    4Susan's Note:

    Really! You CAN grow donuts!! This recipe was sent home by my son's K teacher. All my kids loved it! *The Kindy kids colored a picture of doughnuts growing on a tree - the teacher then made a little seed package by stapling the coloring to another paper; she then put some cereal inside (aka Doughnut Seeds) - so cute!

    My Private Note


    Serves: 6



    Units: US | Metric

    • 12 pieces Fruit Loops cereal or 12 pieces other cold cereal
    • 1 tablespoon water or 1 tablespoon milk
    • candy sprinkles (optional)
    • 12 fresh doughnuts


    1. 1
      Before bed, have the kids place the cereal on a cookie sheet or tray; then sprinkle with milk or water.
    2. 2
      Place the tray in a cold oven overnight; tell the kids that if they stay in bed and sleep well then the cereal will magically grow into donuts by morning ;) .
    3. 3
      Very early the next morning drive to the bakery and buy a dozen freshly baked donuts; this is the price you pay for having kids that stayed in bed all night.
    4. 4
      Replace the cold cereal with the donuts and carefully destroy and hide the box or bag!
    5. 5
      Wait for your little darlings to wake up and discover the magic donuts in the oven.
    6. 6
      By the way, chocolate milk or sprinkles makes chocolate iced donuts; water makes glazed; regular milk makes cream filled; and colored sprinkles makes - colored sprinkle covered donuts!

      isn't that kind of untruthful?
