What You Need:

  • Construction paper
  • Mini stapler
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Lightweight treats
  • Double-sided tape

What You Do:

  1. Help your child make a large cone by taking a full sheet of construction paper and twirling it inward from one corner. Once a cone shape is accomplished, ask him to staple it in place. Cut off the excess paper.
  2. Cut a sheet of paper in half and repeat step 1 to make a smaller cone.
  3. Ask him to place a couple of strips of double stick tape on the inside of the smaller cone and gently fit it over the first cone shape. Then, press the two cones together.
  4. Have him add a third cone if he's so inclined.
  5. Lay a sheet of construction paper on the table and show your child how to measure a 1.5" x 11.5" strip of paper using a ruler and a pencil. Ask him to cut along the line you marked to create a handle.
  6. Help him staple the handle to the inside of the candy bag on opposite sides of the cone.
  7. Allow him to fill the candy bag with any type of lightweight treats he wants!
