Easy Thanksgiving Day Place Cards with Alphabits

Alpha Bits SuperWHY

Mom It Forward SP 2

We are a family of cereal eaters. All five of us love cereal. I could it for all three meals each day. My dad is a big cereal eater too so I grew up eating cereal.

But this time, our cereal really wasn't for eating. Instead, we got to play with our food and do a Thanksgiving Day craft. We made place cards out of the Alpha Bits letters.

Did you know that involving your child in making snacks and fun recipes with Alpha-Bits can be a bonding experience, as well as a learning moment? It really is true. My kids and I love doing crafts together. We bond and we have fun!

Since 1958, Alpha-Bits has brought nutritious fun to the breakfast table and continues to be a great way for growing children to start their day.

The shaped pieces can help little ones become more familiar with their letters. Spark your child’s imagination with educational snacks and crafts to help them learn pre-reading skills in a fun way!

Alpha Bits

  • Nutritious, delicious breakfast for children with 20g of whole grains and 12 essential vitamins and nutrients per 30g serving.
  • Shaped pieces can help little ones become familiar with the letters of the alphabet.
  • Alpha-Bits can help make breakfast and snack time educational! Let your kids play with their food!
  • Alpha-Bits contains nutrients to support healthy brain development, like zinc and iron.


We had some fun with our Alpha Bits and got to play with our food. We made place cards for everyone for our upcoming holiday gathering. This simple craft can be done with construction paper, glue sticks, paper plates and of course, Alpha Bits.

First you need to decide on a size. We cut our construction paper in half and then folded the half once again creating  find a horizontal folded piece of construction paper.

Then we set out to find some letters in our cereal. I poured cereal onto four paper plates and wrote down all of the letters we needed to make our placecards. Then it took us about 10-15 minutes to find all of the letters we needed. We had to bite some shapes into pieces when we couldn't find a specific letter but they came out great! After finding the letters, we then used the glue stick on the letters rather than the paper.

You can even have some fun and put nicknames on the place cards as well.
