Create art inspired by your tongue! Celebrate all your wonderful tongue taste buds with a giant paper tongue project -- you'll even get to decorate it with actual pieces of candy!

What You Need:

  • White construction paper
  • Pink Construction paper
  • Markers
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • White glue
  • Assorted candies or snacks

What You Do:

  1. Use markers to draw a giant open mouth on the white construction paper. Include the lips and the teeth, but make sure you leave out the tongue!
  2. Take your pencil and draw a tongue on the pink construction paper. Make your tongue fill up the entire piece of paper. The bigger the tongue, the more treats it can hold!
  3. Cut the tongue out and glue it in place in the mouth.
  4. Take out your treats and arrange them on the huge pink tongue. One at a time, carefully glue the treats to the paper.
  5. Sit back and admire your tongue art as you eat your leftover candies and snacks!
