June 1 is National Donut Day. What could be more fun than eating donuts? How about eating donuts and celebrating the existence of these sweet treats with the kids?
Here is a fun donut-making craft to get the kids involved in celebrating this under-appreciated holiday.
• Craft foam sheet
• Craft glue
• Fabric paint
• “Sprinkles” (buttons, beads, craft foam circles or whatever you decide makes the best sprinkles)
• Cut a donut out of the craft foam sheet
• Drizzle “frosting” fabric paint on the donut, if desired
• Adhere “sprinkles” onto the fabric paint or use glue
• Allow to dry
Make several and play bakery shop with the kids. You can also turn the sprinkles and the donuts into learning opportunities for counting.
