Creating candy canes

The Art Junction had two candy cane-making opportunities in December.

We held a candy cane-making workshop at the North Fairfield United Methodist Church’s community night.

We also had a family art day at the Art Junction where families could come and create candy canes.

The candy canes were made out of a polymer clay that goes by the brand name of Sculpey and comes in many colors.

It is a fun material to use that is easily baked in an oven or a toaster oven.

This is a great project for kids of all ages.  It’s fun to mix colors, and it incorporates basic clay skills for everyone to learn.

Everyone had fun as we enjoyed a large attendance at both events.  Maybe you can join us next year for this annual event at the Art Junction.
