  • Creating with Candy

    Hi! It’s me, Sprinkles! I am Nickey’s pet unicorn, and the intern here at, Colors Are Magic.

    Today I want to talk about…CANDY! I am sure that you have been seeing more of it than you wish to around your house due to Valentine’s Day… and guess what? Easter is just around the corner! So I thought it would be great to put together a little post about some fun ways you can use up that candy with your kids without having to consume all of it. Don’t be embarrassed, you’re not the only parent who sneaks a taste of their kid’s candy when they are sleeping. I know many of them!

  • Laffy Taffy Finger Paints

    I am not going to lie… I love banana Laffy Taffy. It’s delicious… and smells amazing. It’s even my favorite color… yellow. So while walking up and down the Valentine’s aisle,  with Sprinkles, I decided to pick up a bag of Laffy Taffy. While painting Sprinkle’s hooves and munching on a piece, I got an idea. Why not try making finger paints out of them? Seriously, why not? We have been painting with a lot of candy lately. It’s been better for our teeth and adds more fun colors to hang on our refrigerator.

    They turned out great and smelled amazing. If you would like to try creating with your candy instead of eating it, you should really try out this recipe!
