These little old school candy trains have been a tradition in our house for years. The Girl Who Thinks She’s A Bird has been making them and gifting them to friends for as long as I can remember. I bet it’s a tradition she passes on to her kids.
Making the actual train is so simple and just requires a few pieces of candy and a glue gun. While kids can help out with this craft, I’d obviously not recommend you give your 2-year-old a hot glue gun and let him go to town. And there’s your disclaimer.
Check out the step by step instructions and you can build your very own candy train:
Start with a package of gum. I selected Clove gum because it was red.
Hot glue 1 roll of Lifesavers to the pack of gum letting the Lifesavers hang over 1 end of the gum.
Add 1 foiled Rolo.
Add 1 Hershey’s miniature candy to the top of the Rolo.
Add 1 upside down foiled Hershey’s Kiss.
Add 4 wrapped peppermint discs.
Viola! One candy train. How easy was that?
