Candy Cane Sleigh

This Candy Cane Sleigh is a cute Christmas craft to give or keep! Print the template for the sleigh right from your computer. You can print it on colored paper, or print it on white and decorate it! We filled our sleigh with little chocolates wrapped with ribbon, you can fill it with just about anything!

Ages: 4 and Up

An adult will have to help preschoolers with the folding part. It may be better for younger children if you print the sleigh on white paper so they can decorate it with markers or glitter, since they can't do the folding part by themselves.

Here's what you'll need...

• Cardstock paper to print template (construction paper will work, but sturdy paper is best)
• Printed Sleigh Template*
• 2 Candy canes
• Glue
• Scissors
• Small chocolates and ribbon (we used Hershey Miniatures and Dove)

* Instructions for template: The template will open in a new window; close this window when you are done printing to return to the activity page. You will need Adobe Reader to open the template. If you do not have it you can download it for free here.

Here's how you make it...

1. Print and cut out the Sleigh Template on colored or white paper.

2. Fold on the dotted lines, and then fold the small tabs that have "glue" written on them.

3. Put some glue on the tabs and glue the corners together. Your sleigh is complete!

4. Glue your candy canes onto the bottom of the sleigh. You'll have to hold them on there until they are good and dry.

5. We filled our sleigh with small wrapped chocolates, wrapped with thin ribbon around and tied in a bow. You could fill your sleigh with just about anything!

Make this craft even better by making your own pine cone reindeer to pull your Candy Cane Sleigh! Tie a piece of yarn or string around the neck of the Reindeer and glue in onto your sleigh.
