Looking for a super-easy and quick Christmas craft to make with the kids? Got a church youth group, school classroom or Girl Scout Troop and looking for an easy project? If so, these adorable Christmas Candy Trains work up super quickly and are adorable!

To save money, we buy the majority of our supplies at our local dollar-type of discount store. You can find the glue dots that you need at your local craft store in the scrapbooking section.

Kid's Crafts: Christmas Candy Trains

When purchasing the candies, make sure that they are individually wrapped! You'll be adhering all of the wrapped candies together using the large glue dots.

Start by adhering the LifeSaves to the pack of gum using three to four large Glue Dots, as shown in the photos. Then use the Glue Dots to add on the train's wheels and then add the rest of the pieces to form the train. Some of the candies you'll need to use one Glue Dot and other's you'll need to use two, depending on the weight of the candy.

If you want to use them as edible Christmas tree ornaments or as package toppers, you'll need to purchase a roll of hanging metallic string or satin ribbon. Cut a piece 5 to 6" in length and tie it onto the train to form a hanging loop. That's it, you're done!
