Handprint Candy Cane Craft




Candy canes are yummy--and always leave sticky little fingers behind as evidence of their goodness. 
So in honor of the sticky fingers, I bring to you a fun and easy candy cane craft made with handprints!

Here's what you do:
  • Draw and cut a big candy cane shape out of a sheet of white paper (mine is 11" tall and 3" thick)
  • Pour some red paint on a plate (tempera paint, or finger paint)
  • Have your little one put their hand in the paint and then stamp it onto the candy cane. Repeat 3-4 times all up the candy cane.



Merry Christmas!

*P.S. The best finger paints around are by Crayola. They are the perfect consistency. Not too runny and not too thick. And best of all they are completely washable--and so easy to wipe off tables, fingers, and wash out of clothes. I HIGHLY recommend them for painting crafts with kids. 
And there is a great deal on Amazon right now to get a nice set of 12 different colors. In big bottles that you can use for a LONG time! Check it out!
