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
  • Candies
  • Gingerbread Cookies
  • Curling Ribbons
  • Small Bowls
  • Plastic Craft Needles
  • Gumdrops
  • 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.
