Kids will love these beautiful homemade shades decorated with Cheerios® cereal - ready in just 20 minutes.

Ingredients

Ruler
Pencil
1
sheet of craft foam (12x8 1/2 inch)
Scissors
Paper hole punch
2
pipe cleaners
Glue
Cheerios™ cereal

Steps

  • 1 Measure from the center of one of your child's eyes to the center of the other eye with the ruler. Use this measurement to make 2 dots with the pencil in the center of the craft foam the same distance apart as your child's eyes.
  • 2 Draw a 3 1/2-inch shape around each dot for the frames of the glasses. Draw a 1 1/2-inch circle inside each shape for the eye holes. Draw a 1/2-inch-wide strip connecting the 2 shapes. Cut out the frames of the glasses along the lines.
  • 3 Punch holes on either side of the frames with the hole punch. Twist a pipe cleaner onto each hole to create earpieces for the shades.
  • 4 Spread glue on the front of frames and decorate with the cereal. Let stand until dry.
