Friday's with Friends {snack necklace craft}

My daughter is the accessory queen so when I saw these necklace crafts, I knew I had to try them! Not only will this be a fun experience for her, she’ll also get to work on hand/eye coordination.

Materials Needed:

  • Scissors

  • A small piece of tape

  • A piece of yarn or string (whatever you have laying around the house)

  • “O” shaped cereal or snack (we have cheerios, pretzels, and cheez-its)

A few things you can do ahead of time to make it easier. Cut the string the length you’d like the necklace to be. If using yarn or string that can unravel, wrap tape around the end to make threading the cereal easier. Have your cereal separated in different bowls and ready.

Have fun! I’m guessing more of our snacks will be eaten than actually threaded on the necklace, but as long as they’re having fun -- that’s all that matters! While browsing the grocery, I realized there aren’t a ton of options for food with holes in them, but feel free to get creative. If you’re doing this in the morning, you could try powdered donuts. If you have older children, you could use lifesaver candies, peach rings, or other hard candies. Fruit Loops and yogurt covered pretzels would also be tasty!

So mamas-- invite some friends over and try out this super easy craft! It’s fun for all ages and will keep those little hands busy so mamas can enjoy at least a few minutes of uninterrupted adult conversation. {yes. I realize my toddler will likely need a little more assistance, but part of this craft is letting her learn and figure it out as well. She’ll do great!}
