Toddler, Pre-K, K, 6 & Up
Even my toddler was able to do this craft, until his sister tried to sneak a candy and he realized he could eat what I told him to glue. After that, I had to take him away from the table because he had tasted the sweet treat and was no longer interested in the craft at hand. So, use your discretion--but if your toddler doesn't know what candy corn is, you may have fun doing this craft together.
For this craft you will need:
- Candy corn
- Paper plate (I used the desert sized ones)
- Hole punch
- Ribbon (or yarn or string)
Punch a hole in the top of the paper plate ring for use later.
Use a thick craft glue to glue the candy corn on. We used a gel glue and it made a HUGE mess! It worked, but it made a mess. You also want to avoid glue stick, because it won't work at all. When I try this craft again, I will definitely pull out the Aleen's craft glue.
Give your wreath at least 24 hours to dry completely before you attempt to hang it up.
Put a ribbon or string through the hole and hang your art work.
Mommy Tip: Place your child's freshly made wreath on wax paper or even a piece of construction paper. When the glue mixes with the candy, it creates a messy syrup that will not only make the project stick to a surface, but will also stain the top of a white microwave.
