Fun Weekend and a Great Party Favor Idea! (Wrapped Candy Necklaces)

We had family in town this weekend and had a great time. 4 boy cousins together can be a bit crazy, but so much fun! Saturday we went to Circus Circus Adventuredome. If you're ever in Vegas with kids, this is the place to be. The boys had a great time and the adults had a great time as well. We ended it with a little family bumper car action! I do have to say that for a while, Cody and I were really kicking some butt!

When we were leaving, there were some people wearing really cool candy necklaces . One of the guys took his off and put it over Cody's neck. He really made his night! I was excited to have something great to blog about as well!

If goes to show, you never know where you are going to find a great idea for a post! I had to take the photos with my phone, so they are a bit blurry.

I am going to make these for party favors at our next birthday party. Just get clear cellophane wrap and put candy in the middle. Wrap it around and tie ribbon between the pieces. Then tie/tape the ends together to make a necklace. This one was made from Mike & Ike and Lemonheads. There were other ones made with rolls of Smarties and other candies. 

This is a picture after we got home. Of course it was ripped apart by then!
