Candy Cane Apple

I'm going to cheat a little in this post by re-posting this candy cane apple that I made up last year. Why? Well, maybe you didn't see it last year.....and I totally used this idea again today so it's on my mind.

After school I asked my son, "Would you like an apple?" to which he replied a definite, "No."

Then, I remembered making this candy cane last year and I decided to cut one up for him even though he didn't want an apple.

"Here's your candy cane!" I called......He took one look and there was excitement galore! my happiness, it was completely gobbled up enthusiastically!  Amazing what a little altering can do.

Give it a try-it might work for you to :)

Also, I have a new Christmas Tutorial featured on Amy's blog. Check it out HERE
