If the weather permits, head outside and tie up enough snacks for your whole group, or stay indoors and tie your strings to a broom and have two adults hold it out limbo style. Don't believe me that it's fun yet. Stop for a second and look up above your head to an imaginary apple on a string and then pretend to bite it. I bet you're giggling at the thought of ten 10 year olds doing it all at the same time!
Other fun snacks on a string can be something with less of a choking hazard, working well for smaller children, such as: cotton candy, marshmallows and popcorn balls. A skewer can be a big help in getting your string or yarn through your food, or simply tie it around if the shape of the food permits.
It's a typically inexpensive way to make everyone laugh and keep everyone occupied at the same time if needs be! Party on!
