This was a really fun and simple craft that the Happy Buddy and I did the other day.
I think the Happy Buddy especially enjoyed it because he got to use one of his toy cars!
Toy car (marbles or rubber toy balls would work as well!)
Step 1 – Use the pencil to draw a candy cane shape on the white paper and then cut it out.
Step 2 – Place the candy cane in the pan.
Step 3 – Add a couple of squirts of red paint.
Step 4 – Start rolling the car through the paint and over the cut out candy cane (or if using marbles/balls, tilt the pan back and forth so that the balls roll through the paint and over the candy cane).
Step 5 – Let dry.
There they are! Aren’t they cute?
Mine is the one on the left – the Happy Buddy’s is on the right.
When I showed the Happy Hubby our craft when he got home from work he smiled and commented, “Yours looks like a candy cane. But the Happy Buddy’s looks like it is the scene of a crime.”
Merry Easy Candy Cane Craft-ing!
