Physical Challenge:
  • Cereal box
  • Drink
  • Markers or crayons
  • Modge Podge, a clear non-toxic sealant
  • Paint brush
  • Straw or water bottle with a straw attachment
Before the kids are around, prepare cut out flower shapes from a cereal box.

The flower needs to be about four inches across.

Then punch a hole in the middle of the flower that is the same size as your child's straw.


Encourage the kids to decorate the flowers any way they'd like.
They can use markers, crayons, paint or any other art supplies.

Paint the flowers with a sealant to keep the art from running.
Modge Podge looks like white glue but dries clear.

Enjoy your sipper!

It makes the drink even more fun!

This is a good activity as part of the Bird Picnic.
