Years ago, when my oldest boy was in kindergarten, he came home sporting a Fruit Loop Necklace. It was his classroom’s 100th day of school and they had all strung 100 fruit loops into a necklace.

The kids grouped colors into groups of ten to make their fruit loop necklace. What a fun and perfect idea for 100 Days of School.

But, because it’s a rainbow of colors, it’s also a wonderful idea for St. Patrick’s Day! If you are planning a St. Patrick’s Day dinner with kids involved, set out a basket of fruit loops, and some string for a fun St. Patrick’s Day craft.

Instructions for A Rainbow Fruit Loop Necklace…

  • Tie a loose knot on one end of the baker’s twine – this keeps the fruit loops from sliding off
  • *Another tip is to tape the knotted end to the table so the fruit loops can’t escape. This also helps hold the twine in place
  • Wrap a small piece of clear tape around the other end and pinch it into – sort of- a needlepoint, so it will fit easily into the center of a fruit loop
  • Have kids sort the fruit loops into groups of ten by sliding ten of each color onto the necklace
  • *If this is a “100 Days of school” project, don’t stop until there are 10 groups of 10 on the necklace
  • Help kids tie the end of the twine when they have finished
  • Let them wear their activity and snack on it 🙂
