Halloween Crafts for Kids to Do Part 1 - Halloween Fun Size Candy People as seen on Martha Stewart

I think crafting brings our family closer together. We all enjoy working on an exciting new project especially holiday-themed crafts.
When I saw an episode of the Martha Stewart show with the cutest little girl helping Martha make Halloween candy people, I just knew we had to try it as a family.
All you need to do the project is:
lollipops for the heads,
boxed candies for the bodies,
and long skinny candies like tootsie rolls, twizzlers, or sweet-tarts for the arms & legs.
Everything is glued together with a low temp. melt hot glue gun.
On the show, they also used halloween stickers to stick onto the lollipops for faces...but I was lucky to find Halloween lollys with the faces on them.
First we attached the lollipop heads to the boxes by attaching the lollipop stick to the back of the boxes with hot glue. The kids picked out their arms & legs in mostly matching pairs... and we glued those to the sides & bottom of the boxes. After a few minutes, the glue was set.
It was such a cute, quick, & relatively cheap craft to do that I just wanted to share with y'all.
My girl took 20 of these 'candy people' to her school's Halloween party and they were a big hit with her friends.
