What a fun way to announce Santa’s arrival with this load of sweet treats! This cute Santa Candy Sleigh Christmas craft is made entirely of edible goodness makes a great package topper, gift for classmates or teacher. I am planning on using them as place settings on each plate for Christmas Eve dinner with a handwritten name card attached. This is another fun and simple craft for just your or include the little ones in on the merriment. Load up on the candy and let’s get started putting it together!
1 Kit Kat Bar
2 candy canes
1 chocolate Santa
3-6 miniature candy bars
string or ribbon
hot glue or quick drying craft glue
Cut scrap paper to 5” x 7”, I used a piece of wood patterned paper.
Wrap paper around kit kat, secure with glue.
Spread glue down halfway down candy canes, glue to bottom of kit kat as shown.
Pile up miniature candy bars as “packages” on the back of sleigh, glue down, then add a ribbon to hold them on and add a little decoration to your creation.
Attach Santa securely to front with glue.
Run ribbon or twine from sleigh handles to Santa’s “hands” so he can drive his sleigh!
