I decided to take a little inspiration from Voo Doo Donuts and host a Decorate Your Own Donut Halloween Party for my Activity Day girls from church.

I decked the table out in my finest Halloween decor.

I then provided all the fun toppings for them to decorate their donuts.

We had Coco Puffs, Captain Crunch, Fruit Loops, sprinkles, mini M & M’s, peanuts, marshmallows, mini chocolate chips, crushed Oreo cookie, candy corn and Tang drink mix powder. Of course I had to add in some edible googly eyes which ended up being a huge hit!

I purchased my donuts at Krispy Kreme.  Finding chocolate cake donuts can be a bit of a challenge but Krispy Kreme has them.  I also just bought plain cake donuts and some maple bars which also ended up being a huge hit.

I had two different flavors of frosting – vanilla and chocolate.

The girls just spread on their frosting of choice and then went to town decorating their donuts with all the fun toppings.

Of course if you are going to have donuts you must also have milk.  We had a choice of regular or chocolate.

I pulled out my fabric backdrop I made last year.Donut PartySee tutorial for backdrop here.  I added a few paper fans, Halloween garland and gauzy fabric for a fun backdrop to our table.

Just pull the covers off some old books and use them on the table to create height.

It was a fun little party and the girl’s loved decorating their own donut.  This idea could work for your upcoming Halloween party or really for any kind of party.  It would be a great activity for a birthday party too!

Our activity before decorating the donuts was making PVC Bows & Arrows!  So fun!!
