A cereal tower

15 minute Craft planner

Beware of allergies - make sure it is safe for the children in your group to handle and taste the food used in this activity.

You will need:
Ice cream cones (either use the type with a flat base or cut off the tip of the cones)
Shreddies or equivalent
Paper plates enough for two per child
Chocolate spread or honey
Dinner knives

How to prepare:
Before the session wipe the surfaces in your teaching area.

How to make a cereal tower:
1. Make sure all the children have washed their hands before starting this activity.

2. Give each child two paper plates. On one of their plates place a handful of Shreddies and a cone. The children will use their second plate to build on. 

3. Encourage the children to turn their cone upside down and begin to ‘build’ on the base. Demonstrate how to stack the Shreddies, spreading a little honey or chocolate spread between each to strengthen the tower. 

4. If a cereal tower collapses encourage the child to begin again. At the end of the session praise all the children for their work.
