I love holiday projects with my kids.   Making Rice Krispies® Treats is actually perfect for us.   I have three little boys, and it doesn’t take long to make Rice Krispies® Treats, so this project held their attention span perfectly!

Not only are Rice Krispies® Treats easy to throw together- but you can literally make them into any shape or color you like.  Since I have boys, trains are very popular in our house.   I thought it would be really fun to turn these treats into holiday “candy cane” trains.

I purchased a family-sized box of Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® at Walmart, in the cereal aisle.  Use the Walmart store locator to find a Walmart near you!

I used peppermint candies for the wheels, and put out an assortment of other Christmas candy for my husband and the kids to use when the decorated these trains.   It is not vital that you use the same candy as me.  Be creative!
