Happy Halloween - Candy HeadbandsIf you’re anything like me, the idea of your kids consuming heaps of candy for Halloween is not exactly appetizing, so a bunch of us moms have gotten together to share ideas of candy fun that doesn’t involve eating. Yay!  By the end of the week we’ll have shared over thirty super fun candy art and exploration activities.  These candy headbands are simple and so cute.  My girls love wearing them.  I painted some wood shapes found at Michaels, glued on different candies with a glue gun and glued on a simple elastic headband from the pharmacy on the back.  D was so into it and they pics of her are seriously making me melt.  Speaking of which, I tried coating the candy with Elmer’s glue, which turned into a gigantic melty gooey mess.  Yuck, not what I was going for.  So unless anyone has any ideas, these will just last a a wear or two but the cuteness and holiday spirit is worth it.
