CHOCOLATE FACTORY ON A BUDGET

Ok, all you artsy people out there.

I'm directing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at a high school. I already have a good number of large candy props made for the chocolate room, but I figured you all might have some ideas I hadn't thought of.

Ideas? We are a small school on a small budget. Donations?

Thanks in advance for your sure to be fabulous ideas.

I would go to the party stores and see if they have Valentine Candy signs left over that they didn't throw out - you know with large pictures of chocolates or lollipops or such. Alice

Hey, my kids' dance group is performing Charlie & the Chocolate factory. We have a meeting tonight so I'll ask what they have in mind for props. I know one of them was taking shiny fabric over styrofoam, then tying bows at the ends and making them look like pieces of hard candy wrapped in shiny plastic, like a butterscotch or peppermint candy.

I'll follow up.

And you can do lollipops the same way.Just stick a dowel in the styrofoam disc and cover the disc with colored cellophane.

So far, I have glued tissue paper over styrofoam disks and painted a spiral pattern over this, taken a huge assortment of styrofoam spheres and covered with cellophane and tissue paper, glued gum-drop looking stones to an ivy topiary, painted trees yellow and pink with icing over, made cotton candy flowers and easter egg grass nests with peeps in them for the trees, glued vanilla wafers on the end of ice cream cones in the shape of petals, made giant cylindrical candy sticks with stripes going up the sides, and cut a chocolate waterfall out of styrofoam. I think that's pretty much it. Oh, wait, I also bought huge candy colored bouncy balls. These will be used as is.

Does your high school have a driver's ed area. the cones can be easily made into candy corn. Pink fiberglas insulation can be cotton candy. wear rubber gloves to put it up. don't let the kids to it...very itchy. The old fashioned crhistmas decoration of ivory soap and water can make whipped cream..dye it brown for chocolate. dicarded stuffed animals can be painted brown to make them chocolate. hmmmmmm. still thinking.

Maybe Tuz would volunteer to but dipped in chocolate and you would have a chocolate covered bunny - okay Steve?
