Cereal Box Puzzle

I'm always looking for ways to recycle stuff-besides throwing it in the recycling bin. Making a puzzle out of a cereal box is a great way to not only recycle, but teach your child environmental print-an early stage to reading, and it makes a great quiet activity throw it in a baggie and keep it in your diaper bag. tip: Number the pieces on the back for easily keeping track of them. ...

Another cereal box activity: A while back we mailed off for a free cereal bowl. And they came a while back! We actually got two-one for each of the boys. This story- Mailbox Magic by Nancy Poydar, is about a boy who does just that. I always love connecting reading to real life experiences- so I thought I'd throw this one out there again.
What other things do you do at your house with an empty cereal box?

Oh man, Jeffy is ALWAYS yelling at me to recycle (and he means convert into something else afterwards). I need to try that puzzle.

Sam loves to build with our empty boxes, or step on them and slide around
