Candy Cane Reindeer

Preschool Christmas Craft

Candy cane reindeer are a classic preschool Christmas craft for children.

They can be hung on the tree as a decoration and then eaten up later! Here are the simple project instructions that show how quickly these can be put together.

Try tying them on your Christmas packages as an extra adornment or giving them out with hot chocolate!

2. Twist the pipe cleaner around the top of the candy cane once or twice to secure. Then bend them in an antler shape and trim them to size, if necessary.
