cheerios christmas crafts This party activity was inspired by Make and Takes who made a Fruit Loop Christmas Garland with her children.

After seeing Marie's project I had an idea to make up craft kits for a Christmas party we are attending.  The children can make bracelets, Christmas tree ornaments, necklaces or garlands.  There will be a lot of assorted craft activities at the party so I thought that if the children didn't have time to do this one, they could at least take the kit home to complete it.

What you need:

  • Yarn
  • Cheerios (I used yogurt burst)
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Sticker printer paper
  • Small candy bags & ties
  • Small gift bags

How to make:

  • Make a sample of each item and take a photograph
  • I used Picnik to edit the photograph and add in the type.
  • Print the photograph onto sticker printer paper and affix to the gift bag.
  • Fill a small bag with Cheerio's and tie so they don't spill.
  • Cut various lengths of yarn so children can decide which project they would like to make
  • Type up a tip sheet and print.
  • Put everything into the bag and fold over the top so nothing falls out.

Great activity!I wonder if this activity would make a great car traveling activity. Probably depends on the parents’ attitude towards an explosion of Cheerios in the car! 🙂 (I think I might give it a try!)

Isn’t it a fun project? We’ve done this in the past with Fruit Loops and licorice rope. The kids spent more time eating than actually making the bracelets.
