Holiday Candy

What's your favourite holiday candy?



Decorate your scrapbook page with a Candy Collage.

Read the wrappers.

Find out: Price, main ingredients, description, & country of origin.

Write onto little pieces of paper.

Stick onto your collage.


Descriptive Words


Make an unique, delicious & mouthwatering description of your candy.

We need to use lots of interesting describing words called adjectives.

Adjectives give an opinion or a description.

We usually use them in this order :

1. General opinion: Lovely, excellent, traditional, cool, popular, great or famous.

2. Specific opinion: Delicious, mouthwatering, crispy, sticky, tasty or melt in your mouth.

3. Size: large, chunky, gigantic, mini, itty bitty, baby or fun size.

4. Shape: bar, chunks, slab, drop, heart, stick, long, thin or round.

5. Colour: creamy brown, shiny pink, dark chocolate, or glazed red.

6. Nationality: French, Japanese, Korean, British or Indian.


Usually, we only use 1 or 2 adjectives to describe a noun. Let's have some fun. See how many you can use! Here are some fun examples:


Fantastic, sticky, melt-in-your-mouth, ginormous, puffy-cloud-like, pink American cotton candy.



Fabulous, creamy, sweet, round scoops of green, pink & yellow Italian ice cream.



Write your description on a piece of paper.

Stick onto your Candy Collage.

Great work!

Stick them onto your Cooking Collage.
