Candy Cane Still Life

Candy Cane Still Life

Today was another rainy day, and after setting up a marble run, sommersaulting off the couch, playing with neighborhood friends, and jumping in puddles, I pulled Candy Can Still Life out of my rabbit hat. It was a short activity, but totally worthwhile and applicable, I think, to a wide variety of ages. In terms of creating a still life, my toddler (is 2.5 still a toddler? I'm not so sure.) isn't at all interested in depicting objects realistically, but at her age we could take inspiration from the colors of candy canes.
