Edible St.Patrick's Day Craft {Rainbow Necklace}

I don't go overboard when it comes to celebrating St. Patrick's Day, but my boys always like to do a few simple crafts and activities.  One of our favorites is this edible rainbow necklace.

Isn't it cute?  I never buy sugary cereal, so this is an extra special treat for my boys.  (It is great fine motor skills practice too.)

All you need is shoe string liquorice and a box of Froot Loops. Tie a knot in one end of the liquorice, and then have your child string the Froot loops onto it.  We did ours in a rainbow pattern (minus the purple), but you can do it however you want.

You can also use cording (instead of liquorice), and/or you can add a chocolate coin charm by gluing a bit of pipe cleaner to the coin.

This is a fun project, and it is 100% edible. Would your little ones enjoy this simple craft?  I think it is a perfect activity for a St. Patrick's Day party.
