Cheerios has been a kid's favorite for years. Thank goodness it is also has healthy and it is perfect for toddlers to adults and everyone in between. It's also perfect for making edible crafts. Keep in mind that edible crafts will always be a great hit at kids birthday parties.
You can use cheerios with stale bread or toast to make a home-made bird feeder. This inexpensive bird feeder is a wonderful way to help your child invite birds into the yard. You can also use cheerios to make a Christmas garland or a edible necklace that your child can nibble on!
Here is a great activity for young kids who are still learning how to spell or write their names. Have the child write their name with large letters (or write it for them if they can't do it yet). Then have the child glue Cherrios all along each letter's stroke. This will be fun but it will also allow the child to stare at their name for a long time, which will help them memorize the letters in their names.
This is an easy, yet fun craft to make. If you can get your kids to do this craft without eating all the craft materials (aka fruit loops), you will be very lucky. It is very easy, just have your kids glue colorful fruit loops in a half-circle arches to make up a rainbow. A rainbow is made up of colors in this order (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet). For the sake of this craft you can use Purple instead of Indigo and Violet. I hope your rainbow turns out wonderfully.
