My kids absolutely loved making froot loop art.
The first thing I did was set my kids to sorting fruit loops.
Then, I took the fruit loops to the Cuisinart. If you do not have a food processor, no worries. Just pour them into a bag and pound it out by hand with a kitchen mallet.
You now have turned your Froot Loops into a fine powder for making art.
All you do now is glue and sprinkle the colors on. You do this a lot like you’d apply glitter. Sprinkle it in the spots you want and then dump the rest back in the bowl. I ended up doing most of the gluing for the artwork, but Abby was able to do a bit, and I know they’ll be able to do even more as they get older. They had fun even if I was in charge of the glue.
Wow, simple, cheap, and lots of fun! Chapeau mama Jodi 🙂
Unfortunately we don’t have the fruit loops in the Netherlands 🙁 but I will look for an alternative.
I leave the cereal whole and make a rainbow then cover it with saran wrap and place on stiff card. this gives children a nice activity to take home
Great idea. So much fun.
Look sooo pretty!!
But I have one silly qn.. Will the art piece attract ants or cockroaches? Think it will look to pretty to be thrown away after that..
I don’t know. Good question. I don’t save a lot, to be honest. We made them, displayed them and then threw them away. I wonder if you could Mod Podge over them or use some other sealant to preserve them a bit more. Might be worth trying. Thanks for commenting and adding your thoughts.
