DIY Pre-School Activity with Dollar General Finds

Post® Honey Bunches of Oats® Frosted Cereal has brought my children together. Yes, a cereal! As a mom of a teenager and a toddler who are 13 years apart, I love to find activities they can do together. My daughter is in high school and she's taking a child development course while my son is in pre-school, learning his ABC's, numbers and shapes. It's important to me that in spite of the age and educational differences, they are able to not only spend time together, but learn together as well. Since they both love cereal, when I found the new Post® Honey Bunches of Oats® Frosted Cereal at Dollar General, I picked it up. My son will eat it with and without milk for breakfast and my daughter loves it as a before-bed snack.

We came up with a fun project that only requires a few materials, and it's a way for my daughter to teach my son his shapes. Using what she's learned in her class, she cut out basic shapes: circle, rectangle, square, triangle - and glued them to a piece of construction paper. Then, she lets my son take some Honey Bunches of Oats® flakes and glued them into the shapes, filling them in completely. We went over the shapes, talking about them and calling them out by name - all while he was snacking on them of course! This type of activity is great for eye and hand coordination in addition to developing or increasing learning skills. It also gives my children time to spend with each other while managing snack time with a cereal that is low in fat as well as cholesterol-free. With delicious frosted flakes and crunchy granola bunches, Honey Bunches of Oats® Frosted Cereal is a cereal the whole family will love!
