Let’s Make a Chocolate Bar Craft
We all worry that our kids may be eating too much candy and chocolate.
Here’s a fun way to enjoy a chocolate bar without all the sugar! Make a pretend chocolate bar!
What are the main parts of a chocolate bar and what is the experience like for the kids?
- You have the wrapper with the name on it – Cadbury’s, Nestle or Hershey’s.
- Opening the paper reveals the next layer! The tinfoil that protects the chocolate bar and can be carefully opened or ripped off.
- Tearing the tinfoil reveals the chocolate bar underneath!
We can replicate all of these with arts and craft supplies and a little ingenuity and imagination!
So Let’s make a chocolate bar!
What you need:
- Paintbrush, marker, crayons
- Brown paint
- Double-sided tape, Blu-Tack
- Tinfoil and white paper
Step 1: Take out your supplies
- Take paintbrush, marker, crayons, scissors, double-sided tape, Blu-Tack, tinfoil and white paper.
- Take out brown paint or mix colours to make brown
- Cut 2 Pieces of cardboard from a cereal box or shoe box.
Step 2: Make the chocolate bar
- Stick the cardboard pieces together with double sided tape
- Now draw lines on the top in black marker to look like the pieces of chocolate bar
- Paint over the card
- Let dry
Step 3: Design your chocolate bar wrapper!
- What kind of chocolate is it? Hershey’s, Cadbury’s Dairy Milk?
- The wrapper needs to fit around your chocolate bar, so measure the length and width and cut the paper to the appropriate size
- Write the name and let your child colour in with crayons or markers
Step 4: Wrap up your chocolate bar!
- Now cut a piece of tinfoil larger than the paper
- Place the chocolate bar face down in the middle of the tinfoil and help your child wrap their bar in foil.
- Finally, fold the paper wrapper around the foil and close with Blu-Tack for easy opening and closing.
- Now let’s play! Have fun opening the wrapper and peeling off all or part of the foil.
