Our Easiest Kitchen Craft Ever

Wait until your kids get a load of these! Snack necklaces are as fun to make as they are to eat, and best of all, they’re super easy and practically mess-free.

Add a little pizzazz to your kiddo’s snacking routine with a yummy snack necklace (or two)! Simple to make and a blast to wear, these necklaces are an easy kitchen craft you can make with what you have on hand. Let’s get started!

What you need:

  • Yarn or string, cut into necklace-length strands
  • Tape
  • Cheerios
  • Other circular-shaped snack foods 

To make it easier for my daughter’s little hands to work with, I wrapped the ends of the yarn with tape. The stiff ends allow tiny fingers to string Cheerios and other O-shaped snacks onto the necklaces without needing much help from Mom.

There are endless flavor options to choose from given the versatility of Cheerios! With help from my daughter, we came up with three variations: a salty, a fruity, and a chocolaty necklace.

For the salty necklace we kept it simple, salty and delicious with original Cheerios with pretzels and onion-flavored rings. For the fruity necklace, we used yogurt-covered pretzels, peach ring candies, dried pineapple rings, and Fruity Cheerios. My daughter loved all the colors and making patterns with the different foods. I was nervous the chocolaty necklace would be too rich using chocolate-covered pretzels and chocolate-drizzled cookies, but the Chocolate Cheerios added the perfect taste and texture to our snack.

The best part about making snack necklaces with your kids is seeing their creativity come alive. My little one had a blast making her very own snack—and then wearing it, of course.

Customizable and simple, snack necklaces are now a staple in our snacking routine. We look forward to making them for movie nights at home and our next road trip. They also would make a great team snack using team colors, or as a project to keep your kids busy on rainy days at home. What occasion will you celebrate with snack necklaces?
