Easy Kitchen Creation For Kids

A sweet festive treat: Candy Corn Crackle

Let's Get Crackin'!

Though candy corn may be a controversial and divisive candy, there is a piece of this treat for everyone!

While in our festive homeschool lesson all about candy corn, I was inspired to create not one, but two kitchen creations for us to try.

(To see our Candy Corn Cream Pies visit HERE!)

Besides candy corn's sweet taste and bright colors, there is a ton of learning that can be acquired and practiced, just by this seemingly simple little candy.

I am always pleasantly surprised at how the common everyday sort of items around us are packed full of information, history, science, and math. I love how each item we explore, however odd, reminds us that there is learning all around us- in everything we encounter.

Our Candy Corn lesson was going to be no exception!

I was thrilled while planning this fun-at-face value topic, which upon diving deeper, was about to lead us into studying geography, compounds, angles, and more!

With learning topics pointing themselves out, like the point of a candy corn, I knew an easy brain break was going to be necessary for my young learners.

So to tend to this, I gathered up some sweet ingredients, and planned for a kitchen creation that would treat their tummies, and keep them creative.

So grab your sweeties, and get crackin' on our Candy Corn Crackle recipe.
