When I was in the 7th grade, I LOVED buying Airheads from the student store. They were stretchy, sweet, tangy, and delicious. (And they still are!) Now, my kids have discovered Airheads as well as Airheads Extremes and Airheads Bites. I’m a huge fan of Pink Lemonade and Cherry Airheads while my kids are crazy for the “Mystery” flavor and the extreme sour flavor in Airheads Extremes.

What’s better than delicious candy? Playing with it! Airheads are the perfect medium for some sweet crafty projects. Its pliable nature and bright colors make it a wonderful choice for creating sweet treats your whole family will love.Think cupcake toppers, “suckers”, cookie tops, cake decorations – the possibilities are endless! I sat down with the kids to create some unique #AirheadsCrafts, and am excited to show you what we came up with.


My kids loved creating with Airheads. It was fun to see their creativity as they worked with this new crafting medium. It’s always fun to mix it up when it comes to your art supplies. The next time you craft, add some Airheads to your supply box! Your kids will love it, and you’ll spend the afternoon creating some tasty memories. =)


Use a Mystery flavor to create a bunny head, and accent with Cherry and Watermelon. Add to a stick to use as a cupcake topper.


Use a Watermelon Airhead to create a snake. Use an Orange Airhead for accent pieces, and a piece of Airheads Extremes for the tongue. I used bits of Blue Raspberry and Mystery for the eyes.

The Airheads team created some awesome crafts as well. Here are a few of my favorites:
