Say hello to fun breakfasts! I know my kids can get bored pretty easily with the same breakfast every day so we try to change it up whenever we can. Pancakes. Eggs. Yogurt. Cereal and fruit. Surprising kids with some breakfast fun is always sure to make them smile too, especially when it’s back to school time.
Who doesn’t love some Fruity Pebbles every now and then?? I remember what a treat it was to have Fruity or Cocoa Pebbles when I was little too.
No dinosaur jokes, please. 😉
Fortunately we have a Walgreens right around the corner so it’s always easy to pop in and grab anything we might be missing – like those mornings you realize you are out of milk. Yes, we’ve done that. Oops!
Even better than breakfast fun are hands-on, kid friendly recipes that are easy to make too. The kids and I debated on what fun treat we could create. We talked about making Fruity Pebbles cookies but, in the end, we thought it would be super fun to make a layered Fruity Pebbles Parfait and it was a BLAST!
We started out by sorting the Fruity Pebbles by color into little cups. The boys were so excited about this part and they worked as a great team. And yes, some got eaten along the way. 😉
While my boys are a little bit older, sorting by color is a fantastic way to strengthen fine motor skills in pre-schoolers so this is really fun for all ages.
Once all the colors were sorted, Littlest made sure everything was arranged to layer the parfait. He absolutely loves to cook and bake so he kind of took over at this point! We used vanilla yogurt between the colorful layers of Fruity Pebbles.
They had so much fun that they even asked if we could do this at their next birthday party with their friends. Sounds like an easy and fun party activity to me! He wanted to top if off with a little mix of all the colors.
And the most fun part?
Eating it all up! 🙂 There are endless possibilities for using cereal in fun treats. What fun ideas do you have to create a fun Fruity Pebbles dessert with your kids? I’d love to hear all about it!
