Ripped orange paper and a glue stick were huge hits with this adorable 2 year old!

Letter of The Week X x !

X-ray
X

I thought this x-ray x would be a fun activity to start the week of Halloween, but but you can omit the orange paper and do the craft any time of year . Older children should be encouraged to draw and cut out the bones themselves, in which case regular old construction should be used in place of the foam sheets.
  1. Gather your materials. You will need one orange and one black piece of construction paper, 2 sheets of white foam , a pen, scissors, glue and crayons. We are using all the metalics , white and black crayons, just to stay with a Halloween theme.
  2. Have your child color the 2 pieces of paper, although it looks like fantastic squiggles, and they are fantastic, my son informed me that there were cats and a witch on his paper.
  3. Although we simply colored another option would be to use fun Halloween stickers .
  4. While your child does that you can draw a bone shape on one sheet of foam, and layer it with the 2nd and cut out.
  5. Trim the black piece of paper into a square and glue on the orange paper.
  6. Make a X with glue.
  7. Add the bones!
