I don’t know about you, but I just can’t imagine the holiday season without picturing a couple of candy canes as well.
They’re such a simple sweet treat that are synonymous with the Christmas season, but to me, it just doesn’t feel like Christmas without them.
As we get closer and closer to the actual Christmas holiday, we’ve been working on making a few extra sweet crafts and treats of our own and gathered up a few of our favorite candy cane crafts, snacks, and activities for the kids to try out as well and of course, I had to share them with you!
As always, when making any crafts or doing any activities with hard candy, there should be an adult in the group to supervise since candy canes can easily break and become a choking hazard.
With proper supervision however, these 25+ candy cane themed activities should get you all in the Christmas spirit!
