What you Need for your donut craft:

- Stickers or other decorative materials
- Optional: something circle to trace
How to Make This Donut Craft for Preschoolers:
First, Draw the Circles.
We wanted to introduce the idea of tracing to Little Miss, so we showed her how to trace a circle using rings from her stacking toy.
Drawing the circles freehand is another great way to practice this skill.
After drawing the donuts, cut them out.
If you are doing this project with those less than 1 year, you could cut out the donuts before hand and just let them glue and decorate. (For other great circle activities for 1 year old’s, check out this post.)
Next, Assemble the donuts.
If you want frosting on your donuts, cut out extra ring shapes. Glue them on top of the donut “dough”.
Then glue the donuts to another piece of paper as the tray.
Last, decorate the donuts!
Use stickers, glitter, paper scissors, etc. to decorate the donuts. For sprinkles you can cut out tiny strips of paper to glue on. Let your kiddos creativity run wild!
After making those donuts, I bet you want to eat some, too, huh? Or am I the only one?
