Adventures in Donut Decorating! Fun Family Field Trip to Dunkin Donuts!


Donut  Decorating Dunkin Donuts kids

A few weeks ago I came across an event for a tour of a Dunkin Donuts in Palmetto Florida that was set-up through the mommy group that I am a member of. I knew my kids would get a kick out of this, so I signed them up and kept it a secret until we were well on our way to the store.

When we got there they had tables set up special for us, and they took the kid’s order for plain or chocolate milk. We then were taken on a tour of the facility and after, the kids were given crayons and coloring sheets to decorate and keep.

After coloring, they were provided plain donuts with icing and sprinkles to decorate with. Once they finished making their creations, they got to eat them, and my guys even decided to lick the plate.

It just so happens that there is a Baskin-Robbins at this location, so the kids also got to sample ice cream.  I decided not to worry about their sugar intake for the day.

When we were at the end of our adventure, they gave the kids a certificate for decorating the donuts. This event was so AWESOME and completely FREE.  It was such a wonderful experience for all of us and did make for an interesting and loud drive home.

When I first stayed at home with the kids I was pretty isolated, and being a member of a Moms Group became a real life saver for me. It gave me an opportunity to get out of the house, helped me meet new people, and allowed my children to experience new activities and have playmates.

If you are looking for a Moms Group in your area check out, and if you are interested in taking a tour at your local Dunkin Donuts, I encourage you to call your area store to see if they offer this service.



  1. I love the look on your son’s face when he realized where he was. I think this would have been a treat for anyone. I’d like to decorate doughnuts too. :)

  2. I love doughnuts and I have many a happy memory sitting at a Dunk’n Doughnuts counter enjoying them. What a fun experience for the kids.

  3. oh how fun! my daughter would love to decorate donuts like that!

  4. This is so cool! It really shows kids where foods come from and what better food than donuts! I love that this brand is including families in their campaigns.

  5. That is so cool. And I can’t believe it was offered for free. What fun for the kids.

  6. What a great idea to join a Mom’s group. I need to do this and will check out the meetup groups.
