 Most of us like a little candy during the Christmas season. Kian and I wanted to show appreciation to all his nurses and therapists so we created a simple Christmas Candy Tree. We made it with poster board, stickers, candy, a bow, a star and a Christmas pin. It took about an hour to create this Christmas Candy Tree Craft. Have some fun, spread a little cheer, make and bring one to a Christmas Party or use it as a center piece for one of your holiday gatherings.

decorate with sticker tape to paper plate

Create a cone(use 1/2 sheet size poster board)and tape it to a white paper plate. Use hand over hand with disabled children to place stickers on the cone. Attach a Star with a Christmas message. Details for creating a cone.

Place tape on the ends of the candy and help your kids tape it to the tree. Use hand over hand with handicapped or disabled children. All children like to see the results of touching and building a creation.
