the opinions, creative thinking, and ideas are all mine
Cereal. Many people assume that cereal is just for breakfast. While this is one use; and probably the most popular one. There are so many other ways to use cereal. Cereal is perfect for busy families. Here we will share our top 5 ways busy parents can use cereal. I always have cereal on hand. What types we have on hand is constantly changing, but there is always cereal in the cupboard.
Honeycomb cereal suggests that thinking big is not big enough. Classics never go out of style and Honeycomb is always a breakfast’s best friend, but it also can go a lot further than a breakfast table. Unique hexagonal shapes with big honey flavor, this sweetened corn cereal is an ultimate favorite of kids and adults.
Here are some of our ideas to “Think Biggerer” about Honeycomb Breakfast Cereal
I am notorious for grabbing my kids, a couple of diapers, wipes and heading out for a full day of errands, without snacks. For instances like this, I keep a couple of small containers of cereal in my bag. Cereal won’t last forever obviously but, I can keep it in there for a few days and know that I am covered when I end up with kids saying they are hungry in the back of the car and more errands to run.
Homemade cereal bars are very easy to make and can be packaged for grab-and-go type snacks. Plus, they also help you slow down just a bit and make some amazing memories with your kids while you make them.
Last Minute Dinner
We keep it on hand for several reasons but, the most common one is because we are often getting home way too late due to extra curricular activities. Sometimes we don’t pull into the driveway until well after 7 pm! That is too late to start making a full dinner. However, Honeycomb’s one-of-a-kind big shape and big honey flavor are sure to brighten up any after school meal.
Instead of spending the extra money on bread crumbs you can use cereal in its place. The cereal and canister of bread crumbs are about the same price, but you get a ton more cereal for what you are paying. Corn flake type cereals are the most commonly used ones but, get creative. Let the kids go to town crunching them up, add your seasonings and you are ready to go. These can be used for chicken, pork anything you want to coat.
Many cereal boxes have an open center. This is perfect for working on small motor skills with your toddlers or just plain old entertainment for your older kids. One of our favorite things to do is to make cereal necklaces. No need to buy extra art supplies. Just fill a bowl with cereal and give your kids a piece of string or pipe cleaner and let them string it together. This should keep them busy long enough to prep dinner. Then, use the necklaces as a snack that night.
There are so many ways you can use cereal especially if you are busy (like most of us are). Be creative with it as it is super budget friendly.
