When I saw these snack bracelets pop up on pinterest, I knew they would be a perfect activity for our little ones. They are both always asking me to "sew something", and this looked like a great opportunity to let them use a needle and thread. Because the pieces are so small, and the task itself can be quite finicky, these bracelets took them about a half hour to complete - this was a huge bonus, as I was actually able to get a few things done around the house while they were quietly entertained. The majority of the snack mix went into their mouths, and not onto the bracelets, but as the ingredients were all healthy, I didn't mind at all.
To make our bracelets, we used dried blueberries, cut up dried mangoes and apricots, cheerios, and popcorn. Basically, I used whatever I could find in the cupboard that was healthy and small. If you wanted to switch things up a bit, and didn't care so much about the healthy part, you could always throw some mini marshmallows or gummies into the mix :)
