Fall Corn Craft~ Easy Thanksgiving Snacks
Here is a fun craft to make for the kids to celebrate Thanksgiving! Who doesn’t love an excuse to eat Reese’s Pieces?!
You will need
- Reese’s Pieces candy
- Snack size Ziploc bags
- Brown paper lunch bags
- Twine or ribbon
Begin by filling your snack bags with Reese’s Pieces. When they are full, tape the “closure down to the bottom of the bag. For the top of your ear of corn, you will want to tape the closure at an angle to prevent it from showing. If it isn’t completely smooth underneath, that is okay, it won’t show other then the very top.
Grab one brown paper lunch bag. Open it up and cut down the side seams to cut in half. Cut off the bottom.
You should end up with two equal pieces. At the top of each of these cut 3 lines about 2-3 inches down. Now you are going to want to take each of those 3 sections and give them a slightly pointy look. Just trim the sides of them so they resemble a corn husk, not so much a brown paper bag.
Take your baggie of Reese’s pieces and place them in the center. Make sure your corn husks are a little taller then your baggie, but not a huge difference. Bunch up the brown paper bag at the base of your snack bag and secure together with a piece of twine or ribbon when you have it positioned the way you want. You should have quite a bit of brown bag hanging over the bottom, that is okay. We are going to trim it off once your bags are tied together.
There you have it! An easy and fun way to celebrate the season!
