candy design labs



Creating unique wearable candy jewelry is highly stimulating to a child’s imagination. The opportunity to explore their likes and dislikes when designing develops skills, and encourages creative choice and self expression. Assembling the each piece assists them in developing their planning and hand dexterity. By promoting children to express their imagination you present the opportunity to give them a small deceleration of self. By prompting children to talk about their creative choice, it aids in their language development as they are encouraged to find new ways to talk about their projects. Acquiring new descriptive and emotive vocabulary is a vital part of their learning to effectively express themselves—a skill that is fundamental in how well they interact with other people. A project that requires some degree of planning, such as making patterns from candy, choosing colors for a bracelet, or deciding how to make necklace, are all fantastic for helping children to develop their cognitive skills.

Over gummy bears and peach rings children design light-hearted fashion accessories where each design overflows with individuality and personal style.
