Holiday Crackers

Holiday Crackers 
 Time Needed: 1Hour

These simple candy-filled cardboard tubes, modeled after traditional British crackers, are a snap to mass-produce for a classroom holiday party. Your child can personalize them by adding mini handwritten notes or drawings along with the candy or add some noise by tying a jingle bell on one end.

  • Scissors
  • Wrapping paper
  • Empty cardboard tubes, trimmed to desired lengths
  • Clear tape or glue stick
  • Ribbon or string
  • Wrapped candy, toys, or treats
  • Jingle bells (optional)


  1. Cut a piece of wrapping paper that’s 6 inches longer than the tube and wide enough to wrap completely around it at least once. Center the tube along one long side of the paper and use tape or glue to hold it in place.
  2. Your child can then wrap the paper tightly around the tube and secure the seam with tape or glue. She should then twist the excess paper at one end and tie it closed with ribbon or string.
  3. Fill the tube with candy and other tiny surprises, then twist and tie closed the open end.
