I threw my first birthday party for one of my children where activities were 100 percent of the entertainment. In the past they have wanted inflatables etc., and with those, you don’t fill the time. You just let those puppies run! I was nervous to do an all activities party because I didn’t know how many activities I would need or how long each would last with a bunch of 4-ish year-olds. I pictured flying through everything and then all of the kids just sitting there staring at each other and their parent’s staring at me and I’m naked! No wait, that is the nightmare I had about it the night before. I did wear clothes and successfully left them on.
This simple activity was what dreams are made of and how cavities come to be: DIY Candy Necklace Bar. They can wear them, eat them, or take them home as a super unique and easy favor they made themselves.
I bought different colored string and used Fruit Loops and several different types of Life Savers (gummy, orange mint, etc.) I also tried to use one inch cut pieces of Twizzlers, but the holes were not big and circular enough. Note to yourself: If you do this activity, use Red Vines instead. I think those would work much easier!
How cute and fun was this?!?! It’s affordable and not something you have likely done at a party before! Pin, share, enjoy and follow all of my party pants, right here…right now, y’all.
