Before our Thanksgiving road trip I headed to Walmart and purchased a bunch of different M&M’s. They come in so many sizes and colors and most importantly flavors that I had no trouble buying a few extra bags for this contest.
We first started separating our colors but that did not last long. They just dug right in.
I wasn’t sure how to go about this so we printed a few characters before we left to “trace” with our M&M’s.
Well half of the group went with the pictures we printed out and the other half created their own pixel art.
We came up with a race car
A pixie doll
A gun -AK47
A Christmas tree–That was mine I was not sure of the gaming characters and just felt in the spirit with my Christmas colored M&Ms.
What are you waiting for, you probably have some M&M’s left over from Halloween, if not grab a few bags at Walmart and get creative. Don’t worry about all the extra candy around, you can create some fun Holiday Decor with M&M’s.
