‘Tis the season for that super-sweet candy corn that everyone can agree reminds them of Halloween past, present, and, most likely, future! Besides eating all of the candy corn that may be lying around your home this week, you can also play some fun and simple games with these bright candy kernels.
Send the kids on a Candy Corn Hunt. You can do this by creating a path of candy corn that they must follow to a surprise at the end, or by hiding small bags of candy corn around your yard and sending the kids on a traditional hunt.
Fill a large pumpkin pail with candy corn and ask the kids to Guess the Number. Whoever guesses closest wins! Share the candy corn with everyone.
Create Candy Corn Artwork with heavy card stock, candy corn, and a glue stick. This may get messy, but it will be fun!
Make Candy Corn Strings, just like popcorn. Decorate the room and front doorway with them.
Make Homemade Candy Corn. This is a great idea for older children.
Make Candy Corn Krispie Treats by adding candy corn to this favorite recipe.
Play Candy Corn Foosball. Have two kids stand at either end of a large table. One child throws candy corn to the other end of the table, and the other child must block it from going through and making a goal. Use a solid cookie cutter for blocking (making sure it is one that will not scratch your table).
Make Candy Corn Sculptures, using frosting to hold the sculpture together. (Make sure to place paper on your table to keep the mess to a minimum.)
Finally, send guests home with Goody Bags of the sweet stuff!
It may be corny, but these ideas will keep it sweet, too!
