Sometimes I love snacks that are activities.
When food is an activity, snack time magically turns into an hour of entertainment for the kids and I can get a little work done in the meantime. It’s a win-win for everyone.
It’s also a great way to practice building patterns.
This curly ribbon is the best for this kind of activity. It’s not fibery so it doesn’t get icky and soggy when the kids bite the cereal off it. It’s also kind of stiff and textured, so it holds the cereal on really well while it’s being worked on—no precious cereal pieces slipping off while making the necklace. To make it even more easy for the kids, I wrap clear tape around one end of the ribbon so it’s a bit smaller and pokes through the cereal a lot better. I also tie a knot on the opposite end of the ribbon so the cereal won’t slip off when it’s pushed down.
Fun, yummy, and totally stylin’.
