It is nearing the end of summer and my pregnancy, and I am getting the “I am bored” looks from my kids, so I decided to come up with a couple activities using Froot Loops to keep them entertained, at least for a little while.
FYI, depending upon your child’s age, you may need to monitor them with these activities to avoid choking and making a mess of the glue. Use your best judgement.
1. Rainbow Craft -
This is a great way to teach colors and hand-eye coordination.
They are ready!
All you need is paper, glue, and Froot Loops. Plus you need to either write out the order of the colors, or use crayons to show the younger kids what order they should go in.
Then let them go to it. I had to help my 3 year old with the glue, but my 6 year old knew exactly what to do.
2. Edible Froot Loop Bracelets or Necklaces -
Again, a great way to teach hand-eye coordination.
All you need is Froot Loops and fishing line or yarn.
Let the kids string on the Froot Loops. Helpful hint: Tie the bottom Fruit Loop to the string so the others don’t fall off.
The reward of course is eating the bracelet.
3. Counting the O s -
This is a great way to teach numbers and hand-eye coordination.
All you need is to print off these sheets at First- School.ws , crayons, and Froot Loops. I use First School as a resource for kids activities all the time.
Have them color the sheets first, trace the numbers or words, and then count out the number of Froot Loops they are learning.
Again, the reward is, they can eat them.
4. The Froot Loop Toss Game -
All you need is markers, some type of container or containers, and Froot Loops.
I used some packing material I received (FYI, a great way to up-cycle), but you can use cups or other containers and just color code them with either the markers or strips of paper.
The object of the game is to try to land as many of the Froot Loops into the correct color. Who ever gets the most, receives a reward. In our case, we used 10 Froot Loops for each child and the winner got the left over Froot Loops that I had poured into the cups.
The kids had a great time with all of these, and hopefully you will find them entertaining as well! Of course the best part of these activities for the kids was they got to eat as they played!
