Candy Cane Hearts
craft is a little more difficult to make, even though it looks quite
easy. It wont take much time if you use hot glue, but will require
overnight drying time if you use white school glue.
What you will need:
2 Candy Canes
Hot Glue Gun with Glue Sticks or White School Glue
Wax Paper (if using white school glue)
Bow or Jingle Bell (optional)
Step One: Have the children pick two candy canes and place them
into a heart shape.
Step Two: If using hot glue, have an adult helper glue the two
candy canes together. *Skip to step five*
Step Three: If using white school glue, have the children place
the heart shape on wax paper and cover the areas where the two canes
meet with glue. Repeat covering these two areas with glue several
Step Four: If using white school glue, let the heart dry
overnight after 6-10 coatings of glue.
Step Five: If using white school glue, cut off excess dry glue
from around the candy canes after drying.
Step Six: Have the children cut off one foot of red ribbon. They
can tie it around the top of the heart. They can then tie the ends
together at the top, creating a loop to hang the heart with.
Step Seven: The kids can then use a smaller piece of ribbon and
tie it in a bow at the front or add a jingle bell. (optional)
