Over the past couple days we’ve been learning about the meaning of the candy cane. We’ve read The Legend of the Candy Cane a few times (the children keep requesting it) and I’ve done a little flannel story I made talking about the meaning behind the candy cane – a very basic telling of the story. Then we marble painted red paint on white paper and then sprinkled red glitter on it and I’m cutting candy canes out of those.
After we’d gone over the meaning of the candy cane, I gave each child one to take home so they could tell the story to their families – which some have done based on what the parents have told me! It’s always a joy to see the children so excited about learning something that they go home and share it with the ones they love! It’s awesome! 🙂
