So your at Walt Disney World and the lines are long. You standing there with your family along with a very antsy child. He or she is climbing on everything, hanging on the chains, and generally don’t want to be in line.
For many families this is a reality. For my family last January this was all to true. Until..
One of my good friends, and fan to Chip and Company, Shelly shared with my little one a simple but effective item to keep her busy in line. Not only did it keep her busy it helped clean her teeth and put a little extra food in her belly.
The secret is something very simple and I am sure is in almost every parents home in the US. What Shelly did was take pieces of Dental Floss and strung Cherrios & Fruit Loops through to make pretty kid size necklaces. She said the possibilities are endless!
You could use plain dental floss or any flavor you like. The same goes with the cereal just as long as it has a hole in the center. Shelly had a ziplock back full of different flavored necklaces.
When Shelly gave my little one this necklace she just stood in line and was a perfect little angel while she munched on her necklace. It was so wonderful and became the lifesaver of the trip, before then we had a hard time keeping busy with toys, games and what not.
So next time your at Walt Disney World or Disneyland try this little trick out and see if it makes for a happy toddler like it did for me!
P.S – Thanks Shelly for sharing this with us!!!
