Open your pantry and grab a box of pasta, cheerios, or fruit loops! Today's craft is not only a lot of fun, but it's also great for practicing fine motor skills!

Materials Needed:  

    Noodles, fruit loops, cheerios, etc
    String, Yarn, or Ribbon
    Scissors
    Optional Supplies (markers, food coloring, etc)

***If you use food coloring to dye the noodles: add a small amount of food coloring and rubbing alcohol in a bowl or zip lock bag. Then add the noodles and leave them in for a few minutes.

What everyday household items have you turned into crafts? What items will your child use to make their necklace?

I bought some candy beads to make necklaces in the past. Usually we use pasta or cheerios.

We may have to do this with cereal. I told DH about it and he said it would be great for snack time we do the craft making the necklace and then the kids can eat the cereal for snack. Especially since dry fruit loops are only served as a snack item in our house.

We've used rice, toilet paper rolls, rubber bands, & parchment paper to make maracas.
