Candy Cane Factory

Her Entry
Have a factory with windows where kids are looking in to see candy canes being made.  Have the candy canes on a belt going around and have a factory worker inside looking down at the belt like she is making them.  For the lighting, have a white light lighting up the inside with a Christmas tree outside covered in candy canes. For a sound have the kids saying "look look" as enticing other kids to comes to look at the candy canes being made. I was inspired by the candy canes that I have traditionally put on my Christmas tree every year.
