Everyone knows that leprechauns hide their gold at the end of a rainbow. So, we decided to make some edible rainbow necklaces in honor of St. Patrick's Day next week. We used fruity Cheerios because I thought they were a little healthier than Froot Loops. Either work just fine. I showed my kids how to make a rainbow pattern and they got straight to work. This activity was good for teaching my children about colors, patterns and also good practice for their fine motor skills. The finished product was a beautiful (and edible) cereal necklace.
