This was so easy! I got the idea off of the blog TheIdeaRoom.
They were very fun, but Max kept raiding our stash.
I have a little craft tool kit that I used the sturdy needle out of to do this project. I also used another needle like punch tool to start the holes in the jelly beans. Since Lily chose large jelly beans I think this made it possible for her to thread them without frustration or injury.
