M&M Wreath

Looking for an excuse to buy those Christmas Colored M&M's?  I thought it would be fun to create a Christmas themed M&M sorting project for my daughter.

First, she separated the colors (I didn't realize that there were two shades of green in the mix but she didn't seem to notice). 

I color coded the circles on the wreath so that she would know where to place the M&M's.

This project took a little longer than I thought it would, perhaps because there were plenty of extra M&M's to eat!  I've made the wreath template available for your use here at Scribd.

You can also download a smaller version of this M&M Wreath activity HERE.

  1. That sure is a LOT of m&ms! I like how this activity also teachers the kids to color sort :) We also made a Christmas activity using M&M's, check it out:

  2. I like how this wreath came out. It's a great candy project. I liked your mini wreaths as well. This was one of my favorite posts for the week and I've linked up to it here:

  3. I love how the wreath came out, beautiful Did you glue them onto the paper or just placed them there? I just imagine my kids knocking it over as they are about to finish. Do you know of any eatable glue?

  4. Polwig -

    We just placed the M&Ms on the paper - but I wouldn't see any problem with using frosting/icing as glue (just as you would to hold a gingerbread house together). I've heard that Royal Icing works great. If you do go this route - I'd suggest printing on cardstock.

  5. Love this, thanks for sharing the template! :)

  6. love this idea! I'm going to try it with my daughter. Thanks!
