Edible Necklace

Materials

  • Shoestring licorice
  • Cereal or crackers with holes in the middle

Directions

  1. Tie a knot at one end of a piece of shoestring licorice (or a plain piece of string).
  2. Show your child how to thread cereal or crackers with holes in them on the string, and then tie both ends together into a knot.

The end result will amuse your child for quite some time. In the grocery store, he can eat one piece each time you put something in the cart; in the car, he can eat one piece each time he sees a dog or a red car.
