This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Rube Goldberg  Machine contest and this year General Mills is helping celebrate by having these designs built on the back of their cereal boxes.

This is a great way to help kids be creative by building a cereal machine and they also have  a chance to win a scholarship from General Mills. The new boxes of Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cocoa Puffs, Cookie Crisp, Lucky Charms and Reese’s Puffs include easy-to-follow instructions to turn the box into a Rube Goldberg-inspired simple machines.

You and your kids will never want to pour out cereal the old fashioned way again. General Mills is also giving away $20,000 worth of scholarships to 20 different winners of their cereal box machine sweepstakes. For official rules about the contest CLICK HERE
