Eat & Play Better with Kids at Home
Did your local store run out of everything, including your kid’s favorite cereal? Why not make some of your own? Let’s face it — half of the appeal comes from the colors, and the homemade version can put you back in control of your kid’s sugar intake. Thus, win-win!
Make Your Own Fruit Loops

QK tally: 2 ingredients
- food coloring
- Ziploc bags
- spoons and bowls
- (just a little) patience
- For each color: Add 5 drops of food coloring to 2 tsp of water, and pour the solution to a Ziplock bag of Cheerios (roughly a cup). Seal the bag and shake!
- Pour the colored Cheerios onto a baking sheet (or a lined surface) to dry.
- Wait…patiently. (Perfectiming to do complete another activity!)
- After the colored Cheerios are dry, you (I mean your kids) can start mix and match to form their unique creation!
- For the extra adventurous and health-conscious, we suggest trying fruit juice instead of the food coloring water. Although to be honest, we have not tried and cannot advise on the ratio.
