Fun Cereal Crafts

Have your kids gotten to the part of summer where they're bored yet?  If they have, how about providing them with some open ended craft fun that can serve as snack time, too?  

Miss Katie has been working on sorting by color.  I found a dot markers printable online and thought it would be perfect for cereal sorting!

Fruity Cheerios are one of the participating brands in the Big G Cereal movie promotion, so you could have some crafty fun AND get a free movie.  How awesome is that?

Katie had some greens up in the pink row, so I'm wondering if she might have a little red/green color blindness going on, or if it's just a preschooler thing.

Either way, she enjoyed this activity, and she enjoyed eating her work even more!  Plus, we can still use this page for other color sorting activities and for dot markers.  I'm fond of multi-use activities.

Once Brianna saw Katie with the cereal, she decided to make fruity necklaces.  We used satin cord, also known as "rat tail," and Brianna said it made it really easy to string the cereal.

You could suggest bracelets, too.  Or give each child an apple and some toothpicks and let them make crazy hair styles for their apples, by poking the toothpicks into the apple and then stacking cereal on the toothpicks.  This might be a fun project for Honey Nut or Chocolate Cheerios!

Special thanks to Big G Cereals for sponsoring this yummy craft!  Please click to learn about how you can get a FREE MOVIE from them.  Thank you!

  1. Yes, kids seem to love it when they can eat their homework! Apparently cereal has more uses than just for eating!

    1. Sam wanted to get into the cereal when I brought it home, and I told him NO, that's for a craft! He said, "Can I EAT THE CRAFT??" His sister suggested that the craft should involve lots of glue and maybe a couple of thumb tacks...
