Yup, it's that time of year again, when the kind, good hearted, mommy that I am, turns into a trickster! This year my inspiration came from an American Girl doll. (Well mini food for that American Girl doll :) Since April Fools Day falls on a Sunday I'm kinda limited on time to mess around with food and all so enter in the donuts. Not just any donuts, mini donuts. The idea is to tell the kids "cause we have to get out of the house early I picked up donuts for breakfast and that they can find them on the counter."
2-3" x 4 " pieces of cardstock (I used white)
Score Board (or a way to score the cardstock)
15 Cheerios (or similar shaped cereal)
Toothpick if desired
With one piece of cardstock you will score at 1/2 " on all four sides.
The other piece of cardstock will be scored at 5/8" on all four sides.
Next you will cut to the score line along the shorter score. (Cut on the left side on all four sides-see photo)
Then fold along all of your score lines. Fold the small tabs you created on the inside of the sides of your box. Use a glue dot to secure. Repeat with the other piece. You will notice one box is smaller than the other. You can fit the pieces together now to form your mini doughnut box.
Now onto the doughnuts:
Repeat with the other cheerios, and then place in your box. Close it up and get ready to have some kids mad at you (especially since they are now expecting donuts!!)
I'll let you know how it goes. I'm not only doing this for my kids, I'm going to bring them in for my kids in Children's Church tomorrow too! (I even have it as part of the object lesson for our Easter Story!) I'll let you know how it goes...or if I have to buy lots and lots of donuts! ;)
