DIY candy lei

It is almost time for our kids to graduate preschool, kindergarten, etc. I know I know there is a graduation for every grade, so how do we congratulate them for accomplishing this without going broke?   Well we make candy leis.

All kids love candy, so this is one of my favorite things to do for them. And we have decided to share how we make these with you.

First you need to gather all your supplies:

  • Saran Wrap
  • Ribbon
  • Candy
  • Scissors

Next we measured how long we wanted to make these by using some of the ribbon to measure our kids necks.

Then you will lay out your Saran Wrap.

We put this adorable graduation ribbon on top of the Saran Wrap (make sure to lay it facing down) then topped it with candy and some toys.

Next you will roll up your Saran Wrap and then tie your ribbon around the candy.

Then we curled the ribbon with our scissors.

Last you want to tie your ends together.

And there you have it… 

you can also add extras to make it even more adorable.

How cute are those graduation glasses from dollar tree?!?

For this of you who are wondering how you will be able to make these while being a parent, well we just took our supplies and some pizza and went to the park to make these, the kids were fed and happy and we were able to make our candy leis.

It helps that it was such a beautiful day outside.

We also made this extra extra long candy lei for a family member who requested one and said they have a larger neck πŸ˜‰ I think he will like it.

So there you have it, a simply graduation gift, you can also give these as birthdays gifts.
