I love candy tubes. They’re one of those treat staples that you need to keep on hand in the closet. The possibilities of what to do with them is endless. You can fill them with whatever sweet surprise you want, add a gift tag and they make a wonderful favor. The bigger tubes are even the perfect width for one inch gumballs.
While thinking about some fun back to school treats for the kids, I created these fun DIY gumball rulers and free printable back to school tag. It’s really easy to make and I’m sure the kids will be excited about going back to school if gumballs are involved!
You Will Need:
8 yellow gumballs
A set of small black sticker letters and numbers
1. Load your gumballs into the plastic candy tube.
2. Place each number on the candy tube a little above the bottom of each gumball. Using the “i”, “l” and other straight letters, add the marker lines next to the numbers. If you’re making multiple tubes, I also cut up the capital letters to make the lines. Or you could use a permanent marker.
3. Print out the set of our free printable “School Rules” gift tags. Use a three inch punch or cut out each gift tag. Punch a hole in the top of the tag. Tie onto the tube using red ribbon or baker’s twine.
Give this fun little gumball treat to little one on the first day of school or leave as a fun surprise at Back to School Night. It’s even a great way to practice counting!
