In each post, we try to list optimal age ranges for the activity, but you must judge for yourself if it is appropriate for your child.

  • String licorice

  • Stick pretzels

  • Bell shaped chocolate

  • M&Ms or other round candy for wheels

  • Candy for decorating the train

  • Candy canes for connecting train cars

  • Rectangle piece of chocolate


  1. Spread frosting on foil

  2. Lay licorice and foil down for the train tracks

  3. Break the candy bar up into three pieces

  4. Connect the candy bar pieces with broken candy cane pieces

  5. Add wheels and other candy to the train, sticking it to the train using frosting

  6. Put rectangle piece on top of the front piece of the train (the engine)

  7. Put the bell-shaped chocolate upside down on top of the rectangle piece
