Kids love cereal ... and so does everyone else! In fact, the average American eats about 160 bowls of cereal per year. Multiply that by a family of four and you are likely tossing out quite a few empty cereal boxes. Instead of throwing them in the recycling bin, upcycle them into fun games, toys and decorations for kids!

Our friends at Nick Jr., as well as a couple of our own CraftFoxes, have lots of great ideas that your family will love.
