Yesterday we had a small party at home for Emma’s 3rd birthday. She is a little obsessed with doughnuts (calls them pink bagels, lol), so I thought a doughnut themed party would be fun.
Whilst the cake was baking, we made this pretty garland together with bits and pieces from the craft drawer.


You will need:

  • Paper Plates
  • Pink craft paper
  • confetti
  • glue stick
  • scissors
  • hole punch
  • yarn or string

How to make a Doughnut Garland:

Parents to pre-prepare: Cut hole out of center of paper plates and cut pink paper into irregular shaped rings to form ‘icing’.

Child:  Stick paper icing to plate and have lots of fun gluing on confetti ‘sprinkles’
Parent: Punch two holes in ‘doughnuts’ and thread with yarn to form garland.
String up your work and admire.

This is a great party project as each child can make their own doughnut to take home or combine to string up as a garland.

I also made a cake that vaguely resembled a doughnut, and had fun decorating some balloons by gluing some confetti on them.
