What is Candy Cane Snag
You are probably wondering, “What is Candy Cane Snag?” I created this game last year when my kids were bored. All I had was a leftover red t-shirt. A box of candy canes and three little kids that needed to find something fun to do. That is when we put together a T-shirt candy cane pinata!
How to Create Candy Cane Snag
First, you will need to put together the t-shirt. It is very simple!
We used a plain red shirt. If you are just throwing this together on a whim. You could use an old t-shirt you have lying around. If you want to put this together for a Christmas party or a school PTO party you could still use an old shirt however you may want to grab a red or green one to keep it within the festive atmosphere. 😉
All I did was fold packaging tape and place it on the back of the candy cane to hold on the candy cane on to the shirt. The packaging tape held well for me.
This held the candy canes in place well enough for my daughter to be able to run around the yard while my other children tried to chase her and capture the candy canes.
I placed candy canes on the front and the back of the t-shirt.
How to Play Candy Cane Snag
Now to the fun part you’ve been waiting for right?! How to play Candy Cane Snag. I’m assuming you already know how to play the classic game Tag? You will have a group of players. There is one player that is “it” and that person will need to run around the yard or gym and tag the other players. Whoever that player tags next is “it.”
Candy Cane Snag is very similar to Tag. However, there is one player that is “it” the whole time and the other children will need to chase them around and steal all of their candy canes before the timer is up. Whichever player grabs the most amount of candy canes wins a prize.
If you are playing with a larger group. I highly suggest making more than one shirt. This game is a lot of fun to play! The kids loved it!
