We’re debuting the Point of View theme ideas a little early this month because though GIFTS is a fitting theme for Black Friday we though you might be busy with gifts elsewhere. 😉
Add a green apple sour straw as a scarf. Break a toothpick in half and secure the scarf by poking the toothpick through the straw and in to the donut on the top where they overlap and on the bottom of the piece that hangs down the front. You can see the tiny dot of the toothpick on the bottom of the scarf.
These are so cute! I’m going to have to make them with the boys when they’re off track for a whole 6 weeks.

So cute! I made a way messier version last year with marshmallows. I can’t wait to try this instead. My kids will LOVE it!
What a cute idea! Thanks!
Love love LOVE!!! 😉
I am so going to make these for my munchkins! Just darling!
Just stopping by to let you know that I have featured your project on Fun Family Crafts! You can see it here
If you have other kid friendly crafts, I’d love it if you would submit them 🙂 If you would like to display a featured button on your site, you can grab one from the right side bar of your post above.
I made these today for my 3-year-old’s preschool class. They are DARLING. Thank you for the idea. I do have a couple of thoughts…
First of all, the carrots, which I secured with frosting, “leaked” all over the doughnuts after about an hour. The carrot juice bleeds out. So, I pulled those off and used orange gumballs instead. Candy corn might be the best. I didn’t have any on hand since I planned on using carrots.
Secondly, also after about an hour or two, the sour straws broke where the bend is (on the left side). I had to pinch mine back together. They will probably come apart again, but hopefully people will still get the idea.
Also, I used “lollipop sticks” instead of skewers. The skewers were too thick, and the doughnuts broke when I inserted them. The lollipop sticks are much thinner, so they work better.
Lastly, the nerds do not adhere easily to the doughnuts (even with frosting or honey) because of the powdered sugar on the doughnuts. They slide off. I ended up poking holes with a toothpick and then inserting the nerds into the holes.
These are absolutely adorable. I hope my comments help someone else who is planning on making them.
we love this idea! we re-blogged it at:

such a cute idea! ash & meg @ tumblewee.com
I am planning on doing this with my son’s class, but we are going to use small chocolate chips for the eyes and mouth (insert them upside down). I may need to try that out to see if it works. For the nose I bought a bag of the candy orange slices (like a gum drop but shaped like an orange wedge) we are going to slice them into smaller pieces. I have never seen the three donuts together- it is so cute! Thank you for sharing!
Super cute! Planning on making this week with my Goddaughter & her brother!
Try using a piece of fruit rollup for the scarf, you can even fringe it with a pair of shears. A gumdrop or jelly bean may work for the nose and mini chocolate chips for the eyes and mouth.
I love, love, love this treat! My nephew would have a blast building something like this and it’s so adorable. Thanks for sharing!!
