Thread cereal such as Fruity Cheerios, Fruit Loops, or similar onto the floss.
Tie the ends in a regular bow and store in a zip top bag.
When ready to use, untie the bow and tie in a knot around your child's neck, wrist, etc.
Enjoy the craft that is fun to wear and not so bad to eat as a snack. Good to take along for grocery shopping trips! Some kids may be able to make these themselves, while the younger ones will probably need help.

Editor's Note: Be careful about placing these necklaces around very young children's necks, to avoid accidents. Bracelets would be a better choice for younger children, especially under three.

Bad idea, young children cannot tell the difference between edible & none edible & may choke on the real thing thinking it too was candy etc.
I used to do this when my children were babies and it kept them quiet in church. Iused long , clean shoelaces. It was easier on their skin. The dental floss, I imagine could be hard on delicate baby skin.
