Do you recycle or upcycle your cereal boxes and use them for play? For today’s #junkplay prompt we had to use cereal box as a material. And we decided to play around and create an artistic and trendy rainbow purse from our cereal box!
This very easy art / craft project is awesome because even toddlers can participate with marbling part of the process. And, of course, they will love to carry around and play with a purse they created themselves!
Here are things we used to create marbled rainbow purse from cereal box:
- cereal box
- poster paint in rainbow colors (dark blue, blue, green, red, orange, yellow)
- rainbow ribbon (affiliate)
- a box for marbling (to contain the mess)
- glue / glue gun
- 2 hole puncher
