What you need:
*string, heavy thread or yarn (I used colored thread)
*empty cereal box or cardboard
*paint, crayons or pretty paper
*white glue and/or glue stick
*cereal with holes like ohs or fruit loops
*uncooked noodles like rigatoni instead of cereal
Don't let my list limit you! You can mix it up and use pasta AND cereal AND beads if you have them. Looping the thread through each piece twice will keep it anchored in one spot creating a gap between other pieces. You can even paint the pieces once you're done!
