We were recently offered the opportunity to take part in BritMums Kelloggs Colour Me in Linky. We love Rice Krispies and colouring so I had to sign my kids up!
We received this lovely big box of Rice Krispies- it won’t last long in our house!
This Summer, the regular colourful front of Kelloggs Rice Krispies boxes is being replaced by colour-in Snap, Crackle and Pop, so children can decorate the characters and personalise their breakfasts.
I loved Snap, Crackle and Pop when I was little.
I remember during holidays in our tourer caravan we used to colour in and do the puzzles on the back of the Kelloggs Variety Multipacks. I can imagine families this summer colouring in these lovely boxes to keep their children amused on those inevitable rainy days we are sure to have.
To help our kids decorate the boxes, BritMums also sent us a WHSmith “Bumper Colouring Case“, this was brilliant! We have a craft draw full of felt tip and pencil crayon containers etc but this Summer all the kids have needed out is this Colouring Case, and glue stick and scissors. We will definitely be taking it with us on our next trip.
The colouring case includes
18 washable coluring pens
12 mini colouring pencils
10 brush pens
5 colour changing markers with colouring changing pen
5 double-ended colour changing stamper markers
4 glitter glues
4 scented markers
As I have three children old enough to colour I went out and bought two more boxes of Rice Krispies so they could all join in. Well, they’ll all be eaten anyway!
Caitlyn enjoyed colouring in her box from the supermarket.
Danny chose the Colour-in Finger Puppets for his colouring project. This meant he could amuse us with a little Snap, Crackle and Pop Show later!
Rebecca colouring in.
They all loved the colour change pens and especially the colour change stampers. I loved them too! Here, Rebecca is stamping stars on Pops red t-shirt to make them turn yellow. These pens were great for creating designs and patterns.
Danny cut out and coloured in his finger-puppets.
Rebecca with her finished colour-in entry. It’s hard to see in the photos, but she used the glitter pens to accentuate the details in the pattern and it looked great!
It’s lucky I took these photos as the next day, Caitlyn decided to try to “improve” Pop’s face and
scribbled re-coloured over it. The joys of younger siblings!

“Hi, we’re Snap, Crackle and…Pop!”
We never recycle a cereal box until we’ve reused it. We’ve made robots and cars out of them, but often we just use them for the cardboard. Rebecca decided to make a picture frame out of her box to frame her “masterpiece”.
She cut out the back of the box.
I used my craft knife to cut out the middle for her. We used a border of 3 cm.
She coloured in the frame and stuck in onto her Rice Krispies picture. She made use of the colour change stampers and glitter again!
Finally, you can’t have Rice Krispies without having Rice Krispies Cakes! We make them all sorts of ways, but for me you can’t beat the basic Rice Krispies mixed with Melted Chocolate. Yum!
Caitlyn’s moody face is because I have told her she has to wait until the chocolate has cooled and “set” before she can taste them!
Yes, I know I’m a cruel Mummy!
Thank you BritMums and Kelloggs Rice Krispies.
We really enjoyed our colouring in, baking and eating with Rice Krispies! 🙂
