Candy Man Heart- valentine's day craft and The Kid's Co-op
We are always trying out new and old crafts over here.  It is something that me and the kids enjoy doing together.  For each new holiday that comes up we spend time crafting and then use them to decorate the house.  We did a jelly bean Easter Egg last year that was a lot of fun and I wanted to find a way to use candy for Valentine’s Day coming up.  I came up with a candy man heart. ( You can make this a candy lady heart if you wish).  My son and I had fun making him and he turned out cute too.

What I used:  Cardboard, construction paper, yarn, hole punch, scissors, suction cup, glue stick, hot glue gun, pipe cleaner, and candy(we used candy corns and skittle but you can use whatever you like).

What to do:  Cut out a heart shape with the paper and cardboard.  I chose to add cardboard because our East Egg craft last year was too heavy for the paper.  The cardboard helps give the paper strength.  Add a hole at the top of the heart to tie yarn through.  This way you can hang the candy man heart up.  My son glued the paper to the cardboard with a glue stick.  Then I helped him use the hot glue gun to glue the candy on.  You probably could use plain glue to glue on the candy but I didn’t want to wait for the glue to dry.  Now we add the pipe cleaners as arms and legs.  We hot glued those too.  Now we had our candy man heart.

We had fun adding the candy.  I had to go back for a few more because what fun is it crafting with candy if you can’t taste them.  Once the candy man heart was ready we hung him up on the window with our suction cup.  My son was so proud of his candy man heart.  He told me he was “cute”.  We hope you too may make one to be proud of and have fun while making it.
