Kix Cereal

Food Art: A Shark for Breakfast

Kix cereal just happens to be one of my kids favorite breakfasts.  Couple that with an adorable shark, and you’ve got yourself a winner!  This shark breakfast was super fun to make, and did I mention that it’s easy too?!  Whip one of these bad boys up for your kids and get ready for the smiles and laughter.

How To Make It

1. Grab some Kix cereal and spread them in an even layer on a plate.

2. Slice your English muffin in half.  Spread one half with blueberry jam and place on top of the Kix cereal on the plate.

3. Using your knife, slice 3 triangles from the remaining half of English muffin.  Spread blueberry jam on these triangles and place them on the shark for fins.

4. Finally, let’s add a face.  Take your apple slices and cut out 2 large circles.  Place these large circles on the shark for eyes and finish them off with 2 black currants (or raisins).  Slice 1 thin strip of red skin from the apple and place on the shark for a smile.  Lastly, cut 7 small triangles out of the apple and alternate them from top to bottom along the shark’s smile.
