Candy Corn

Looking for a fun Halloween Project?
 Who doesn’t love Candy Corn?

I don’t do a whole lot of holiday projects in my classroom, but our school gets so into Halloween I could hardly resist the chance to do something spooky and sweet with my 1st graders.

Here’s all you need.

First we made a basic candy corn.

With a few folds, a glue stick, and just a few more pieces of construction paper, we were able to turn our plain candy corn into a candy corn book.

We discusses facial expressions and brainstormed eye and mouth shapes 
to show a wide range of emotions.

Students chose 2 emotions, but you could definitely do both sides and show 4 different expressions.

After they were finished students made up stories to share what happened to the candy corn to make it go from one face to the next.
