|My favorite was the "Weight-Lifting Almond Joy Man" (top right). Syd liked the "Graduation Dog" (bottom right). Maya liked them all. =)|
Provide toothpicks to help stick the pieces together and let them make whatever creature they can come up with.
Of course, they wanted to eat it, but my compromise was that they got to pick one that they could share after dinner. The rest went in the trash.
Candy that worked really well - Dots, Starburst, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (can't believe we had any of those left), Almond Joy (what kid likes Almond Joy anyway?)
Candy that didn't work so well - solid milk chocolate (i.e. Hershey's), candy corn (I was surprised by this), any of the "airy" candy (i.e. Kit Kat, Crunch, etc.)
This may become a new Halloween tradition - I'm just not going to let the candy taunt me for a week before we break out the Candy Creature activity again. Post-Halloween Day 3?
