• 1 level tbsp icing sugar, sifted
  • 50 g popping corn
  • 50 g raspberries
  • 1 coloured ribbon spool
  • 4 dried ready-to eat apricots, cut into pieces (optional)


  1. 1

    Pour the icing sugar in a large bowl. Place a pan over a high heat until very hot. Add the popcorn to the pan and put on the lid. Shake the pan around for 30 seconds or so. Switch off the heat.

  2. 2

    The heat of the pan should finish off the popcorn. When the popping has subsided, remove the lid. Add the popcorn to the bowl and stir well.

  3. 3

    To colour the popcorn, push the raspberries through a tea strainer or sieve, and collect the juice. Put a teaspoon of this into a bowl, add half of the popcorn and stir to colour all over.

  4. 4

    Cut a length of thread to fit around your child's neck. Using a large, sterilised darning needle, thread the coloured and plain popcorn on alternately. Also intersperse with dried fruit, if desired.
