The daddy in our family is a lover of all things sweet. Candy is his specialty. That’s why, when my 13 year old daughter ran across a card like the one I’m going to show you today, she decided our family was most definitely going to make this for their dad!
Have you heard the Chris August song called, “I Love Candy”? We think it was written just for my husband, their dad! Here’s a youtube video of it, in case you’ve not heard it. Pretty funny stuff….unless of course you’re opposed to processed sugar. 😉 Then, you may be disgusted by it!
So anyway, back on track. My daughter figured out exactly what she wanted it to say, made a list of all the candy that she thought would be perfect for this card and then I set out to find it all. That was difficult. Walmart had most of it, but there were 3 I had to get from Walgreens and one other that only the grocery store had.
We realized midway through that we needed ore room on our card…so we went out and bought another piece of poster board.
Here’s what our card says:
Here’s a list of the candy, just in case you want to copy this exactly:
- 100 Grand
- Extra Gum
- Kit Kat
- Hot Tamales
- Milky Way
- York Peppermint Patties
- Almond Joy
- Reese’s Pieces
And here’s the final product.
The toddler was thinking about yanking some of that candy off and having it for himself. Silly boy!
