Cereal Box Art - Materials and Equipment

How silly of me; my grandsons and I made a hand puppet out of some left over boxes and I totally forgot to take pictures of them.

It was great fun though and quickly done. All you need is cereal or, as in our case, other small boxes, some craft glue, a pair of scissors and colored craft paper.

We made an elephant and a cat and this cheap project was a ton of fun for the boys. They played with it all day. There is a wealth of ideas and examples for all kinds of projects made from cereal boxes online and you will find instructions, videos and examples in no time.

Make puzzles out of them or glue several of the boxes together for larger projects like totem poles or trees and (spray) paint them.

Another option is to cover the boxes with beads, yarn, or other items you can glue on and make a treasure box out of them.

If you cut the front out of the box, line it with paper or fabric, you have a unique shadow box.

There are options galore and it is fun for the entire family!
