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!


  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 🙂
