These cereal mosaics are such a fun way to make art with the kids!
Last year my son’s class decorated gingerbread houses, and one of the decorations was Froot Loops – that really sweet “fruit” flavored o-shaped cereal. He was so excited to see the coloured version that he begged me to buy some next time we were in the grocery store. But back at home, he wasn’t impressed, and stuck with the regular brown ones. I must confess I was actually feeling rather smug that he rejected the super sweet version! Since then they’ve remained untouched in the cupboard – although we did use some for making “R is for Rainbow” when we were making alphabet crafts for my latest book, 50 Alphabet Crafts for Little Kids. You can see it here on the front cover!
It felt like a waste to ditch the rest of them – but they were going stale and so I decided we should use them for more art and craft projects. I made four mosaic templates: a flower, fish, house and butterfly, using outline pics from Clker.com. You can download the mosaic versions for free from my Craftulate Store.
For something more permanent you could glue the cereal into place.Cereal Mosaics with Fruit Rings - with free printable templates Click To Tweet
