Candy Cane Game Ideas
Candy Cane Limbo
Using a broom handle and empty gift wrap tube, create a candy
cane. Bend the gift
wrap tube and duct tape it to the broomstick handle to create the top
curvy part of the
candy cane. Cover the broomstick and gift wrap tube with
white paper and add thick red
ribbon stripes or red paper stripes. Now the kids can play
limbo under the candy cane.
Candy Cane Hot Potato Game
You can use either real or decoration candy canes. You have the
children sit in a circle and
pass the candy cane around the circle with a fun Christmas song playing in
Then stop the music and the child with the Candy Cane gets to answer
Place a candy cane for each child inside a small cardboard box and
gift wrap it.
Put the wrapped box inside a larger box, wrap it, and then select
box until the package is as large as you can handle.
To play the game, have everyone sit in a circle. Play music and
pass the package around.
When the music stops the player holding the package starts
to unwrap it. When the music
starts, the package is passed again. When the candy canes are
found, share them with everyone.
Candy Cane Hunt
Print candy canes in different sizes onto card stock and laminate
them. Hide them around the room and have a candy cane hunt.
Candy Cane Pass
You'll need 4 candy canes per team. The player holds 4 candy canes
and passes them down the line, teammate to teammate, without dropping
Who Took My Candy Cane?
Give each child a candy cane cutout. Have each of the
children put their heads down
and eyes closed. Then have them hold up their cutouts. Have
child secretly take a cutout from one of the seated children. The
child with the missing
cutout guesses who took his/her candy cane for a chance to switch
places with that child.
