I also came up with some fun holiday-themed Christmas ornament ideas for kids, like The Grinch, Santa, and Santa’s Belly. Hands down though my abstract art Cereal Ornaments were the crowd-pleaser. I think it’s the fact that the kids have full control over exactly which color they are using.

My daughter Esuun loves that she can pick all of her favorite colors for her ornament. My oldest daughter loves the unknown of what it will turn out as when she mixes in all the colors. The possibilities of how this ornament will look are endless.

To start with each of these crafts, have your kids help you separate the different colors of Froot Loops cereal. It didn’t take as long as some people would like to say. It didn’t take me long to sort out enough cereal for my girls and me to do this craft. I do suggest that you play some holiday music to help keep the holiday spirits up and excited for the next task!

Cereal Ornament Tips

  • Please read through all of the instructions for each ornament.
  • **Sealing the top of the ornament with glue is optional but reccomended**
  • Not every ornament needs the cereal to be crushed before creating.
  • Opt for Tacky glue for this project, it dries faster!
  • Come prepared with extra decorations, ribbons, bows, glitter, you get the idea.

To make 1 abstract cereal art ornament, after you have separated the cereal add about 1/2 cup of each color to individual sandwich bags. Crush the cereal using a rolling pin or the blunt side of an object. Crush the cereal until it is about the consistency of sand.

Crush the Cereal

Using a piping bag, snip the end of the tip with enough room to help funnel the cereal into the ornament. Slowly add each color your child wants until the cereal reaches the top of the ornament. Please note if your child wants to keep the exact design, the ornament must be packed before you seal the lid.

Use a Piping Bag or Ziplock Bag

Santa is a breeze to make, perfect for the younger ones who want to get involved yet not get their hands dirty. Simply fill the ornament with whatever color cereal your child wants Santa to be. Esuun picked the color orange for her Santa Cereal ornament. *Please Do Not Crush The Cereal, Keep Whole!*

Using small white pom poms, or cotton balls glue three rows of his beard. Glue on some googly eyes to make sure Santa is able to watch all the Christmas cheer on Christmas day. The Santa Hat is very easy, to start you will take a small white pipe cleaner and wrap it around the top of the ornament.

Repeat this same step using the red but do not coil it too tight. Glue on a small white pom-pom and let it sit to dry. Once dry connect the two pipe cleaners by wrapping them together or by gluing them together.

This easy Grinch Cereal Ornament is made up of just one color, green.  To represent the Grinch’s two sizes too small heart, I used a small red pom-pom and glued it to where his heart would be. I made the Santa hat using the same method as I did with the Santa Ornament.
