What You Need:

  • Red and white construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Green and yellow foam sheets
  • Pencil
  • Glue
  • Stapler
  • Double stick tape
  • Rhinestones, pompoms, sequins


What You Do:

  1. Show your child how to make a cone out of the red construction paper. Take a square of paper about seven inches by seven inches and roll it into a cone.
  2. Staple the cone in place. You may have to cut off some excess paper at the top for a flat opening. You can also use double stick tape to reinforce the cone so it doesn’t unroll.
  3. Your child can cut thin strips of white paper for the candy cane’s stripes.
  4. Using double stick tape, tape strips of paper down at the opening of the cone, and wrap them around in a spiral design. At the end of each strip, reinforce it with double stick tape. Cut off any excess.
  5. Show your child how to draw a evergreen tree on green foam. Make sure to include a tree trunk, about two inches long.
  6. Cut the tree out and glue it on the top edge of the cone by the trunk.
  7. Show your child how to draw a star on yellow foam and cut it out. Glue it to the top of the tree.
  8. Now decorate the tree with sequins, rhinestones and pompoms.
  9. Fill your candy cone with lots of candies and enjoy with friends!
