When my son was in fourth grade he made these paper candy canes. He must have found the activity totally addicting since he brought home a dozen. I tied them to a long piece of yarn and hung them in my kitchen window. Each year they make my kitchen look so festive!
All you need is white copy paper, ruler, pencil, marker and clear tape
Cut the paper into a square. The size of your paper determines the size of your candy cane. We made our paper 8 1/2″ X 8 1/2″. Using a ruler make a red line about 1/8″ thick down the edge of two adjacent sides of the square.
Turn the square face down and begin rolling from the corner without red lines
Fasten corner with a clear piece of tape
Wrap about 3 inches of one end of the paper tube around a pencil
Adjust top and trim off any extra paper on the top and bottom
Cute and simple!
