Candy Necklace

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.

I'm so glad I just saw that idea. I am attending my family reunion this weekend, and I'm in charge of crafts for the kids (mostly girls and one boy). This will be an easy idea to put together!

And NOW I am going to stop reading your blog and commenting on so many things and driving you crazy. I need to get back on track with my To Do List and stop puttering around with you. But it's been such fun!
