Candy Corn Coloring and Craft Activity

Here is a fun and easy craft to make with kids this month! :)

Candy Corn Craft

Candy Corn People are so cute!!!!! All you need to make some with the kids are some crayons, scissors, glue, black (or another color) construction paper, and my FREE Template.

  • First have the kids color the candy corn images.
  • Next help them cut out each image or do this yourself with younger kids.
  • Cut 4 thin black construction paper strips for the arms and legs.
  • Have the kids fold each strip with an accordion fold.
  • Have the kids glue the arms and legs to the body and the hands and feet to the arms and legs.
  • Then the kids can make eyes and a mouth with a crayon, pencil, or marker.

If you don't have time to make the candy corn people, children can use the template as a simple coloring sheet.

Another fun way to make the candy corn people is to print the images on cardstock (heavier paper) and have the kids color the images with colorful glitter glue sticks.

You can find the free template at my website. Just click the link below.

Also, look for some great Autumn and Halloween books at the library to read with the kids this month! :)

Happy Autumn!

Spider Math, Science, Literacy, and Crafts

With the start of October almost here, lots of classes will be having fun learning about SPIDERS!
It's a great time of year to do science, math, literacy, and crafts with a spider theme.

I love making simple paper plate clocks with kids for ALL the holidays. It's simple, inexpensive, and gives kids needed practice with learning and practicing their telling time skills.

To make the clock with kids, you can start with a plain white paper plate clock and some paint or crayons to decorate the paper plate or buy some inexpensive decorated plates like the one in the picture above.
Add some numbers and 2 hands and the kids are all set for some fun math practice! The kids can write the numbers directly on the paper plate or they can write the numbers on small color coding self -adhesive labels. The hands can be made with construction paper or craft foam and fastened with a brass fastener.

If your students are in need of Addition practice, you can download my FREE Spider Addition with Doubles Matching Activity from my Teachers Pay Teachers Store. Just click on the picture below.

I love all of Miss Frizzle's adventures and these books are very popular with kids.! :) Reading The Magic School Bus Spins A Web is a great science and literacy activity for this time of year.

Free Multiplication Tables

Do your kids need to practice their multiplication facts?

If the kids are still on summer vacation or if they have already started back to school, I have you covered.

Here are 2 fun multiplication tables for the kids to fill in to strengthen their memorization of number facts.

Multiplication Table - Summer Theme
Multiplication Table - Back to School
Repeated exposure to basic number facts helps students' brains develop a "memory relationship" with the number facts. 

Working with number tables helps children develop Fluency with basic number facts and observe Patterns in numbers.

You can save or download these worksheets from my Free Worksheets page on my website.
Just click on the link below.


Have a wonderful weekend!
