Healthy Snack Necklaces

Sometimes I get these ideas and think, "I'm a genius!" Then I look online, see that several other people have already thought of it long ago, and hear a Fat Amy voice in my head saying, "Mmmm, not really. Nice try though." Ha Ha Ha!
So , I guess what I'm saying is that these snack necklaces are not an original idea of mine. It's been done...and redone. But as far as I know, they've never been done the way I specifically make them!
I don't want my boys to be all sugared up for my mental sake. I decided that fresh fruits and veggies wouldn't work so well. Then BAM! I thought, "Why don't I use my dried fruit snacks?" My boys love to snack on the dried fruit that we have as part of my food storage that we've purchased from Thrive. Super yummy stuff! Don't add water...just eat. If you're interested in learning more about Thrive, my friend Natalie is a consultant, so you can go check out what Thrive has to offer.
The other thing I thought of doing that I haven't seen done before is using floss instead of string. I'm a lucky mom and my boys love to floss. :) I tied one end of the floss to a clean needle and we poked our way through the dried fruit and cheerios.

My boys LOVED them!!! They didn't last long. :)

Now you can make a healthy snack necklace for your kiddos to munch on during movie nights, church, and maybe even the Fourth of July festivities. I know I will. They'll be getting some necessary servings of fruits and you'll get to avoid the sugar highs and inevitable crashes. Win win!
