Candy Lei Craft at Evelyn Meador

Asian-Pacific Heritage Month is a great time to celebrate the many cultures of the East.  To celebrate at Evelyn Meador we decided to create candy leis, inspired by the traditional craft of the Hawaiian Islands.
A lei is, most simply, any series of objects strung together to be worn, usually as a necklace.  Traditionally, flowers of various types may be chosen, but, over the years, many other types of leis have been created using any number of interesting materials, such as shells, paper money and fabric.
Candy was our material of choice for the leis for a couple of reasons. Number one is the kids always like it! Number two is that candy is a bit easier to acquire than exotic flowers, and certainly more easily disposed of!
Here is a shot of the kids hard at work.
