Edible friendship bracelet

Are you looking for something a little different?  Do you remember the friendship bracelets of your youth?  Or the candy necklaces?   Here is our snack-time twist on these classics.

Edible Frienndship Bracelets, Valentine's Fun for kids, Crystal's Tiny Treasures

Cereal jewellery

Our supplies for this cheery edible friendship bracelet were:

Edible friendship bracelet ingredients

  • Cereal hoops
  • Candy laces

That’s it!

Now it’s time for a little fine-motor skills practice for your children as they string the cereal hoops onto the candy laces.

We used a multi-grain cereal, but you can use more colourful hoops if you’d like.  They would make a pretty colourful bracelet for a special treat.  However, those cereals are imported and much too pricey for our family, perhaps not a bad thing for us!

Once the string is long enough, just tie off the ends and you will have a slightly stretchy, edible friendship bracelet.

If you really want to get fancy, go ahead and make a matching necklace as well.

      The licorice is much better for the tummy than elastic string ;-) Thanks for stopping by, hae a great week.

      I dare you to do with with older kids! I’m sure they’d have just as much fun…I know I had fun making my own, and hubby enjoyed eating the one made for him ;-)

    You’re kids look like they’re having so much fun. I never thought about doing it with licorice! What a great idea!

      This was one of those crazy ideas that popped into my head during another conversation. The tough part was going out and finding what we could use. I’m sure we’ll be doing it again :-)

    You always share such wonderful and simple ideas, that even I can do. Thanks!!

      Thank you so much :-) Complicated ideas and me do not work well and end in disaster, just ask hubby! So in the effort to remain as sane as possible I try to stay simple!

      The children really had a lot of fun with this! Now when they see thecandy necklaces in the stores they ask if they can make one at home ;-)
