We love all things edible here at Peas HQ! This is a fun crafty project you can do with your kids on a rainy afternoon or whenever their friends come over. Here is our healthy version of those edible Sweet Tart necklaces & bracelets. Instead of those sugar rounds why not string snacks you would rather your kids eat?!
- dried fruits like
- mangoes, cut into 1/2 inch peices
- apples, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
- licorice, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
- mini marshmallows
For the younger kids you may want to make bracelets instead of necklaces for safety reasons.
Start with about an 8 inch length of elastic craft string for a bracelet and 14 inches for a necklace.
Thread one item on the string and double-knot the string to it.
Let your children continue threading the ingredients you have gathered onto the string.
When they've filled it, knot the ends together. Now they have a necklace to wear and a snack to nibble!
