But first a little back story...
I've been a member of a mom and baby workout group (Stroller Strides) for almost 2 years now, I could get in to all the reasons why I love it, but that wasn't my original intention of this post, so that'll wait until another day. As part of the group we have a play group for the kiddos once a week. One mommy is in charge of coming up with crafts and/or activities for the kids to do after the moms finish working out. As of the end of May, I am not the new PGC (Play group captain) of our group. I LOVE my new position, I love coming up with new ideas or searching the endless crafts on Pinterest, and I love testing out the crafts with my boys.
Ok...now to the reason I started the post to begin with...a great, yummy and cheap craft to keep even the squirmiest kids busy, even if it is only for a few minutes.
Supplies: colorful circle cereal (I used fruit loops) but you could use apple jacks, cherrios, etc
A string to put the cereal on
And willing children
Check out lil' J's concentration (tongue)
Even my oldest was smiling...most likely because I had just told him he gets to eat it when he was finished.
Even D was focused and working
Yes he was excited to eat it too.
Any craft that is cheap, easy and edible has my vote anyday.
