- spatial reasoning- using the candies that they have, talk about which pieces will fit on which parts of the letter, without veering too far off the line.
- themes- by color, size, type of candy, (one letter all chocolate, one letter all hard candy) etc.
- patterns- tootsie roll, hershey kiss, tootsie roll, hershey kiss.
- textures- hard vs soft, bumpy vs smooth.
This is such a fun way to use up all that unwanted Halloween candy… Now I just have to figure out how to keep myself from nibbling at my children’s masterpieces after they’ve gone to bed! Thanks for the great activity and ideas for expanding on it, Kaley.
