“Look, I found one!” Excited giggles followed as they raced towards the red and white candy hanging from the apple tree. The kids had pulled out the card saying “Go on a candy cane hunt” from our Christmas Countdown Calendar, and it was a huge hit.
Want to hold your own candy cane hunt?
You can use either fake or real candy canes for your hunt. We used a mix of the two. (Red and white pipe cleaners twisted together make quick candy canes.) Head outdoors to hide the candy canes, hanging them from various tree limbs and shrubs. Or, hide them indoors for a fun activity when you’re stuck inside.
Then it’s time for the hunt!
It is truly magical watching kids race to find candy canes that are hidden among the otherwise barren branches.
Now, grab those candy canes and get ready to hear some excited giggles!
