How to Make Sky-High Sweets

What You'll Need:

Leftover candy

Frosting

Cardboard

Butter knife

Graham crackers

After all the good stuff is gone, the rest of that Halloween candy ends up being thrown away. Well, find that old bag of Halloween candy, and open up a container of frosting.

Remove all the wrappers from the candy. Spread some frosting on a piece of cardboard so the candy will stick to it.

Create buildings, towers, and sculptures with your candy, using the frosting as glue and the cardboard as a base. See who can build the highest, the most creative, or the prettiest creations.

For even more fun, break out a box of graham crackers, and build houses, again using the frosting as glue. Use the candy to decorate the buildings. Every family member can contribute a building to your sweet city!
