Fun with food, one thing Mom was wrong about!

Mom always said it was never okay to play with my food,
but we've found some cases where it just makes sense!
Here are some fun ideas to keep your kids learning this summer.

Spelling your name (and other words) just got SO much more fun when you're spelling in candy. You can also use pieces to create shapes, build scenes from favorite books (Tootsie Roll Canoe anyone?) or make a map of the USA.

Use smaller candies such as Runts or Sweetarts to practice counting and simple mathematics.
These candies are also perfect for creating custom picture frames or artwork with some Elmer's glue wooden frames or construction paper.
