Making a Candy Cane Sleigh

Candy Cane Christmas Sleigh

This would make a nice, inexpensive craft for kids in the higher elementary grades to make at a party. Ask them to bring a photo that they are allowed to cut, or let them take digital photos at the party and print out on card stock with your computer. Also makes a great grandparent gift!

Here is an easy craft to make for teachers, co-workers or friends. The first thing you need to do is to make the sleigh: Plug in your glue gun in a safe area; clean kitchen counter works well (high up from kids).
