If you have been following my blog for a while you know that I love using washi tape. We have not used it in a while and we have been having so much fun this Halloween with all the activities that I felt it was about time we did a fun craft using washi tape!
This is a fun and simple craft that my happy kindergartner loved making while I made dinner. Anything with washi tape is always a big hit with her. If you haven’t tried using washi tape you are in for a treat!
Here’s how to get started making Washi Tape Candy Corn.
On a sheet of black construction paper draw the three layer outline of a candy corn. Use the photo below for reference.
There are several ways you can have your little one cut the washi tape. You can either hold it for them.
This is best for new scissor users or if your scissors have trouble cutting items other than paper.
Or you can attach the white washi tape to the back of a chair or to a table and let your little one use the scissors to cut off pieces off.
Once your little one has cut a piece of white washi tape off have them stick it on to the top section of the candy corn.
I did not have all white washi tape so I used the one that had the most white in it.

Let them Stick it
For toddlers and preschoolers don’t worry about how or where they stick the washi tape.
As long as it gets inside the candy corn outline its completely fine!
Fine Motor Skills
This part of the activity is great for practicing those important scissor skills, something my happy four year old absolutely loves to do.
It is also a great way to work on strengthening those finger muscles!
