Candy Cane Hearts
White construction paper, Q-tips, red paint, optional glitter, glue and ribbon for garland.
This is a great activity for small motor skills and makes a really cute ornament or decoration. Cut candy cane shapes out of white construction paper. Using a Q-tip and red paint, have your child put diagonal stripes on the candy canes, one facing each way. When you put them together, they'll form a heart shape. You can hang the open hearts on your tree, put a picture inside or make a garland. If you are extra industrious, you can put a construction paper backing on the heart and draw a picture or fill with glue and glitter.
