Tissue Paper Candy Corn

At Fundanoodle, we always believe learning should be fun.   And what’s more fun than Halloween?  As we get nearer and nearer to “All Hallow’s Eve,” your children will enjoy express themselves with this adorable candy corn craft.  And you’ll be able to keep them entertained while helping develop essential fine motor skills.

Supplies
Construction paper (white, orange or yellow) cut in large, candy-corn shaped triangles (older kids can cut out the shapes themselves)*

Marker or crayon (any color)

Orange, yellow, and white tissue paper

Glue stick

Instructions

1.    Use marker or crayon to draw “lines” on the construction paper candy corn shapes, dividing them into thirds.


2.      Rip tissue paper into rough squares (about 1”)


3.    If desired, roll tissue paper squares into balls.

4.    Use glue stick to adhere yellow tissue paper squares or balls to the “bottom” section of each candy corn shape.


5.      Use glue stick to adhere orange tissue paper squares or balls to “middle” section of each candy corn shape.
6.    Use glue stick to adhere white tissue paper squares or balls to the “top” section of each candy corn shape.

More “corny” fun

Allow children with well-developed fine motor skills to cut out the candy corn shapes themselves.  (Remember, I Can Cut! by Fundanoodle is a great way to help little hands – whether right-handed or left-handed – learn to use scissors.)

Before decorating with tissue paper, have older children write the appropriate color (“white,” “orange” or “yellow”) on the construction paper shapes.  Or have them write their favorite “Halloween” word (“scary,” “pumpkin,” “candy,” etc.) on the back of each shape.
