Candy Fire Truck

What would be the best way to make a small, edible Fire Truck made out of unwrapped candy to give to FireFighters on Christmas Day. This would need to be a craft that children age 5-10 could make without glue (perhaps double stick tape or something of the like).

Use Big Red (or other red chewing gum) pack topped by 2 or 3 red Starburst type candies lined up and perhaps one extra for the cab of the truck. Use black licorice Nibs cut in half and rolled round to resemble a wheel for all four wheels. Take a piece of unwrapped white gum like Extra Winterfresh and cut it in half to make two long narrow pieces. Remove the eraser from a pencil and form the metal eraser holder into a square and use this as a cookie cutter to remove squares from the gum strips to resemble a white ladder. Put one or two of these on top of the Starburst 'bed' of the fire truck. You could also use Fondant to form the parts. You could add a Red Hot to the top as a Light. I would use double stick tape or an edible adhesive(???) for assembling. I know most of these are WRAPPED candies but it would travel (from assembly site to station) better and be more edible (less dirty/germy) this way. And less loss to hungry assemblers if wrapped. I have done ChooChoo train engines and Biplanes this way for St Nick/stocking stuffers successfully.
