DOUGHNUT DAY!!!


We had friends over for Doughnut Day. 

We first read this wonderful book by Rod and Staff. It's a book filled with joy and happiness as they spend the day in doors baking doughnuts. They enjoy spending time with each other on a cold day. After they make the doughnuts they decide they are going to share them with some people and venture out to share there joy with others. We love reading this book during the winter. 

Doughnut Day

After reading the book Doughnut Day, we made doughnuts with my doughnut maker which is so easy. We bought a muffin mix at the store or you can make your own. 

Then we dip our doughnuts into powered sugar. 

We added two chocolate chips for the eyes and a candy corn for the nose of the snowman. 



They had fun creating there very own snowman. I know it's not healthy but we had fun and we got to spend time together. 

Then we made doughnuts out of round card stock and construction paper. The construction paper was the frosting of the doughnut. I used a hole puncher for the sprinkles. 

Ducky's finished doughnut craft. Little Miss Craft Queen:)

I can't get a serious picture out of this boy anymore. Fun Times!!!

Another get day of spending time together. 

Have a blessed day!!!!
