Great Halloween Decorations: Mummy Candy Holders
Mummy Candy Holders
There’s always candy around at Halloween. Teachers bring in candy, kids bring candy from home and parents are always bringing in some kind of candy for snacks. Let the kids make some mummy candy holders to place in the classroom. It will keep their candy together and also give you a little more control over how much candy each child eats.
Start with small coffee cans. Be sure there are no sharp edges and that the can is clean and dry. Other supplies needed are white construction paper, gauze, glue, scissors and crayons.
Place the white construction paper around the outside of the coffee can. Help with cutting the paper so it’s an exact fit to the can. Once the paper is cut place glue on the back and attach it to the can.
Attach the gauze from top to bottom of the can. Put a small amount of glue on the piece of gauze when you first start it and again on the end when the can is completely covered. This will keep the gauze from slipping when little hands grab the candy dish to get their piece of candy.
When those little drops of glue dry the kids can use the crayons to give their mummies some facial features. It can be just eyes peeping out or they can give them a mouth and nose too. Now you have a Halloween candy dish to hold all that scrumptious candy. If you sneak a piece that’s ok too, only the mummy will know and he’s not talking!
