Ever since we saw candy canes at Target, the kids have mentioned them several times since, so I decided we would make our own. It is a little too early for me to buy them, so tonight we worked on our patterns. I am actually amazed at how well my 2 year old did. We used pony beads and pipe cleaners. They look great and we can't wait to put them on the Christmas tree at the end of the week! I hope my husband reads this post and realizes that we WILL be putting the tree up this weekend. :) It is one of my favorite things to do with my kids.
