Have kids create an Elf Candy Cane Holder using foam materials and Glue Dots. Easy Christmas crafts are a great way to get kids excited for the holiday season. Have kids create this project before the holidays and display it on a kitchen table. This is also a great item to display on a desk or mantel. If you don't have candy canes, you can throw in other festive candies and sweets. Everyone will love the look of this adorable free craft project and will want to know where you bought such an adorable piece. They won't believe it when you tell them it's handmade by kids.

  6. Cut or punch 2, 1/8" circles from black foam for the eyes and 1/4" circles from the white and green foam for the buttons.

  13. Apply Glue Lines around the top edge of the outside of the box and secure the arms so they wrap around to the front. Attach the gloves to the arms using Craft Glue Dots. Now attach the buttons to the body front using Mini Glue Dots.
