Candy Corn craft learning opportunities

Fine Motor Skills

Once the pieces are all made they need to be strung up. Lacing the strong through the hole in each piece is great for practicing fine motor skills.


What colors are candy corn? This can be a fun way to practice colors with young toddlers. They, of course, may want to color their candy corn their own favorite colors!

Recognizing Patterns

The faces do follow a pattern! While young kids can’t spell yet they can work on recognizing the pattern and which face goes next. You can also print out or show them the image below of the completed banner and have them match up the letters or the pattern for the entire banner.
