How-to-Make-Rainbow-Edible-Necklace

Whether it’s a rainy day or if you’re looking for something fun to do with the kids, this rainbow edible necklace craft is so easy and fun to make. It’s also too cute to eat but is, in fact, edible and made out of fruit cereal and marshmallows. We just used basic string for this craft but if you wanted to, you could use a sturdier string found at a craft store.

These rainbow edible necklaces are not only a fun craft to make with the kids but could also be bagged up and handed out at classroom parties, party favors, or even a craft to do at a birthday party. It’s also great for teaching the kids to color sort as they go. Learn how to make it with the instructions below.
