Who didn’t love Candyland growing up? This was one of my favorite games and I remember playing it over and over. They have changed the board quite a bit over the years but most of the classics are still there.
For our Stay Home Saturday, we decided to recreate the board with candy! Charlotte loved it!
Pretty excited with how it turned out! Most of the treats were from Target or Aldi! We found a gingerbread cookie kit at Target to use as the pieces and a ginger bread house from Trader Joes for Queen Frostine’s castle!
First up was Plumpy. He was legit my favorite character growing up but he’s not on the new boards unfortunately! I used an ice-cream cone covered in frosting and some round sprinkles for the plums. The entire board is made of Starburst and I used airhead rainbow’s for the bridges!
My husband actually got really into this project and helped make so much! For Lord Licorice, he made a house out of graham crackers and covered it in chocolate and cherry twizzlers! Complete with a little brick path and a log pile! The marshmallows surrounding the houses are green trees that we found at Target!
Grandma Nutt’s house is another graham cracker creation but this one we covered in sliced almonds and surrounded with mini marshmallows. Grandma and her pet came from our Trader Joes Ginger Bread kit! Another Ice-Cream-Cone Tree too!
Mr. Mint’s station is literally a mint explosion with graham crackers covered in icing and mints, hot chocolate stirrers and candy canes!
Princess Lolly in the back is a field of pink Marshmallows covering a few Rice Krispie Treats and Some pretty pink lollipops from Target!
Jolly with an igloo made out of Rice Krispie Treats, covered in icing and DOTS Gumdrops! We made Gumdrop pass with some pink chocolate candy balls and added some marshmallow trees from Target for the forest!
These two making the grand finale was the sweetest! Charlotte loves a project! This ginger bread kit was perfect for Queen Frostine’s castle!
Basically a sprinkle explosion – we covered the ginger bread house with icing and colored sprinkles and then made some tree’s with ice cream cones, sanding sugar and icing! I added two ice cream cones on top of the house to make it look more like a castle!
