Remeber the candy necklaces and bracelets we used to get. It was great fun firing the sweets off the elastic, straight at your brother wasn’t it? Well, we make our own now. They’re not quite as “pingy” as the bought ones but the children still love making them.
Take a bag of strawberry or cola laces and a box of multigrain hoops breakfast cereal (plain ones, chocolatey ones or fruity ones for patterns) and let the kids make their own edible jewellery. They simply thread the laces through the hoops and tie to the required length. If you tie a hoop to one end of the lace first, it stops the hoops falling off the bottom and saves the younger ones getting frustrated.
