Candy Corn

This is a really simple craft that even the little ones can enjoy. All they have to do is rip,scrunch up and stick onto the paper. With a little bit of adult supervision they can make a Halloween decoration and have fun.
Materials needed--

  • Card
  • Glue
  • Yellow, Orange and white tissue paper
  • Cut a triangle from card. Round the edges if you like to make it into a candy corn shape.
  • Rip the tissue paper into pieces and scrunch into small balls.
  • Glue the tissue paper to the triangle to make stripes, using our photo (or real candy corn!) for inspiration.
Books related to our project--

Biscuit Visits the Pumpkin Patch 

by Alyssa Satin Capucilli
"Biscuit goes everywhere, does everything and makes just a touch of mischief wherever he goes (goodheartedly I might add). This is another splendidly illustrated book that shows the little retriever puppy following his little girl around the pumpkin patch in search of that perfect harvest pumpkin. The story is simple and cute (lots of woofs woofs from Biscuit) and the book itself is in a heavy board quality. My kids (2 and 3 1/2) thoroughly enjoy this one and ask for it frequently"~reviewed on Amazon To Purchase

The ABC's of Halloween

by Patti Reeder Eubanks
"My two-year-old LOVES this book! They read it at our local bookstore storytime, and he insisted to carrying it through the whole store for the trick-or-treat parade, and I had to buy it! He's insisted that we read it several times a day ever since we got it home. The pictures are delightful and the creative words will introduce your toddler or preschooler to lots of vocabulary as they enjoy picking out the letters in all the pumpkins. Highly recommended"~reviewed on Amazon
