Candy Airplanes Big Hit as Treat for Goody Bag
Small Hersey chocolate bars (instead of gum)
Gummy Lifesavers (instead of hard mint Lifesavers)
Small rubber bands
Place rubber band between two gummy Lifesavers and keep your fingers in the rubber bands during the next steps. It makes it easier to put the plane together.
Fit the Smartie between the two Lifesavers "wheels."
Then loop one side of the rubber band over the Hersey bar (keep your one finger/thumb in the other side of the rubber band so to hold it in place). Then loop the other side around the chocolate bar.
This is what it looks like from the underneath side of the plane.
They are easy to make with the kids, and they are a big hit when the goody bags are opened. The best part is it is not another throw away item tossed into the goody bag. The kids actually eat them.
