Candy Cane Critical Thinking

I'm a big fan of asking kids to find new uses for old things. Tis the season to create a new use for candy canes! I demonstrated with my pen and how they've seen me use it to open things or wrap up my hair. We brainstormed a list of other uses. And then I sent them off to create 4 new uses for candy canes. They came up with some things I would not have thought of.... (these pics are not the best, I don't know what's going on with my camera).

a ladle, love their euphemisms---grandma spoon :)

A heart, a pickle, a circle and a letter

I think she's a future American Idol singer-but I would never have thought of a microphone-very creative!

A heart, square, and a stick

bed, car, backpack and table-love her illustrations!

I don't know if my Ruby would be able to be walked on a candy cane-it would be gone before no time!
