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.

For an older crowd, this variation is more difficult. Have the players alternate threading cranberries with popcorn. The winner must have the pattern perfect.
