The Many Uses of Cheerios

 My Organized Chaos hosting a giveaway for a very fun book, The Cheerios Play Book.

I started thinking about the many uses of Cheerios. Here's what I've used them for: 
  1. Finger Food! The plain or MultiGrain Cheerios are healthier then many of the finger foods on the market.
  2. Potty Targets! Trying to teach your son to aim for the toilet? Drop a Cheerio in, and it acts as a target.
  3. Edible Bracelets. My preschooler can string Cheerios to make a bracelet. This is great for hand eye coordination. 
  4. Artwork. You saw the photo/illustration on the cover of the book. Use Cheerios to enhance a child's drawing. 
Any other Cheerio idea's? I'd love to hear them!

Thanks for the ideas for cheerios. Making bracelets is a cute idea.
