How to Assemble the Candy Corn Boxes
Assembling the boxes is very easy and only a few supplies are needed. Full color photo instructions are included that show how to assemble the boxes. I have created a video that demonstrates how to assemble the Vampire box. Click here to watch the video
How to Play
You could play this game during your Halloween party or introduce a new character to your class each day over a 1 week period leading up to Halloween. Your students would be excited to return to class each day and see the new character.
There are two options for the type of guessing game to play. The simplest game is to put different quantities of candy in each box and have students guess how many are in each box. The second option is to use different candy in each box and have students guess the type of candy and the quantity.
Hand out a recording sheet to each student. Have them examine each box and write down their guess. You can label each box with a number by writing it on the bottom of the box. Then students can record the number on their sheet .
To determine the winners, either check the recording sheets yourself or have students self check. Prior to announcing what is inside each box, It would be fun to sit with the class and ask them what they think is in each box and how they came to their conclusions.
If you have multiple winners for a box, determine how you will choose a winner. It could be a random draw or perhaps the students would share the candy in the box, and the box itself will go to a randomly chosen student. If no student guesses correctly or is close to the answer then the prize can be given by random draw.
This product is a PDF file with 22 printable pages. There are 9 unique candy corn character boxes in both color and black and white: a vampire, a witch, Frankenstein, a zombie, a mummy, a ghost, a monster in the tummy, a girl and a boy.
A game poster and black & white recording sheets are also included.
Set your printer to “Fit to Page” and then print out the pages that you want to use. Choose a heavy weight paper such as cardstock for the boxes.
