Cranberry Stringing

Summary: An activity to keep the kids busy while you prepare the Thanksgiving or Christmas meal.

Ages: From 4 to 14

Recommended Number of Players:

1 or more pounds of fresh cranberries
One needle threaded with 18 inches of strong thread per player

Set Up:
Have the needles threaded and the cranberries in the middle of the table

How to Play:
Everyone sits around a bowl of cranberries. On the signal, the players start stringing the cranberries onto their threads.
