A “twist” on a favourite childhood ornament- making a simple garland out of chenille sticks! This activity was featured on The Crafty Crow. Take a peek at this amazing craft collective for all sorts of holiday activities and creations: http://www.thecraftycrow.net/2014/12/chenille-stem-candy-cane-garland.html Materials Chenille Sticks Scissors Twine, cord, ribbon Wood beads (optional) Directions Candy Cane Garland Twist two chenille sticks together, wrapping one around the other. Bend into a candy cane shape and have an adult cut off any excess. (You could use the extra ends for little present toppers.) Attach to twine, cord etc. Hang up and enjoy! Extras: Attach a little ribbon and wrap these around a gift card, jewellery box etc. You could use the chenille sticks to make any other shapes that you may like (e.g, stars, trees and Christmas balls) and intersperse wooden beads on the garland in between for a bit of interest. When you do an activity, be open to play/exploration with the materials- who knows what you may come up with- an angel or maybe something a bit more abstract for the tree! Purpose Recognizing symbols of various holidays. Safety Notes An adult should cut the chenille sticks, due to the metal content. Please like & share: One Response Cassi December 10, 2014 Gosh!
