Candy Cane Wreath - Kids Activity

With school ending for the holidays, you might need a great craft for the kids to do. Why not make a Candy Cane Wreath. My neighbor's daughter loves to come to my house. She said I was "the world's best crafter"! Kids are so naive!! 

We always do some sort of craft when she and her friends come over. 
On Saturday, they were coming over to work on Christmas presents for their moms. She brought me this candy cane wreath that she had made. She is nine. What a lovely surprise.

She said the hardest part was figuring out the layout. She is definitely a future crafter. She used scotch tape to hold the candy canes together. She wrapped the middle and ends together with tape. 

Then she taped the two candy cane "hooks" together. She used lots of tape.

She adhered them to a piece of cardboard that she painted. Her mother helped her some, but she did most of it. (she told me)
Here is a view of how she taped them together.

 She added some ribbon at the top, wrote Merry Christmas and the date on it, and it was done. I hung it on my door and she was so proud. I love it when children get excited about projects that they have made.

This would be a great project to do with your kids.

With so many different colored candy canes, these would be so cheerful and festive.
