We had a TON of fun doing activities this week with our leftover Halloween candy.
1. We sorted Smarties by color.
2. We made Candy Art.
3. We made a Cell Phone using Smarties.
4. We found out which candy floats.
Today we played a simple game by tossing the candy into a pumpkin bucket. (I still haven't put away all of our Halloween decorations:)
I found some other blogs with great ideas of what to do with leftover Halloween candy. Check them out.

In researching ideas of what to do with our leftover Halloween candy, I came across TONS of fun crafts, activities, and science projects to do using food. Since D had so much fun with all of the candy projects, I have decided that we need to spend more time playing with our food. Every Tuesday I am going to post a craft, activity, or science project that we did the week before with a different type of food. For my own planning, organizational, and shopping purposes, I am going to pick a theme for each week. Feel free to join in with the same theme or just let me know what you did during the week to play with your food. :)
