Make this Fall Craft for Preschoolers while reading these Fun Books:

Step 1: Download and Print the Free Candy Corn Craft Template

Download the Free Candy Corn Template. You will be stapling the template to sheets of colored paper to cut out the shapes.

Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Preschool Halloween Craft Shapes

Print the candy corn template and staple to multiple sheets of colored paper before cutting.

Once you have the print outs, staple them to construction paper and cut out the shapes you need.

Note: If you want to make this Halloween craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.

Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Tip: While you’re cutting, if you cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left. 

Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!

Step 3: How to Assemble

The kids will just need to glue it all together and make it their own!

Preschool candy corn craft
  1. It’s best to glue from the bottom up. First, glue the yellow onto the orange and then the white onto the yellow.
  2. Personalize your candy corn with a face.
  3. Cut out the hands
  4. Cut pipe cleaner in half
  5. Tape pipe cleaners to back of craft
  6. Tape hands to pipe cleaners (arrange however you want)
  7. Don’t forget to put your name on the back.

And you’re finished!

This is a great craft for Fall and Halloween. And it’s easy enough for preschool, elementary, Scouts or just a fun craft at home idea.
