Fun Donut Craft for Kids

Fun Donut Craft for Kids -

We love doing crafts in our house but sometimes things can get boring. We need to really be creative and think of fun things to do to change it up and make it fun for everyone.

Being pregnant one of my weaknesses is we live in between two Tim Horton’s donut shops, and often walking the kids to/from school it’s all I smell. So, of course a few times a month we need to stop in! I am the biggest fan of sprinkle donuts and when they have them the nutella donuts (oh my gosh, to die for!) so what better idea is to make some donut crafts? Of course the real thing is always better but sometimes this is the better option, and I’m sure the fact I’ve gained 22lbs since February in this pregnancy makes me love these delicious looking paper crafts that much more!

Make Your own Donut Craft

Materials Needed:

  • Light brown paper
  • Pink, purple, and white puffy paint
  • Sprinkles
  • Large cup for tracing
  • Sprinkle lid for tracing
  • Pencil


  1. Trace your large cup with a pencil onto your light brown paper four times
  2. Now trace your sprinkle lid in the center of the larger circle
  3. Cut your large circle out
  4. Now carefully cut your smaller out
  5. Using your puffy paint, paint a large and small wavy circle onto your donut
  6. Fill in your wavy circles with puffy paint
  7. Sprinkle on a few sprinkles and let dry








How fun do these look? My girls can’t wait to put them up on their walls. They look almost good enough to eat!

What type of crafts do you like to do with your kids? Any food related?

    I haven’t tried doing many food themed crafts but this is a great idea. Have to try it next time we’re feeling crafty.

    How cool! I’m going to show this to my daughter and see if she wants to make a doughnut banner for her bedroom.

    Those are so cute! Back when my kids were still interested in doing crafts, we did lots of food crafts. We made pizzas and even french fries.

    That looks really cute! I need to get a bunch of ideas together for the summer so that my son has stuff to do and I don’t get the whole “I’m bored “statement during the summer.

    OMG! My 4 year old is obsessed with all things donuts. We just bought donut earrings. She will totally love doing this.

    This is adorable! Anything that will give my son something to do over the summer is OK in my book!

    This is great. A fun way to play with donuts and save on calories. I bet it can be turned into a matching game.

  • Reply Terri Beavers May 18, 2016 at 1:52 pm

    Aww those look like heaps of fun and are bright and vivid so the kids would love them. I’ll have to let Alyssa and Abby make some to use for their kitchen play set. They’d have a blast making them and then playing with them.

    This is a really cute idea and would be a great craft project for the kids. I will have to give this to our Sunday School teacher and have the little ones do this one Sunday. Thank you for the great idea!

    Cute idea. Actually, they look appetizing.

    Oh, how cute! I’ll have to find some boyish colors for my three year old to do this craft. I just hope he doesn’t try to eat them. LOL

  • Reply Rosey May 19, 2016 at 6:14 am

    That is a fun donut craft. They turned out cute too! This would be great for a group of kids to make in classrooms too. Just the kind of craft my son’s teacher used to do for the class last year!

  • Reply bohemian babushka May 19, 2016 at 11:56 am

    Ya know, they really do look good enough to eat. Too real, would always be wanting donuts… not that Babushka would take much coaxing… BB2U
