Nothing smells more like the holidays than candy canes! Let’s make a paper lollipop that REALLY smells like peppermint. Make your own scented paint for a fun Christmas craft you can easily do at home or in the classroom. There is so much you can do with a few sheets of paper and some cardboard. I love simple projects that look amazing but don’t take a ton of time, supplies, or craftiness to do. We have tons of fun Christmas activities for you to try!
This paper lollipop is also a fun sensory play idea as well. Add some peppermint flavoring to your paint for an easy scented paint to use.
