Our Experience Making Candy Jewelry

We do pizza movie night in the evening. The kids arrive home from school, and there is no homework or chores – only play.

This past Friday, I thought it would be fun to make these DIY candy necklaces and bracelets that the kids could wear and enjoy during the movie.

Were they a little sticky? Yes. Are they full of sugar? Yes.

I think it’s important to let go of the typical mom role and embrace the sticky fun to create memorable times with your family. It was definitely a memorable family movie night!
