Does your school plan a donuts with dad or dudes each year? Or do you maybe have a special day in your classroom to celebrate dads, “dudes” and father figures?
We get out of school in May, but we like to still celebrate these awesome men in our children’s lives before the end of the school year. Figuring out what to have the dad’s come in and do on the other hand is a bit tricky. Mother’s day is much easier with options like a tea party, a spa day, or making a craft. Hence, I came up with 4 fun donut minute to win it games that can easily be played in a classroom with dads or even be used in a whole school setting if your school celebrates that way. Here are my Donuts With Dad- Donut Minute to Win It game ideas!
THIS ACTIVITY WORKS WELL WITH
Donut Memory Game
I created this quick memory game that works perfectly as a donut minute to win it station. The student and their guest will work together to see if they can find all of the correct matches in one minute.
You can download the game below by clicking the green box.
Donut Hole Toss
For this game, you’ll need a donut inner tube (I found mine in the Target Dollar Spot) and some white balls. They are the same ones that I used as snowballs for these winter minute to win it games and as bunny tails in these spring minute to win it games. You could always use rolled-up socks, cotton balls, or marshmallows too. To play the game, have the players see how many mini donuts they can toss into the donut hole in one minute.
This is one of my favorites to watch! You’ll need a ball of yarn, tape, and mini donuts. Tie a piece of yarn through the donut and tape it from the ceiling. The student and their guest will have one minute to see if they can eat the donut without using their hands, only their mouths.
And the last game we play is
My kids just can’t get enough of stacking things so we’re bringing it back again. You’ll need 6 or 7 mini donuts per player for this game. Have the players stack the donuts as high as they can without them toppling over in one minute.
And one last fun option for you would be to do a donut walk, just like a cakewalk. You can find the numbers here to make the setup super quick and easy! You can grab the donut cakewalk numbers here.
I hope this gives you some fun ideas to play for your Donuts With Dad- Donut Minute to Win It when you have dads come into your classroom!
See you next time!
