Easy Popcorn Candy Necklace Edible Craft
Recommended for ages 3 and up (gummy bears could be a choking hazard)
A perfect treat to celebrate National Popcorn Day on January 19th!
Materials Needed for the Popcorn Candy Necklace:
Wide eye safety needle
Spool of thread
1 Small bag gummy bears
Handful of cheerios
Note* the amount of popcorn, gummy bears and cheerios needed will depend on how many kids will be making necklaces.
For 2 necklaces we used less than 1 cup cheerios, half bag of gummy bears and a half bag of popcorn.
Cut a piece of thread twice as long as you will need.
Double up the thread and tie a knot at the end.
Tie the knot a few times to make sure it is bigger than the size of the needle.
Thread the end opposite of the knot through the eye of the needle.
String a few pieces of popcorn by inserting the needle into the middle and gently pulling it down the thread.
Next, string a few cheerios.
When adding the gummy bear, you may need to have your child wear a thimble or push the needle through on a hard surface.
The gummy bears are a bit hard to push the safety needle through.
Continue stringing popcorn, candy and cheerios until just about the end of the thread.
Leave enough room to be able to tie a good knot.
Tie the two ends together, grab a friend & a movie and enjoy your sweet and salty snack!
