There I was with my kids enjoying the movie Wreck-It Ralph when I released what a perfect idea it would be to make a car based on the fun candy car that Vanellope (The Glitch) raced with!
Her car was made up with the gummy worm wheels, sprinkles, chocolate syrup, gumdrops, cookies and all other yummy things. I thought how fun it would be to make one. Enter Halloween candy!
Yep, and surprisingly my daughter had more then I thought! I don't know how she managed to have so much. When it was candy time I clearly asked her brother for candy and not her. We will remedy this situation now.
I let the kids grab whatever they wanted to use to make their car. My daughter grabbed her one and only Rice Krispy treat. My son had to take more time and be creative with his. I also joined in the fun with my own idea.
My daughter had a head start on her car. It was coming out great. She had wheels, a driver, steering wheel.
My son decided he was making a car boat! He was the one guilty of the most candy consumption during this process but, definitely the one with the biggest imagination!
After all my suggestions I had to jump into the fun too. I had so many endless wheel suggestions but changed it up based on limited options.
We all used a variety of candy to assemble our cars! Tootsie Rolls, Gobstoppers, candy bars, lifesavers, gummy bears, Dots, Nerds and more
Even though my son's surrounded his boat with water.
We had a race!
I applaud my kids for the good time they gave me. They had fun, helped each other with suggestions for parts and there was no arguing!
The race was a three way tie but, our bellies won in the end!
When we were making these I thought what a fun idea for a birthday party activity or movie theme activity!
I'm not going to assume everyone else still has Halloween candy but, do you have Christmas candy left?
