play time: edible necklace

Why not get the kids to make their own necklace?

You could use cereal with holes in the centre, something like fruit loops.

Pretzels, round cookies, gummy lollies with holes in them.

How about some cooked pasta? Yes, I know, not as exciting.

The trick is to not have them eat all the goodies before they complete the necklace.

What would your kids add to their edible necklace?

      Such a good idea isn’t Yvette. I used to always love eating the edible bracelets as a kid xx

      eating them after they have made a necklace right… or maybe while they are making it :) xx

    Such a great idea! But I am afraid that it won’t be long-lasting because my little toddler would eat them all in 5 minutes:)

      i know… that is the risk you take. I guess it could become a game of ‘how long can you last before you eat it’….xx
