On Wednesday, H got very excited when this arrived :
particularly the colour change pens. Mummy and daddy may have also had a bit of a play around with them later on too… ahem.
Fast forward to a rainy Saturday afternoon, and we got the box out, minus the Krispies but still intact, though after a short time we realised it was best decorated flat. H aged two and three-quarters (and a little bit more) got decorating. Firstly, she started on the cereal bowl – and it was none of those stripes for her – just plenty of colour change. Oh yes. In order to successfully colour things in, you need ‘mascara face’ as us mums might call it…
Once Snap’s t-shirt was coloured in, out came the colour change marker. Alas, her attention to detail meant it wasn’t quite where it was meant to be, but actually, at her age I was pretty pleased with it! The large markers had some colour change stamps on them which H applied beautifully all over the bowl – quite literally all over it.
There may have been minimal parental help in the colouring in of this picture. I’d say about 1% me, 1% daddy and 98% H. Honest (she wouldn’t let us). Actually, once it was flattened out it made it much easier to see Snap, Crackle and Pop’s colours they needed to match – I was quite impressed with her colouring and matching.
Then it was time for the glitter glue. Oh yes. We love glitter glue. H does too. What better excuse to get lots of gloopy glue with glitter in everywhere? Especially when you’ve four colours to use!
It goes without saying that once you’ve decorated your Rice Krispies box, that you leave it to dry while having your photo taken alongside it to show off your proud achievement.
As well as the obligatory show off picture, there’s an unwritten law that it must also be followed up with some Rice Krispie Cakes (or if you’re Australian like Shaun, that’ll be Chocolate Rice Bubbles cake). Fortunately we’d been to Ikea and I’d picked up some chocolate for exactly this purpose.
Our chief mixer got on with it until the mixture was ready and it was time to spoon it into the muffin cases.
Done like a true pro.
Our final bit, to finish off our crinkles (not sure why we call them that, but hey) was to add sprinkles. Obviously, leaving the responsibility of sprinkles on crinkles to a toddler is a very sensible thing.
They tasted damn fine too and we had a fun afternoon doing the colouring in!
This is our entry for the BritMums Colour Me In Rice Krispies challenge sponsored by Kellogg’s. We were sent the pens and glitter glue, plus a box of Colour Me In Rice Krispies to take part. #ColourMeInRK
