Christmas Activity Ideas for Children | Legend of the Candy Cane | by Ashlee Proffitt
We did this sweet activity last year and it makes my heart almost burst open to see these precious pictures of my babies only one year ago. How they have grown. What a blessing and privilege it is to have the opportunity to watch my babies grow.

This activity is super simple and super fun!

Materials
  • Green Paper or Blank Canvas
  • Red Paint
  • White Paint
  • Paper Plates

Instructions
  1. If using a blank canvas, paint the canvas green.
  2. When canvas is dry (or on green paper) draw the shape of a candy cane.
  3. Pour a quarter size amount of red and white paints onto separate paper plates (this will keep them from mixing the colors and creating an all pink candy cane).

So forgetful.

Early Will I Seek You | Morning Routine by Ashlee Proffitt for Glow, Live As Light.

Read the full post over at Glow, Live As Light where I had the privilege of guest posting this week. 

You can also find a printable version of the print above on the full post.
