Holiday Crafts and Recipes: A Creative Twist on the Candy Train Christmas Craft for Kids

By on 12/02/2011 01:59:00 PM

We are getting ready for Christmas in A Mama’s Corner of the World—and it’s time to begin our month of crafts, gifts and holiday food creations. One of our family traditions involves creating special gift baskets for the girls to give to family and friends—from handmade or homemade items. We spend the month of December working on crafts and recipes to include in the baskets. This month, we’ll be posting some of our favorites here under the Holidays category tab.

One of the girls’ favorite holiday craft activities is building a candy train. We try to add our own unique twist to even old, traditional favorites. Some of our posts this month will be directly posted on A Mama’s Corner of the World—others will link to our favorite holiday crafts and recipes from our other writings throughout the web. Our first December Holiday Corner craft is a creative twist on the usual candy train craft as posted on Yahoo! Voices! a season or so ago.

A Creative Twist on the Usual Candy Train Christmas Craft for Kids.  Many have seen and created a candy train or an ornament from rolled LifeSaver candies, rolled mints, packages of chewing gum, and other wrapped candies. The candy train that this guide will create instead uses foil wrapped candies in festive Christmas colors to mimic the shiny steel locomotives that inspired so many in years gone by.….Check out materials and instructions for this candy train Christmas craft for kids  at Yahoo!
