Cereal Box Scribble Bookshelf

Have you ever wondered what on earth to do with all your preschooler’s scribbles? Here’s a great idea that will help keep the playroom neat too.


You will need: An empty cereal box (I used a double-bag size one from Costco), scribbled coloring sheets (or any other interesting paper), scissors, and glue.

Have your preschooler rip the papers up into hand-sized pieces while you cut the box down to the shape you want your finished ‘shelf’ to be.


Work together to cover the box with the papers using plenty of glue. When all sides are covered, let the box dry.

There’s your new bookshelf decorated with your child’s artwork!

*For a longer-lasting shelf, cover the project with a shellac spray.
