October 30th is National Candy Corn Day and who doesn’t love that stuff?!? I know I sure love the it!
Every week you can join my son and I as we bring you a fun, educational, and frugal kids craft! This week’s is centered around cutting and pasting which is a huge skill for pre-K and Kindergarten children.
Candy Corn Person:
White, yellow, and orange construction paper
crayons or markers
- Language Arts: 1. Create more than one candy corn and put letters or words on each one to spell words or create sentences. 2. Put one letter at the top of your candy corn shape and have your child brainstorm other words on the paper that begin with that letter. They can write or draw the words depending on their skill level.
- Math: 1. When cutting the paper to glue, cut shapes such as circles and triangles and have your child glue them down in a pattern on the candy corn. 2. Use real candy corn for estimation, addition, and subtraction problems. Have your child estimate how many candy corn pieces they can grab from a bag and then have them count them. 2 candy corn+4 candy corn=6 candy corn. 3. Use real candy corn to practice measurement (How many candy corn pieces long is your pencil? Your desk? Your book? etc).
- Science: After you have created your candy corn person, use them in a game of “Simon Say” to practice positional words (Put Candy Corn man under your foot, over your head, on your right hip, etc).
