Wilton and A Crafting Day

I know with the colder weather coming up, it means much more time spent indoors with your children.  With twin 3 yr old boys it makes it hard when they are so full of energy and you cannot let them out to play.  The past few days have been so rainy here and I was scrambling to find something to do with them, that would occupy at least one hour of the day.  Finding small crafts for toddlers is sometimes a challenge but I ran across a really cute one at Walmart the other day.

Wilton the famous cake decorating and candy making supply company had these really cute Halloween candy necklaces that kids can put together and they were only $3.99, so I thought I would give them a try.  The boys had a blast and had even more fun eating them!  It is a nice little project to do with kids ages 3 and up, and they may need a little help.  But stringing on the candy beads is also a great way to develop those fine motor skills.

Check out our crafting day!!

    Those are really cute. You have so much more patience than I do with my 3yo’s. I have done very few crafts with them because I am afraid my head would explode. LOL

    As a mom of twin boys, I can totally attest to it being rough keeping them in all day. Mine are only 2, so I can just imagine when they are 3 and even more hyper! This is a great idea and it look like they enjoyed it. Thanks!

    How long did it take to make the necklace, my kids would eat all the candy before it was eaten
