How to Make the Candy Corn Craft:

I printed my candy corn image out on cardstock but regular paper should be fine.

Set your crafting station up by tearing up little pieces of each color of paper. This is a part that kids like to help with.

Since my little gal is three she needed a picture of a candy corn to look at so she knew where to put her colors. (I’m sure there is some fancy name for the skill to recreate an image she’s looking at.) We recruited a neighbor-friend to come help us craft.

Both this three year old and five year old enjoyed the project.

Can you guess which one belongs to the three year old and which one belongs to the five year old? Bet you can’t…

Use Fabric Scraps Instead

Lastly, if you want to get real crazy, you can do the same thing with fabric scraps instead of paper. Not everyone has fabric scraps laying around but if you do, this is a great way to use some up!

    Hello there. Love, love, love your site.

    I’m a nanny of a 3 yr old and me and my little have tried several of these projects.

    They were fun, easy and she absolutely adored them.
