Cereal like Cheerios or Fruit Loops; crackers such as Goldfish or Cheez-Its; raisins or other bits of bite-sized dried fruit; thick icing, either homemade or store-bought; white paper plates
Set up a work space in an area where you won't mind creating some mess. Line up small bowls of dried cereal like Cheerios or Fruit Loops; small crackers, like Cheez-Its or Goldfish; and raisins, craisins, or other cut up bits of dried fruit. Include a bowl of icing to be used as "glue." Give your child a white paper plate and let him "glue" the various food items onto a paper plate to create a mosaic. Since almost all the materials are edible, this project is especially great for younger kids, who may be prone to putting things in their mouth.
