Some days my kids are all up in my business.

It’s not horrible–I love it when they want to do stuff with me, but then there’s days where they just won’t help, but rather want to tell…LOL!

It was one of THOSE days when the girls decided to “teach me” How to Make Easy Candy Unicorn Horns.

They wanted to do it with some of the lollipops I was making–but I thought that was too hot.

So, we came up with an alternative they could “teach” me to make.

I mean, how else were they going to teach me How to Make Easy Candy Unicorn Horns if they didn’t make it themselves?

Check out the quick video I made of the kids and I making these candy horns.

Super simple–and if the girls were a little bit older, they could have done everything by themselves.

However, given that they are 4 and 5, I felt that I could do the food coloring.

You know, because I didn’t want the walls to be blue.
