Children will love to make and eat these candy necklaces. Make gingerbread men or whatever holiday shape you like using "How to Make Gingerbread Cookies."
Things You'll Need
- Thin Ribbons
- Gingerbread Cookies
- Curling Ribbons
- Small Bowls
- Plastic Craft Needles
- Colored Plastic Wrap
Choose candies with holes to string ribbon through or soft candy you can poke a plastic needle through. You can use wrapped candies and tie them to the ribbon with small pieces of ribbon.
Cut a piece of thin ribbon long enough to slip easily over child's head after it is tied.
Thread ribbon onto a plastic needle (which is safer for little ones).
Have different candies in small bowls within easy reach of each child. You may have to make a couple of bowls of each candy to go around the table.
Be ready to help with small problems or let older children help the younger ones. This way they get to make a necklace and still look cool.
When the necklace is full, tie ends of ribbon together and tie a gingerbread cookie to the middle of the necklace.
Tips & Warnings
- Wrap cookies in colorful plastic wrap and curling ribbon.
- Plastic needles are safer for kids, but small children will still need adult supervision using the needle.
