While we were all trying to get through a nasty head cold last week, the boys and I were going nuts from being stuck in the house all day, every day. We were sick of each other and bored. Truth. I had pinned enough things on Pinterest to last me a year and the boys had played with all of their toys multiple times. I started pulling out activities for them to do so that I could ensure they would both still be alive by bedtime. One thing that turned out fun was making a food necklace for movie night. I bought a few foods with holes in them and grabbed some embroidery floss from my crafting desk and we were ready to go. Graham wasn't very good at it, but Parker was a pro. Though he won't admit his enjoyment in making jewelry, I think Daddy even have fun making the necklaces.
The options are endless, but I was trying to keep the necklaces somewhat healthy and non-messy. I really wanted to put chocolate covered pretzels on it, but figured Graham would be covered in chocolate, therefore my living room would have been covered in chocolate if I did. The list of foods we used:
Cascadian farms fruit O's
Cascadian Farms chocolate O's
Glad we are over the sickness and able to be out and about this week!
