Playing with your food is always fun. In that regard, this Fruit Loop Fall Tree Craft is the best kind of fall craft!
Now that I have a newborn baby, I’m beginning to gather a list of crafts for the littler ones, because he’ll be finger grasping and sorting colors in no time. I love that this Fruit Loop Fall Tree Craft not only uses a delicious cereal that a tyke can pop in his mouth, but it’s also a great fine motor activity as well as a way to teach about the change of seasons. And the colors of the Fruit Loops are already very fall-inspired.
It’s a rather simple craft. You’ll need a sheet of white cardstock, a brown marker, and Fruit Loops cereal. You might also need glue if you want to make your tree a permanent seasonal decoration. I think it’s fun to shuffle the color loops around the drawn circles placements on the tree, though.
- white cardstock
- brown marker
- Fruit Loops cereal
- glue (optional)
Start by drawing a fall tree on white cardstock with the brown marker. If they’re old enough, let the child draw the tree on their own. I then drew circles around the branches where the Fruit Loops “leaves” would go. This way it would be easier for the little ones and it would work more on fine motor, too.
Then, move the colors of the Fruit Loops around the tree, placing the loops on the circles.
Use glue to secure, if desired. A smattering of Fruit Loops at the base of the tree make for “fallen leaves”, too.
Yum and done! This Fruit Loop Fall Tree Craft is so colorful and a perfect craft for the season, not to mention a yummy way to snack, too. Be sure to check out more fun fall crafts and recipes at Our Kid Things!
