Fun and Simple Candy Corn Craft

While going through Pinterest looking for craft inspirations, I found this simple candy corn craft from An Indiana Mom.

I just made some minor tweeks to her original idea and E1, E2, and E3 were ready to decorate their own candy corn. The tweeks I made was instead of doing it on white paper, I changed it to colored construction paper that was not yellow or orange. That way the kids could also fill in the white part with paper pieces as well.

So you first draw a candy corn shape onto colored construction paper.
Then cut little pieces of white, yellow, and orange construction paper and put them into small cups or containers.
Take out some glue sticks and let the kids at it.  Like the paper pumpkin craft I also made one to show the kids what they were supposed to do.

It was interesting to see E1 and E2 carefully place one piece of cut paper at a time and E3 just try to slap on a whole bunch thinking they would all stick. Of course I had to explain and show her that she needed to take her time to place each piece of paper on in order for them to stick. But crafting is not so much her thing, so she just wanted to get it over with I think, haha!

Talking of candy corn, I like them but can't say I'm a big fan of them, anyone out there that loves candy corn? I personally love anything that has chocolate and peanut butter, if it is dark chocolate then even better! What is your favorite Halloween candy?



  1. This is a cute idea. I bet you could even add in some math concepts in here. Like counting and then adding the 2 colors together. I'm with you, candy corn is okay, but chocolate is even better!

    1. Good idea to add counting to the activity!

  2. Cute mosaic craft! And funny about E3 crafting not being her thing!! What difference in personality huh! I don't like candy corn either. It's just sugar. I love anything crunchy and chocolate. Dark chocolate, oh yes!

    1. It is really interesting that we are now starting to see their individual interests. Ummm...dark chocolate!
