Candy Cane Holiday Wreath- This is probably the easiest idea to have your kids do. The styrofoam ring can be found in the craft section/store, yarn and any decorations you like to add. Wrap the yarn and tie off. Use yarn to tie the decorations on also. No gluing necessary. Instead of yarn you could use strips of wrapping paper and tape it around the ring.
Fabric wrapped candy canes: fabric scraps, plastic candy canes, glue gun, mini bells and rope or ribbon. All items on hand or from the Dollar Store
