My sister and I sometimes like to get the kids together and do a seasonal craft. Last week we got the kids together to do something Christmassy. She found a fun craft for them - growing their own candy canes.
First we took peppermint candies and added them into cups with "dirt" (crushed up Oreos) to cover them.
Then we sprinkled them with magic dust (colored sugar)
And waited for them to grow
The next time we saw them, they had begun to sprout (add in broken candy canes)
A couple days later they were fully grown!
The kids got such a kick out of this activity! And it was easy to do too.
