1) Easy Donut Craft

easy donut craft - child colors, paints the icing and then adds sprinkles

For this first Donut Craft idea, have your child color the donut template with a brown crayon.

Next, using washable paint, have your child add “frosting” to the donut. We chose to use Crayola washable pink paint for our “frosting.”

Next, paint on a bit of Elmer’s school glue. Sprinkle the donut with small sprinkles. Super easy and adorable – perfect printable craft for your donut lovers!

2) Glitter Donut Craft

This next idea is also pretty simple. Have your child color or paint the donut.

We used a brown colored pencil to color it, then painted on the icing with washable paint.

Next, add a bit of Elmer’s School Glue, paint it into your icing portion and then sprinkle with glitter.

Kids will love creating sweet designs on their donut shape!

3) Puffy Paint Donut Craft

For this next idea you’ll need to create puffy paint.

Mix together equal parts Elmer’s School Glue and white shaving cream. Add a bit of color using washable paint or food coloring. We used some pink washable paint.

Have your child color the donut and then add puffy paint “frosting” to the top of their donut. You can also add sprinkles if you like.

So cute and when it dries…it’s soft to the touch!

Want to add a little more pizazz? Try adding tiny pom poms to act as sprinkles!

This project is best done when you trace your donut template onto cardboard or a paper plate to make it more sturdy. We used a cereal box.

Simply trace around your donut template and cut out the cardboard donut. Let your child paint the donut and add mini pom poms with glue.

Super cute and such an easy way to create a sprinkled donut craft!
