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!

Materials Needed:   

  • candy cane
  • glue
  • brown pipe cleaner
  • 2 googly eyes
  • 1 small red or black pom pom


1. Begin by dotting on some glue where the eyes and nose will go, then attach these facial features and allow to dry.
