My kids are out of town for a few days, and I want to surprise them with a fun breakfast when they get back.
I went by Walmart to buy cereal and it led to, the purchase of new bowls, utensils, storage containers and serving ware.
I know I’m not the only one who goes to Walmart and does that. I went in to grab some cereal for the week and one thing led to another. I left the store with some new kitchen goodies and a fun idea to store the cereal.
To store each box of cereal, I used a Ball® 6 cup Wide Mouth Jar which holds about a full box of cereal.
Transferring the cereal to the jars is simple, and it looks cuter on the the table than a bunch of cereal boxes.
Since I knew I’d be using glass jars I chose cereals with fun shapes, colors and flavors.
I used Trix minis, Cocoa Puffs, Honey Nut Cheerios and Reese’s Puffs because they’d look pretty in the jars and they had toys in them.
All of the boxes filled the
jars perfectly except for the Trix and Reese’s Puffs. There were about
one bowl worth of cereal left in those boxes.
I couldn’t decide whether to stick the toy inside the jar or just give each of my kids one.
I always loved cereals with toys in them growing up, but would be so disappointed when my brother to it before me. With my children, I make them take turns or buy them each a box.
I ended up putting the Minion toys on a platter with the boiled eggs. The kids will each be able to pick one toy to use as a key chain.
Next I stacked my new bowls and spoons beside the milk and cereal.
The milk will stay in the fridge until I pick the kids up and boiled eggs will be reheated in the morning.
I hope this gave you some fun ideas for family breakfast and food storage. Be sure to browse my DIY section for more fun tutorial and ideas like this one.
