We loved making our Candy Corn Tree because it is FUN and FESTIVE and the kids loved having a few bites here and there (make it with some of these fall treats!) This craft is so easy and it has some really great lessons to teach your kids! (counting, dividing in the early stages, cause and effect, helps with fine motor skills, subtracting, awareness, science & more…)
I will include affiliate links below to find the materials, etc…
This is a simple activity that your kids will really like… It’s easy, fun and there are NO particular directions, so you can’t get it wrong. I like activities like that. 🙂
What you need:
VaseBranchesLow-Temperature Glue GunMini Glue SticksCandy Corn
Let your kids gather some branches from your back yard or a local wooded area.
PRO TIP–>> Have your vase or mason jar ready first, so that you know how big you want your branches to be.
While they are out there, don’t rush them… just let them explore! It’s part of welcoming fall.
Take your low-temperature glue gun and help your kids put glue on the candy corn.
TIP–>> If you have a high-temperture glue gun, you will want to help them with this part, to avoid any burns.
Hold the candy corn on the branch for 10 seconds.
TIP–>> I had the kids count to 10 each time
That’s it! The kids love it & they had a blast! If you are looking for more fun fall activities, use your leftover branches for this little math lesson for your preschoolers.
