This activity goes so well with the theme of beading, the kids love doing it, it is such a fun and easy activity and it becomes a inexpensive and beautiful lootbag for them to bring home.
Below are instructions for candy kabob making.
• Gummy candy
• Bamboo skewers
• Clear cellophane bags (I used 4×6 bags from michaels.)
Place the gummy candies into bowls and place in the middle of the table. Set up a skewer at each child's spot, have nametags ready so that the kabobs can be labeled with they are completed.
Have each child place the candies onto the skewer, pressing the candies 2/3 down the skewer. Alternate styles, sizes, flavors, and/or colors.
Make sure that the children are careful with the bamboo skewers. One of the ends is very sharp and the children may poke themselves if they are not careful. Keep placing the candies on until the skewer is 2/3 full, all the way to the top on one end.
