St. Patrick’s Day Froot Loop Rainbow Craft

We’ve moved our blog! Check it out here: http://blog.vickybarone.comstPaddyFruitLoop_final

My four-year-old Oliver has been home sick this week filling up on movies (aka Thomas and Friends on repeat) and soup. As he gets spurts of energy, we’ve been giving him easy projects to hold his attention.

We saw a similar rainbow craft for St. Patrick’s Day on Pinterest and thought we’d try our own. Nothing says sick day like sugar cereal and Elmer’s glue.

Here’s what we started with:

We originally used the foam brush to spread the glue across the paper, but found that nixing the brush and simply squeezing glue lines was easier and more effective.

Oliver loved sorting the Froot Loops and squeezing the glue all over the paper, Jackson Pollock style.

All in all it was a successful craft and no glue-soaked Froot Loops were consumed. Most likely because we told Ollie that the cereal tasted like mulch and he wouldn’t like it. “But it smells like strawberries!”

We cut the project short after the glue dried, but you can embellish your rainbows with a pot of gold and some cotton ball clouds!

P.S. Oliver wanted to participate in the writing of this blog post (as I type it up on the floor of the living room with The Muppet Movie playing in the background). Here are his thoughts:
