This travel activity for kids is great way to pass the time while on the move, which will also give small kids a chance to practice their small motor skills. Children will enjoy threading the necklaces or bracelets and then eating their finished masterpieces! This project is generally suitable for age 3+; however, when you use foods without a hole in the middle—such as popcorn—a needle is required, and this project is recommended for ages 6+ with adult assistance.
