What you will need:
Cardboard box (cereal would work too)
Paper plate (I used the thicker kind made from recycled material, they are sturdier)
Scissors (I did all of the cutting)
Paint (green and red)
Glue (hot or super- again I did this)
Ribbon (red or green)
First I drew two candy canes on the cardboard and then cut them out. Then I gave my son red paint and a paint brush and let him create art. He spent about 15 minutes painting the candy canes and then informed me when he was done with them.
Next I cut a circle out of the middle of the paper plate. This will be the actual wreath. I then gave him a new paintbrush and some green paint. Again I let him paint for as long as he wanted.
