Supplies Needed; Waffle cone, fall candy, microwave, ribbon or twist tie, and cellophane.
Directions; Dip the ends of the cones in a cup of water, about an inch. Then sprinkle a few drops inside the cone. Too much water will make the cone. Then microwave the cone for 30 seconds on high. As soon as it was done, carefully wrapped the end around a thick pencil and hold it for a few seconds until it held its shape. Fill the cone with candy. Once the cone is filled with candy, wrap a small square of cellophane, about 3x3 inches around the end and secured it with a piece of ribbon or a gold pipe cleaner and tie/twist into a bow.
Supplies Needed; Clear Rubber Glove (be conscientious of latex allergies and use only non-powder coated), Fruit Loops, mini marshmallows, yellow construction paper, red construction paper, orange construction paper, two wiggly eyes, glue, scissors, and a rubber band.
Directions; Fill fingers of the glove with colored fruit loops. Fill the rest of the glove with mini marshmallows. Tie off the bottom of the glove with the rubber band, and cut off any excess glove. Cut out feet from the orange construction paper, a beak from the yellow construction paper, and a gobbler from the red construction paper (see below). Glue on eyes, gobbler, beak and feet. Allow to dry.
Supplies Needed; Turkey print out (see below), crayons or markers, and 20 fall colored candies. For our candies we used peanut butter m&m's, but you can easily substitute for candy corn, skittles, gummy bears, raisins or even grapes.
Instructions; Have children color turkey as desired. give them 20 candies and instruct them to place them in the circles (as shown below). For older children, you can ask them to create specific patterns or to add/subtract candies as a math integration activity.
