We read the book Many Luscious Lollipops and I had the children write two sentences about candy using three or more adjectives. I cut the lollipop out below and printed two on one sheet of oaktag(I did not use the stick). The kids created a front and back. We added glitter, cellophane and ribbon. They look great hanging in the room.
