Let’s make candy necklaces and candy bracelets
Candy. Candy. Candy. It always seems to be around the house no matter the season. If you are looking to do something creative with the treats your kids have collected, these DIY candy necklaces are a lot of fun.
These make me thing of those classic candy necklaces that were made with the chalky candies, except this version tastes much better!
We try to make Friday a fun family day each week
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.
If you are concerned about clothing, let your kids wear and eat these in old grubby clothes or just run around without a shirt on for a time. Trust me, the candy jewelry won’t last long.
