How to Have a Fun Cereal Party at Home

I think it’s time to talk about how to have a cereal party!

In my house, cereal is king and it always has been. That’s why we get super excited for slumber parties in my house, now that both kids are old enough for them. And besides that, we have a lot of cousins we love to have over too. Inspired by a local arcade that does Saturday morning cereal and cartoons, we have created the perfect way to have a cereal party right at home! I’ll show you how I put the cereals in glass jars, make fun signs from the cereal packaging, and then have a delicious toppings bar too. It’s always a huge hit with the kids, and bonus points that they can help with their friends.

Time for a cereal party!

Shop for cereals:

1 – First thing we do is shop for our favorite cereals. One favorite is Raisin Bran, because we can do so much with it. And for a sleepover party, I like variety, so I also get Frosted Mini Wheats and Froot Loops.

When I was a kid, cereal was THE breakfast destination because there were five of us. My parents would easily buy up to 5-10 cereal boxes at a time to suit all of our needs. As I got older, I grew to love cereal as more than just a breakfast staple. It is sort of.. everything. It’s diverse, versatile, and good for ALL occasions. It’s reminiscent of when I was a kid, and we’d mix different cereals in a bowl. Now as an adult, I’d rather eat one cereal at a time with tons of toppings. It’s fun! In terms of quick breakfast ideas, this is as easy and fun as it comes!

Shop for everything else too:

2 – Then go shopping for the ingredients, or find things in your own home! I bought fresh fruit – like bananas, blueberries and raspberries – as well as coconut, chocolate chips, and slivered almonds too.

Prep!

3 – Then go into prep mode. Cut the flaps of the cereal boxes, tape on bamboo skewers for sticks, and stick onto jars. Do all of your measurements of ingredients, as needed, and make sure you know basic breakfast measurements, like how many ounces are in a cup! Then pour the cereals into their counterpart labeled jars. Slice your bananas, wash your berries, and put all toppings in individual bowls and dishes. Think of fun combinations for the cereals and toppings! I love Raisin Bran with banana, coconut and almonds! For Frosted Mini Wheats, try blueberries and almonds – YUM. And for Froot Loops, have you ever had them with chocolate chips and bananas? Then get fun bowls and spoons. We liked polka dot bowls and fun colored spoons.

Think of the adults!

4 – Do NOT forget the adults. We love good coffee, and healthy smoothies too.

This part of the prep is fun when done with your kids. It’s easy to put together and just requires shopping for the right products and then putting your plan into action. Seriously, how fun is this? It reminds me of the slumber parties of my youth – when my sisters and I would all have friends over – making it one ultimate sleepover party with cereal the next day.

We have these fun little bowls for the toppings:

Now can we just take a second to appreciate and love all that is Raisin Bran? Probably you remember having it as a kid, right? I do! I remember the taste of the flakes and the way the milk tasted on them, and how the raisins tasted in a spoonful containing milk and flakes too. SO good. It’s so nostalgic for me. That’s why I love that it’s front and center for our cereal party. It’s a fun reminder for parents to show their kids the cereals of their childhoods. I can taste childhood in every bite.

Some other fun ideas might be flavored milks – like chocolate milk, strawberry milk, banana milk, and even caramel milk. I’ve even seen coffee milk! For our parties, we like the cereals and the toppings to be front and center, but I can see doing a party with just cereals and flavored milks next time one of the kids has a birthday or other cause for celebration!

So get to Sam’s Club and get some Raisin Bran and other cereals to make your own cereal party for the kids! (or you)
