For some reason, my daughter kept requesting to do a "gum ball craft". I wasn't really sure what she had in mind, but this is what I came up with. It turned out to be a lot of fun and she enjoyed it!!
Start by cutting out a circle and a square from card stock or construction paper. (Have your child do the cutting if they can...). Then glue the circle onto the square to make your gum ball machine.
Add a little dispenser...because...."mom...where is the gum ball going to come out?" (Love her.)
Then use a round object to stamp your gum balls all over your gum ball machine. We used a wine cork.
And if you want to have more gum ball fun, check out our gum ball machine post from last year! We brought it back out after we made our new gum ball machines and got to work adding more colorful gum balls!
