Candy Corn Paper Art

Today, we continued making Halloween themed art by making using paper to make a candy corn picture! Mr. Not so Crafty is not a candy corn fan, but I am, and it makes for some cute art!

Materials Needed

  • Orange, yellow, black, and white construction paper
  • Glue
  • A marker
  • Scissors

I started by cutting out squares from the orange, yellow, and white paper. I cut about half a sheet of paper worth for each color. Make the squares big enough that your little one can grasp them to glue them down. The younger the toddler, the bigger the squares will need to be.


Next, I drew a candy corn shape on the black paper.


Next, I put glue on one section at a time and let my toddler glue the paper on one piece at a time. This helps with fine motor skills. Before we started each section, I named the color. If you’re child already has a grip on their colors, ask them to tell you what color they are putting on!



The finished result is a cute candy corn. I know it is a little more adult directed than most of our normal activities, but it is great fine motor skill and language skill practice.


To continue on with the Halloween fun into bedtime, we read the book Halloween Night by Marjorie Dennis Murray . It is a great story, but the pictures may be a little scary for some children. For more Halloween art fun, try our Open Ended Shape Witch.
