American Girl Doll Candy


So, with the Fourth Of July everyone is going to have a lot of candy. What better to do with the wrappers than turn them into doll candy?

You will need:

  • Marbles of assorted colors
  • Tootsie Rolls, Dum-Dums, and bubble gum
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue
  • Tiny (and I mean tiny) paper scraps

Start by taking your Dum-Dum sticks and cutting them to the appropriate length for a doll pop. Hot glue the marble to the top of the stick (if you don’t want to put a wrapper on your Dum-Dum, make the color of the marble different and skip the next two steps).



Cut a little off the top and sides of the wrapper so it fits on the lollipop you have just made. Wrap it around the marble.



Now you have a doll lollipop!

Next are the gum and Tootsie Roll.

Take the wrapper from the gum and cut off the part of the wrapper that was twisted to hold the gum inside. (Save the part you cut off!!!) Your wrapper should look something like this:




Take the paper scraps (and the part you cut off in the previous step) and stuff them in the middle of the gum wrapper.



Twist the sides closed.

Your gum will look like this:




Next, the Tootsie Roll.

Lay the wrapper flat on the ground, cut the writing and a thin strip from the bottom off.(save those pieces!)


Follow the same steps as the Doll bubble gum, where you put the paper scraps in the middle and twist the sides to close it. Your Tootsie Roll should look like this.



You now have doll candy! Make lots of it and have a doll candy store!

Happy Fourth and thank you for reading! Please leave questions and comments below.

How To Make a Candy Story

M&M’s, Hershey Bars, Jolly Ranchers, Almond Joy, Milky Way

This is a fun game for any party!

Start by putting pieces of candy on a table like M&M’s, Hershey Bars, Jolly Ranchers, Almond Joy, Milky Way, etc. Then group people into groups. I suggest grouping them into groups of 5 or 6. Then tell them to write a candy story using every single piece of candy you put on the table.

Give the people who had the winning story a prize. I suggest the candy on the table as the prize. Here is the story I wrote:

One day a lady named M&M decided to visit her friend Hershey. Hershey suggested they go visit Jolly Rancher.

On their way to Jolly Rancher’s house, they bumped into their friend, Reese’s Pieces, who said, “ouch!”

“Sorry, Reese’s Pieces,” said M&M.

“Where are you going?” asked Reese’s Pieces.

“We are going to Jolly Rancher’s house,” said Hershey.

“Can I come too,” asked Reese’s Pieces?

“Of course you can; you are his best friend,” said M&M.

When the three friend’s got there, Jolly Rancher was not happy, and they couldn’t cheer him up. So, Hershey suggested they go to Milky Way Pond.

Milky Way Pond is Jolly Rancher’s favorite place,” said Hershey.

At Milky Way pond they had an Almond Joy of a time, especially Jolly Rancher.
