On a rainy afternoon earlier in the week, I went to Pinterest for a craft idea to entertain us. My son was very excited when I said “candy corn.” I quickly explained it was an art project and that I didn’t have any of the actual candy. I have a feeling it will find our cart during our next grocery trip… That said, he loved this simple craft I found on Mamas Like Me blog.
I hand sketched the outline of a candy corn using a white crayon. Then wrote each color name in its section using a crayon of the same color (ie, I wrote ‘yellow’ using a yellow crayon).
Next, I gave him a small bottle of glue and pieces of white, yellow & orange construction paper. Together we worked on the glue (our gluestick had dried up and this was his first time using a bottle of glue). He carefully placed each colored piece on his own.
He was very proud of his finished project and showed it off to his dad when he came home from work. Then hung it on the fridge for everyone to see. 🙂
