Easy Holiday Cheer Activity With Candy Canes
The Holidays are upon us and spreading holiday cheer is one of the many fun parts of the holidays that I enjoy. This idea from BIC Merry Marking is a fun, random way to spread holiday cheer in an anonymous way. Take a midnight stroll and deliver candy canes with fun little messages to your neighbors! I loved the idea of spreading cheer in this way- small surprises are always fun to give and receive! I used my BIC Mark-It™ permanent markers to help me accomplish my BIC Merry Marking easy holiday cheer activity. Writing and creating with BIC Mark-It™ permanent markers can help make any holiday merry and bright for the giver and the recipient. BIC Mark-It™ permanent markers offer 44 vibrant colors for endless inspiration! The bold, fade-resistant ink is low odor and acid free so I enjoy my creative projects much more. First, you will need to gather your supplies:
- BIC Mark-It™ permanent markers
- ribbon or twine
- hole punch
- candy canes
I used a ruler and Midnight Navy BIC permanent marker to divide my paper up into several rectangles that I would use for labels. You can do any size you want really. Then I cut out the rectangles and cut little triangles off of two sides to make it a fun shape label. I traced my paper label edges in Midnight Navy BIC permanent marker to create a border and used my hole punch to create a hole to loop the ribbon through. I used twine to tie the labels to the candy canes. I used about 16″ to make a bow and about 6″ to just make a tie. I did a few of each for variety. Then when my candy canes were ready, my kids and I hit the cul de sac and hung a few on neighborhood mailboxes. It was fun to spread the holiday cheer! I plan on sending sending a few extras into my children’s teachers tomorrow too!
