My two little boys get more excited about science experiments than crafts but every now and then a fun idea will make them want to join me in a creative challenge. Take this spring craft, for instance, I managed to combine three elements they love: a nature walk, painting and a delicious snack like the Post cereals. They couldn’t resist it and had to give me a helping hand in crafting these simple and adorable flowers made out of twigs and cereals.
TWIG AND CEREAL CRAFT
What you need
- cereals (we used Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds and Honey Bunches of Oats Honey Roasted)
- blue and green paint
- hot glue gun
- colorful card stock or scrapbook paper
Steps to follow
- Deconstruct the cereal boxes and cut out the front and back. You’ll use them as canvas for your craft
- Use blue paint to paint the sky and green for the grass
- Glue the twigs to the cardboard with your hot glue gun
- Make flowers from cereals and glue them on the cardboard, close to the twigs
- Make a fence out of colorful card stock or scrapbook paper and glue it next to the twigs
We started this craft with a nature walk and because we have several big trees in the park right behind our house, finding twigs was an easy task for the boys. Then my oldest helped me paint the background of our canvas and when the paint dried, I glued the twigs on. When I took out the cereals to make the flowers, their faces lit up and I knew I had to finish the craft all by myself as they were too busy stuffing their faces with cereals.
This craft is a fun and creative way to bring together nature elements and food art. I really enjoyed working on it.
Here I am using the new Honey Bunches of Oats Gluten Free Chocolate to design more flowers. We are an allergy free family but this is not the first time I buy gluten free cereals. As long as it tastes great I don’t mind the lack of gluten and let me tell you that these cereals are absolutely delicious. Frankly they were my favorite out of the three types of Post cereals. It must be the chocolate!
Because this craft uses nature elements, it can make a great Earth Day activity.
Next time you’re at Walmart, check out the cereal aisle and get Post cereals for a yummy snack and a fun craft. You may also want to try Kung Fu Panda Po Power Crunch, which is a new product available in Walmart.
What craft would you create with your cereals? I’d love to hear your ideas.
