I think the oatmeal boxes were larger when I was a little girl.  In elementary school, I remember we did some finger painting and we used it to paste it on to the oatmeal containers.  The tops of the containers were also cardboard (not plastic like they are today) and we pulled a thread to rip the paper covering to separate the cover from the container.  We covered the outside of the cover with the finger painting also.  We punched a hole on the sides of the container near the top and also through the cover near the edges.  We made a big knot in a long piece of rope and threaded it through the container from the inside and went up through the bottom of the cover, across the top and down the other side of the cover, then through the outside of the conainer back into the insde and made another big knot   This way we could lift the cover up and down and it wouldn't get lost as it was attached with the rope.  The rope was long enough so we used it as a handle.  I used it for a knitting box to carry my yarn and needles with me.  Years ago I told a scout leader about this project and she had her little girl scouts do something like this and they covered their boxes with contact paper.  There are lots of things you can do with the simple cereal box.  You can even decoupage it.
