Candy Canes
by Erin Lassiter, KidsSoup, Inc.

Candy canes are a yummy treat.
That is why they’re good to eat.
I have to remember to brush my teeth,
When I’m finished with this sweet.

Preschool Activities: 

Give each child a candy cane outline traced on red paper and place paper plates with red and white paint on the table. Show children how to fill in their candy cane outlines with alternating red and white fingerprints.

Preschool Activities: 

While paint dries, introduce the poem. Read the poem out loud with children, pointing to each word on the chart paper. 

Preschool Activities: 

Give each child a poem to cut out. Have each child glue the poem to the side of his/her fingerprint candy cane and add a small green bow to the candy cane’s center.
