Donut Birthday Party Ideas


Not just a treat, it’s an experience.

Easy party food & fun

Place donuts on a stick to nibble, on a string for a game full of laughs.

Donut & Fruit Kabobs

Alternate mini donuts and cut-up fruit on wooden skewers. Tip: Stick skewers in a melon half to serve.

Bobbing for Donuts

Let plain donuts sit out overnight to harden. Put vanilla frosting in a bowl, add a few drops of gel food color, microwave for 10 seconds and stir. Dip one side of the donut in frosting. Add sprinkles and set out to dry. Loop string through each donut and drape over a support so you can adjust the height as each kid steps up to take a bite—no hands allowed! Tip: Hang the donuts barely within tippy-toe reach.

DIY decorations

Get splashy with colorful balloons & sprinkles.

Donut Balloons

Blow up balloons. Using a small paintbrush and Crayola fingerpaints, decorate the balloons with donut shapes. While paint is wet, add small crepe paper shapes as “sprinkles.” They will stick when the paint dries. Tip: Mix white acrylic paint and red fingerpaint to get pink.

Sprinkles Backdrop

Start with a white twin flat sheet as a base. For “sprinkles,” roll crepe paper in small, oblong shapes and tape to hold. Use double-stick tape to adhere them to the sheet. Tip: Use the backdrop as a curtain to hide a surprise on the other side.
