This was super easy and the kids really enjoyed it! I made them for snack today... Only change I made was to use skittles instead of red hots! I'm sure we will be making these on a regular basis! Thanks for posting!

A good, simple craft for the small fry. Keeps them just busy enough, just long enough. And fun to eat, too. Thanks for the cute recipe!
