Candy Sleighs!

I dont know about you guys but every year right before Christmas I remember that I need to make/buy gifts for all the wonderful aids/helpers in my daughter’s school and I panic.  I panic because there are so many people and I have no idea what to get them all.  My daughter is so generous and she wants to give something to EVERYONE.  When we make a list of the people that we should get presents for, the conversation sounds something like this:

“We need to get something for the other lunch aid.  Not my regular lunch aid, but the other one, because she helped me once a few months ago when my regular aid was out and she is very nice.”

Then I stare at my list of twenty people and I wonder what I could possibly give them all for a few dollars each that would not be total garbage.  This year, I found an idea on Pinterest that I am so happy with and I just had to share it with you!

I am not sure who came up with this idea.  I did not.  I am not taking credit.  I am just showing you my take on it.  Periodically I am going to post an idea that I find on Pinterest with you guys.  Hopefully, it can help you, too.

So, to begin you must assemble your supplies.  You will need:

– a glue gun and glue sticks (I have the cheapest one ever that I bought at Michaels years ago.  I have used it thousands of times and it keeps on ticking.  No need to buy anything fancy here.)

– one regular-sized Kit Kat bar for each sleigh

– 10 Hershey miniatures for each sleigh

– a spool of thickish ribbon (I used gold)

– a peel and stick bow for each sleigh

– 2 candy canes per sleigh

 

To begin, let your glue gun warm up and assemble your supplies.  Then take a Kit Kat bar and put a strip of hot glue down each side and attach a candy cane.

Next, you are going to create a pyramid of Hershey’s Miniatures on top of the Kit Kat.  I used four bars for the base.  Hot glue those babies right on.

Next you are going to glue ribbon onto the sleigh and top it with a bow.

That is all there is to it!  So cheap and so easy!  Now the lucky recipient can eat the candy or save it as a cute decoration.
