Today we made necklaces out of fruit - kind of like the candy necklaces but good for you. I thought it might be too hard for the little ones, but it wasn't. They really enjoyed making and eating their necklaces. This idea came from Rawdorable.
To make the necklaces, you need string, a needle (a nice big one for little fingers to control better), and some fruit. We used grapes and dried mango pieces. They weren't too messy, held up well, and were easy to work with.
To start, thread your needle.
String and tie a grape onto the end of the string. Leave a tail so you have something to tie for the necklace (the loop isn't necessary.)
Whenever you're ready, tie the two ends of the string together, put on your necklace, and eat up!
