This is a short set of activities to help children practice letter C, the colors yellow and orange with sweet candy corn.  This candy is very popular during the autumn season and Halloween holiday.  

The candy corn printable craft will help reinforce letter C in a few ways.  Both the words candy & corn feature letter C and a little surprise is that both template "legs" are letter C's.  Let's get started!  

If possible try to have some real candy corn available to sample during snack and for counting practice purposes.

Print the candy corn poster.
Tell the children they are going to have fun with candy!  Hurrah!  Start some dialogue - suggestions:

1.  What is your favorite types of candy -- make a list.
2.  What is your favorite holiday that includes eating and collecting candy from door-to-door?
3.  Have you ever tasted candy corn? Show the poster.  Ask them if they know what does a candy corn represent.  Discuss that a piece of candy corn is a representation of approximately the size of a whole kernel of corn, as if it fell off a ripe or dried ear of corn. Here is some basic information about candy corn.

Distribute one piece of candy corn to each child, have them taste it.  Note:  Ideally candy corn should be at room temperature so it is soft and easy to chew on.  Ask them to describe the flavors and the colors.
