A couple of weeks ago we invited our friends Rylee, Drew, and Nate over for a Movie Night stART project!  It was a lot of fun!  We first read the book, “Piggins” by Jane Yolen.  This was a little more advanced book.  It is a mystery that is fun to try to figure out.  PIggins is the family butler who works to figure out who has stolen Mrs. Reynard’s diamond necklace during a dinner party.  Will you figure out the mystery before the end of the book?

Movie Night Candy Necklaces

For our projects we didn’t make diamond necklaces, like in the book, but candy necklaces!  I found this idea on Pintrest which led me to Blondie and Brownies.  These were a big hit with the kids (even the toddler kids)!

Materials:

Choose any treats that have a hole in them to string on the necklace.

Fruit Loops

Pretzels

Gummy Rings

Lifesaver Gummies

Fudge Stripe Cookies

Baker’s Twine

I decided it would work best to put a few of each treat in a ziplock bag for each child.  I tied the bag with the baker’s twine they would use for their necklace.

Lace the twine with the candy.  When you are done tie the ends of twine together to make a necklace.
