Turn breakfast cereal into edible sand art – perfect for decorating cupcakes.
Hey Everyone! It’s Kara from A Kailo Chic Life, and today I wanted to share a fun activity that my kids and I recently played around with. We turned flavored colorful cereal into edible sand art cupcakes. Not only did the kids enjoy decorating the cupcakes with all the colors (and of course eating the cupcakes), but they really had a fun time sorting the cereal by colors into different bowls. Who knew cereal sorting could be so fun?!
To begin you will want to get your hand on any brand of fruity colored cereal. Then let your kids have some fun sorting all the cereal by colors into separate bowls. Not only doesn’t it give you a break, but the kids have fun while working on their sorting skills.
Once you have about one cup of each color of cereal sorted out, add one color of cereal at a time to your food processor and pulse until it is fine crumbs. Then move on to your next color until they are all in crumbs.
The final step is to let your kids get creative and decorate some freshly iced cupcakes (or cookies, or pancakes, or pudding cups, etc…).
What’s more fun that sand art you can eat?! What a perfect way to celebrate the last day of school and the start of summer! I hope you enjoyed this edible sand art cupcake activity. Feel free to check out my blog, A Kailo Chic Life, for even more crafts, recipes, and DIY projects.
