Here's what we made at the preschool last week.
My friends from India are never without a variety of peppers hanging in their kitchen ready for adding instant spice to their very flavorful cooking. I've always thought they looked so pretty and last week while at the Farmer's Market I came across a huge basket of chili peppers and knew I wanted to try this project with the kids.
With a needle and thread (preferably upholstery or silk thread-something strong) I used fish line since that's what I had on hand. It's very important to string the peppers through the green stem at the very top. That keeps the spicy juice off little fingers and also preserves the peppers. It takes just minutes to string enough for a pretty hanging. To the kids swags I added this note for the parents. Use as a festive fall decoration or hang in the kitchen and once the peppers have dried crush them as needed to add a little spice to your cooking. The kids were thrilled and they do make such a nice fall decoration.
