I posted some candy cane ideas in this post. I made these peppermint scented marble paint candy canes and the circle candy canes. I also made peppermint play dough, which has been the favorite of all of my holiday play doughs this year.
I cut some red and white candy cane shapes.
The children have to choose ten different word stripes to add to their candy cane. After they make their candy cane, they read their words to a friend at their table. Then, they write their words on a recording sheet. They will also read the words to me.
After they glue on the strips, I turn the candy cane over and help the children trim the edges.
When they finish this center, they get a mini candy cane to take home and eat as they read their candy cane words to a grown up.
Here is a copy of the sight word sheet I used and the recording sheet. Just click on the picture if you would like a copy.
Here is a fun video of Santa making candy canes!
This is a quick little holiday activity to prepare and fun for the kids to make. Have fun!
