DIY Family Project: Woodland Candy Cups

By JustMommies

These delightful little candy cups are the perfect fall project to work on with kids. You can collect the leaves on a nature walk together and them come home and make them into candy cups! They can be used as teacher's gifts, party favors or to hand out to your trick or treaters. It's simple and easy and kids can sit right alongside and help out.

You will need:

Small cups
6-7 maple leaves per cup
Double sided tape
Raffia
Nature-themed candy (we used marshmallow mushrooms mixed with chocolate and caramel candies.
 
 
 
Step #1: Collect maple leaves that have just fallen. Make sure they are not yet crisp. (mom + child)
Step #2: Cut pieces of double-sided table and have your child stick them around the outside of the cup.
Step #4: Stick the leaves on facing horizontally around the cup. Overlap them. Kids can do this part.
Step #5: Have child hold the cup while mom ties raffia around to secure the leaves.
Step #6: Gather the excess portions of the leaves and glue or tape them to the bottom of the cup. (mom)
Step #7: Fill with candy!
