While bake sales mostly focus on treats like cake, cookies, and other baked goods, candy is also a popular item. But instead of just reselling what you’ve purchased, add a little extra creativity by adapting the candy into candy creatures.
Using these printable candy creation templates, you can add some sweet treats to make these edible owls, butterflies, and caterpillars much more marketable. All you need are some colorful candy, a printer, and some glue. It’s so easy, you’re kids will want to help.
Tip: Spark your kids’ creativity and challenge them to give each edible creature a name!
Use colorful hard candies to really make your butterfly eye-catching! Attach a variety of candies to each of the wings, and then choose a consistent color for the body. Add a creative touch by giving your butterfly a face.
Attach a piece of candy for each link of the body, making sure not to cover the legs. Use a larger candy for the head, and finish it off with caramel candies for a tree branch so you’re caterpillar has something to walk on!
The eyes of the owl are its most prominent feature. Use big, round candies for the eyes, making them really stand out. Add a smaller, square candy for the nose, then caramels for the tree branch.
These candy creature templates are the perfect solution for when you’re short on time to make something for your next bake sale. Appropriate for children of all ages, your kids will appreciate being involved in the creation.
