Mom is 85 years old with mid-stage dementia and lives with me. Last night did this with mom and it was a hit. We took brightly colored Fruit Loop type cereal and strung it on sting with a knot tied at the end. Today I will put them out for the birds to eat somewhere where mom can see them from a window. An easy version of stringing popcorn because the hole is already in the cereal. We had fun! If you try it I hope you and your LO do as well We snacked on them while stringing LOL Beh! I don't like Fruit Loops or other sweetened cereal but grabbed a big bag of store brand ones thinking the colors would be a good idea for introducing the activity and fun for Christmas. In the future I think we will use store brand of O's - like Cheerios - much better for snacking than the sweet one and better for the birds too! Since she enjoyed this I am thinking stringing beads to make necklaces might be a good winter craft. Any other suggestions? I have a picture of the strung cereal but don't see how to post it.
