Mini donuts are fun. They are cute, and easy to eat not matter whether you are an adult or a little one. I love making mini donut maker recipes for my kids in the middle of the week for a fun treat with a movie or documentary.

How to Use A Mini Donut Maker:
Getting Your Kids in the Kitchen
Making mini donuts are really easy, which makes them easy for kids to make. They aren’t working with an oven but instead a small appliance.
Something simple and fun to make like mini donuts is a great way to introduce your kids to baking. Using the piping bag to fill the molds is easy, and gives them a better chance at having their donuts turn out great, not burn and not have a huge mess to clean up when they are finished.
Use Mini Donuts to Teach Your Kids
Because we love mini donuts, I thought it would be fun to have some mini donut themed school work. Have a snack, learn something.
We have donut fractions. Which you could also do with real donuts as you are eating them. And donut place value where your kids decorate their donuts with tens blocks.
We also have creative writing and art. After doing this lesson, I recommend letting your kids decorate actual donuts in their design, this not only brings the lesson to life, but let’s you decompress from lessons with some fun and a snack.
