I put together a little candy sensory bin for Wreck- It Ralph.
I had some rainbow sprinkles and nonpariels to use as the base. I put a cupcake liner in there for filling up with a spoon. We had some gummy strings as well as a swirly lollipop that was broken. They were sticky but fun.
Tom has some of the Sugar Rush candy racer toys, so I put King Candy’s car in there too.
Scarlett decided she wanted some more cars in there so she added the cars from Taffyta Muttonfudge and Snowanna Rainbeau.
Surprisingly, the kids didn’t try to eat it! I guess they had their fill of candy from the candy store. I might try to pull together an arcade themed bin, too. I just have to figure out what to put in it!
I’d heard good things about Candi’s Candies
in Old Town Alexandria, so that’s where we headed for the candy portion of our Wreck-It Ralph themed adventures.
At the front of the store they have lots of classic candy as well as bagged candy, gag candy, and licensed products (Luke picked out a Super Mario candy tin).
The entire back room is barrels of salt water taffy in all kinds of different flavors.
We let the kids pick whatever they wanted, and ended up with some bubble gum coins, sprees, chocolate malted eggs, candy corn, and a funny pink toilet filled with pink sugar and a lollipop plunger to dip! I got a selection of taffy to round it all out.
We did NOT buy the giant gummy snake at the front of the store.
I think our haul would’ve made Vanellope proud.
We were certainly successful in getting our own sugar rush!
