We are getting into the spirit of Christmas at Wildlife Fun 4 Kids, which means I’ve been preparing another gift for you all again this year. I know it seems a little early for a Christmas craft, but believe it or not, it’s only five weeks until Santa gets here!
Candy Cane Decorations
Last year I made these Wildlife Christmas Tags for you all, but this year’s gifts are these candy cane holders. Candy canes are always a good choice when decorating the house or the Christmas tree. They are festive and they’re yummy! These holders are just another way to display candy canes a little differently, and of course I want to bring a little bit of wildlife fun into your Christmas decorations too.

Candy cane holder as a gift idea
We printed these out and made them for the girls’ kindy carers, but they would make great presents for fellow classmates, teachers and even family and friends.
Make the Candy Cane holders
It’s quite simple.
1. Download them by clicking on the image. I’ve made versions for the two top countries that visit Wildlife Fun 4 Kids – Australia and the United States. Click on the image to download.
2. Then, paste the paper onto some recycled cardboard. We used a cardboard cereal packet.
3. Cut them out. It does take someone with a little more experience with scissors to cut these out though, so this might be a job for the parents.
4. Once they are all cut out, flip them around a candy cane and glue the ends together. You may have to hold it with your fingers for a couple of minutes.
I’ll be sprinkling a few more Christmas posts around WF4K as we draw closer to the day. If you aren’t feeling quite in the mood yet, I know something that might help with that. Watch these Wildlife Christmas songs with your child and you’re sure to start feeling that Christmas spirit!
I hope you like your Christmas Candy Cane holders and that they help to decorate your house or become lovely little gifts for your family and friends. Christmas is the perfect time to give and I hope these bring a smile to the faces of whoever receives them.
