Pantry Boredom Buster


Emily kept herself happily occupied by crafting up several rainbow necklaces using a few items from the pantry — some colored cereal, and some cotton kitchen twine. Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!

To make the beading a bit easier, I added some tape to the end of the string (almost like a shoelace). Beading is a great activity for developing fine-motor skills, and can be used to practice pattern recognition too.

So pretty!!

  1. Dear Valerie,

    That must have been a treat for the girls — we almost never have that fruity cereal in our house!

    Love,
    Mark

  2. Cool! Then you can eat them while you wear them!!!

  3. And if you’re hungry while you’re out, it’s a quick snack :)

  4. Looks like fun! We haven’t done this yet, but I bet the kids would love snack necklaces :-)
