Make Halloween Lollipops with the kids. Gather 'gummy' candies including gumdrops. Push one gumdrop 2/3rds of the way down on your craft sticks to make a stopping point for the rest of your candies. Add assorted candies until you are within 1/2 inch of the top of the craft stick. Push another gum drop on to secure your candies on the stick. You could also form a rice Krispy ball or popcorn ball around the stick instead of the candy. The kids will have a ball helping make these.
Wrap with clear wrap from the top to the bottom and tie with 8 inch pieces of your curling ribbon, curl with the edge of your scissors. You could attach Halloween stickers to the clear wrap for a fun effect. I suggest you avoid using any chocolate or peanut products because of allergies in children.
