Pipe-cleaner Candy Canes

I know Christmas is coming and time is definitely running out for cute Christmas crafts to do with your kids, but if you need a quick activity during the winter break, make some cute candy canes with some pipe-cleaners and beads :)P1020772

My boys got very into this. My 4 year old understood the pattern concept right away, and my 2 year old got to work on his hand-eye coordination. Plus, these are super cheap to make and look really cute on the tree!P1020769

Just cut your pipe-cleaners in half, twist one end around a bead and have your kiddos put the rest of the beads on. When the pipe cleaner is almost full twist the end around the last bead and voila!
