I don’t think I have met a kid who enjoys making crafts as much as my son. He is always creating some craft on his own or asking me to work on a project together. He is even know to say “save this for a craft” whenever he is done with a bottle water. Silly boy!

So it didn’t surprise me when I was at Albertsons picking up General Mills products that are on sale until Thursday, October 13 (click here for promotional prices) and he asked if the cereal was to eat or for a craft. So naturally I had to let him use some of the Cheerios for his art projects. 

Supplies needed:
Blue, brown, green and orange construction paper

Directions for creating a Cheerio tree:
  1. Using the green paper, trim to use as grass and glue to the bottom of the blue paper.
  2. Draw a tree with branches on the brown construction paper and cut out. Then glue to the page.
  3. Using about 1/3 of the orange construction paper, cut around the bottom to make it look like the leaves. Glue to the top of the tree.
  4. Add dots of glue around the orange leaves and glue on the Cheerios.
  5. Add little pieces of orange paper and Cheerios to the bottom of the tree.

My son had so much fun doing this craft! We cut and glued the tree and orange leaves, but I think older kids that have mastered scissors could do entire craft alone. I think the best part of this project is getting to eat the cereal.   

Do you enjoy making projects and crafts with your kids?
