When I was asked to host a party for kids where they got to try a brand new cereal and then make art projects with it, I jumped at the chance!

Kellogs sent me a box of goodness with a couple of boxes of the new Rice Krispies Mult-Grain Shapes cereal, a few individual cups, and some craft supplies for our party.

Our house is the hang-out spot for kids. So, having a house full of kids for the afternoon was not a big deal, and convincing them to come try a new cereal wasn’t hard either.

For our party we had 8 children. Most were 6 or 7 in grades 1 and 2, and there were 2 girls and 5 boys.

They couldn’t wait to dig into the individual cups !

Knowing that eyes are usually bigger than stomachs at that age, I gave each child his own individual cup of the Multi-Grain Shape cereal as well as a bowl and spoon. The kids poured a small amount of cereal into the bowl and had it with milk, while snacking on the remainder. This way they could try the cereal both wet and dry.

The cereal was a big hit for most of the kids.

“I like it!”

“Two thumbs up!”

“I like it both ways – wet and dry!”

My husband liked it a lot – not just because it has 110 calories per cup! I think he snacked on it just as much as the kids.

The kids who weren’t keen on the cereal, turns out – they don’t like any cereal!

I showed the children a few samples that I had created to get their creative juices flowing.

Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Multi-Grain Shapes come in four shapes: stars, fish, trees and “me” (mini people). However, the shapes are also indistinct enough that with imagination, they become other shapes.
A fish becomes a rocket, stars become flowers and the trees become leaves!

At first, the children were a bit at a loss of what to make. It made me realize that children aren’t given the opportunity enough to design their own projects, and more often are asked to follow step-by-step instructions.

By the end of the afternoon we had an art gallery of amazing creations! There were seascapes, igloos, rockets, volcanoes, whales, and battle scenes!
