Candy/Sweets Classroom Theme

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I want to do a candy/sweets/cupcakes classroom theme this year. I am going to create a hallway display that is either "Fourth Grade is Sweet!" or "A New Batch of Smart Cookies." I have some bulletin board border that looks like candy sprinkles and some that looks like frosting. One long board will be "Serving Up Sweet Success" and on it I will use Joanna Candler's idea for the math quiz progress charts of ice cream cones. When kids pass a certain quiz, they get a different colored ice cream cone. My newsletter is called "The Scoop."

Does anyone have any great ideas? Any cute puns for bulletin board titles, etc?

I was also considering this theme! Here's what I cam up with:

Golden Ticket reward system/ or classroom economy (Willy Wonka)
Beginning of the year activity: Lollipop Buddies. (Give everyone a dum dum and have the kid find another student with the same one and interview them)
Styrofoam balls wrapped in cellophane for decorations
"100 Grand" for a board displaying great work OR
"Smarties" for the same thing.
Mars Bars for science (bboard or center)
M&M= math and money (bboard or center)
Gumdrops bb= cardboard cutouts of gumdrops painted w/ kids' names on them and then add glitter. Title is "Look who's 'dropping' in for a good year.)
Candybar looking nametags
candyland reading center



I found these ideas mainly on here so I def. don't take credit!

Just FYI for your candy themed room. I saw some very cute candy border @ Dollar Tree today as well as a little door hanger and some kind of wall/door decoration. Had some type of ice cream banner thing too?? Not really sure but I know they had border and it was sooo very cute. Go check it out! Good luck with your room.

Your room sounds really cute. And you're really setting the bar high (get it, candy bar?). You could do some sort of pun with "mint" ("You're worth a mint to me.") and use those starlight mints (Walmart has both green and red for a buck for a small bag). And if there are no nut issues you could have "You are an (almond) joy to me," board.

Add a Milky Way to the Mars science. And, encourage them to be Nerds!

Thinking of the ice cream cones... You could use REAL cones (the flat-bottom cake style or even the waffle bowls) sprayed with shellac (or whatever -- I'm not crafty) for small containers.

I hope you don't get assigned a room of diabetics and obese kids... Could be awkward!

abcteach.com has printable candy bar wrappers that can be used as rewards. You may have to become a member, but they have a lot of great stuff, worth the money.

Thanks for sharing! I'd love to use this theme for my classroom, especially since my walls are painted chocolate brown!

I was looking in one of the mailbox books today and here are some ideas I found...

Our Fourth Graders are a treat! (or sweet treat)
Have a sweet year
__________'s Sweet Shop
You could make a candy jar with their names on the candy.
You could make a "kiss and/or hug" shape out of aluminum foil and put their names on the little flag coming out of them.
