Cereal Box Princess Crown Kids Craft

This Cereal Box Princess Crown kids craft, sponsored by Pebbles Cereal, is as fun to play with as it is to make, which makes it the perfect craft for a rainy afternoon.

In addition to my girls having a ton of fun making and playing with this craft, I love it because all of the materials are upcycled. It’s a great way to teach kids about reusing things and also use up leftover craft supplies.

I have this habit of always removing jewels, sequins and ribbon from any old project before it gets trashed, so I always have an assorted supply of materials available for my kids to reuse. Not only does it save money, but it has saved a lot of materials from the garbage. If you don’t already have a stash of gems, buy a big bag of gems and get started reusing them on future projects.

Materials

Directions

Lay your Fruity Pebbles cereal box out flat, and use a pencil to sketch various crown patterns on the box. Use scissors to cut out the crown shapes. I was able to make approximately four crowns per cereal box.

Because the cereal boxes had writing on the inside of the box, I decided to paint the inside with white acrylic paint before giving them to the kids to decorate. I wasn’t sure if the Crayola paints would cover the printing (without two coats), and it’s no fun waiting for paint to dry. So I did this before the kids got home from school. If the box is not printed on the inside, you can skip this step.

Let kids decorate the crowns with their choice of paints. With three crowns per girl, by the time they were done painting the last crown, the first was ready to decorate.

Give kids a bottle of glue and some gems and let the imperfect perfection begin. I love watching my girls “design” each of their crowns. 

Painting Cereal Box Crowns

When everything is dry, punch holes in the ends of the crowns and tie a piece of ribbon to either end. Now the crowns can be tied onto the heads of your princesses for hours of play.

    These are adorable. I have honestly never thought to use a cereal box like this but definitely will be trying this as soon as one is empty.

  3. Those are great crowns and it’s neat that you can get 4 crowns out of one box.

    That is so cool! What a fun way to reuse cereal boxes. Think we are going to have to give this a go on a snow day this winter!

  5. This is a great idea. I am always trying to find ways to recycle and save money. This hits both of them. The kids will have a craft to do and I am recycling and saving money. Thanks for the idea. I will start saving my cereal boxes today!
