I recently picked up this month's issue (May 2009) of Parents magazine and I was excited to see that they had a little "Let's Party" section that gives creative party ideas for children's birthdays. They have some super-cute favor ideas and one that stood out to me (because it was not only adorable, but so affordable) was titled "Candy Couture". They fill a small tin with colorful cereal O's, life savers and licorice laces so that kids can string their own neckaces and bracelets. I stopped by the drug store today on my way home from work and picked up the few ingredients necessary to make this precious edible bling. Although we are not having a party, I thought that my ten year old Claire would enjoy making this fun little craft. It was a big hit and she's planning on wearing her colorful bracelet to school tomorrow.
