So what are you waiting for? Let’s make a Candy Cane Craft with the kids!

Craft items you will need and Craft instructions:

    1. Gather your materials. You will need some cardboard (like an old cereal box), some red paint, a marker, glue, cotton balls and something to paint with. We are using a dish scrubber because it’s been a while since we’ve painted with it but anything will do, finger painting is a great option too!
    2. Start by drawing a candy cane on the cardboard.
    3. Paint it red and let it dry.
        1. Add some stripes of glue.

        1. Pop on some cotton balls and Let dry.

        1. When it’s all dry, cut it out and you have a sweet, soft and fluffy treat!


      And, voila, the children have now made a Candy Cane for Christmas! This is a perfect activity for preschool and kindergarten children for a winter or Christmas theme unit.
