I'm a teacher. And recently the school district started a program that was having kids eat breakfast in their homeroom class (so that the kids actually eat something for breakfast). One of the items on the breakfast menu was graham crackers. After seeing several days of graham crackers thrown away, I thought up a use and turned it into an art project for one of my classes. Since I have virtually no budget, much of the supplies were things I already had or could recycle.
Step 1: Supplies
cereal like fruit loops or cheerios
masking tape or duct tape
self hardening clay (I used Model Magic clay made by Crayola)
markers to color clay
Krylon matte varnish
optional: candy (peppermint candy, hard candies, gummy bears)
