This is a sweet little something to keep, or give away to your special someone. Anything you can make, wear, and eat for a snack later on is a winner in our book!
Little ones will love being able to string this colorful necklace themselves and then nibble on it for an afternoon snack. This activity is great for teaching and practicing patterns and fine motor skills. Children can pick their favorite colors and repeat the pattern until they have made a necklace long enough for their necks.
Want to give it away as a gift? This would be a darling gift for Valentine's Day or Mother's Day.
