Pot of Gold Cereal St Patrick's Day Crafts
- Black Construction Paper
- Green Construction Paper
- Corn Pops Cereal
Directions:1. Draw and cut out a pot out of the black construction paper.
2. Glue the pot onto the green (or any color) construction paper.
3. Glue Corn Pops cereal on top of the pot to look like gold nuggets.
My son glued a few pieces of cereal at the bottom of the pot too. He said that there were so many pieces of gold in his pot that it began overflowing and falling out.
4. Write your name on the center of the pot and trace over it with glue.
5. Sprinkle glitter on top of the glue and let the glue dry.
6. Shake the excess glitter off the paper.
Extend The Learning:While creating this St. Patrick's Day craft, your child will practice skills such as cutting, but you can also incorporate learning activities too:
- Read books to learn all about St. Patrick's Day and Ireland.
- Before gluing the pieces of Corn Puff cereal onto the paper, have your child practice counting the pieces. My son grouped the pieces into groups and learned how to count by 5's and 10's.
- After making the craft, hide the pot of gold and give your child directions on how to find it.
