30 Days of Christmas Cheer {Day 27}: Grow a Candy Cane Tree… Magically

30 Days of Christmas Cheer: Grow a Candy Cane Tree

Omigosh. Do I have a fun Candy Cane tradition for you to start with the kids this year?! It’s whimsical, magical and so simple that it’ll be crazy not to do this!

I discovered this Grow Your Candy Cane Tree activity over at Growing a Jeweled Rose and I knew I had to share this with you!

Creating Childhood Memories and Traditions Activity

To grow your own candy cane tree with the kids this holiday season, simply “plant” a candy cane mint into a small pot that’s filled with either fake snow or like Crystal did, potting soil.

Encourage the kids to tend to their Candy Cane Tree pot by watering it and giving it plenty of sunlight.

Besides being tons of fun, this is a great tradition that encourages patience and also, teaches kids how things grow! 

After a couple of day, replace the mint with a candy cane and let the top peek out. Be sure to do this “magically” aka without the kids knowing!!

Enjoy their delighted expressions as they see the “sapling” come up and then, over the next few days, simply “make” the Candy Cane tree “grow” until it’s ready to be “plucked”!

A fabulously fun tradition and one that’s bound to make sweet memories for your kids too!

I love the idea but not sure about potting soil.
I’ve been loving your ideas popping up in my emails.
