Materials You’ll Need

  • Old/hardened candy corn
  • Tempera paint
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Card stock paper or cardboard
  • Crayons
  • Paintbrush

How-To Steps

  1. Paint the candy corn. Leave some as is and group the rest into several different piles. Place a piece of wax paper or cardboard on your work surface. Pour one color of tempera paint onto the paper/board. Your child can place the candy corn in the paint and mix them around until they are coated. If this is too messy for your child, pour the paint and candy into a plastic baggie and shake to mix. Let the candy corn dry.
  2. Draw a simple design with shapes on the card stock or cardboard with the crayons. Think of this as your child making their own coloring page. They can draw a pumpkin, ghost, leaf or other Halloween/fall themed object.
  3. Cover one area of the drawing with glue. Squeeze a small puddle onto the paper and use the paint brush to spread it out.
  4. Press the colorful candy corns onto the glue, creating a Halloween mosaic.
  5. Repeat for other sections with other colors.
