Children’s Crafts: Cotton Ball Candy Canes


Day 1: Children’s Crafts: Sequined Ornaments
Day 2: Children’s Crafts: Felt Christmas Trees
Day 3: Children’s Crafts: Jesus Candle
Day 4: Children’s Crafts: Painted Glass Ornaments

Our last Christmas craft of the week is an easy one!  Some days allow for more involved crafts, while others don’t.  These Cotton Ball Candy Canes are simple and you probably have all of the materials already at home.

An older child could easily do this whole thing by himself.  However, this craft is a great one for littles too if you help them with the cutting.

Items You’ll Need:
– red construction paper or cardstock
– white glue
– cotton balls

How to Make Cotton Ball Candy Canes

First, draw a candy cane on the red construction paper or cardstock.  If you are like me and would rather have a template, here is a great candy cane template that is plenty big for this project.

After cutting out your template, ‘draw’ lines with your white glue.

Then glue on cotton balls to create the white stripes of the candy cane.

Let dry and then hang in your favorite spot!

My fabulous mother-in-law gave my children the book and DVD set of The Legend of the Candy Cane last year for Christmas.  This is the perfect craft to make when re-reading that book!  I love it when I can dream up a easy craft to reinforce the Most Important Gift.
