We love mini donuts, maybe a little too much, or maybe not enough. After designing our own zoo, we wanted to design more places. We have loved our other donut activities so it was natural to design a donut shop.

Design A Donut Shop
This is a great way to encourage your kids to use their imagination and create some delicious treats and put it all together in one fun project.
This is a straightforward real-life project for your kids to enjoy. You can set it up as a family project or as an individual project if your kids are anything like mine and more likely to fight than complete a project.
What You Get:
- Congratulations page
- Plan donuts and treats
- Plan layout – area and perimeter of your shop and more
- Plan a playlist
- Give glances of the shop – how your visitors will feel there
- Create promotional materials
How to Use this:
There are so many great ways to use this in your homeschool. We are starting off with making some mini donuts of our own. To decorate and to snack on while we talk about the things that we might want to have in our shop.
Maybe plan out a trip to a donut shop near you. To see what they have done and discuss what you child would change in their own donut shop.
As your kids plan out the spacing for their customers to move around? They may realize they need to pair down on sitting or displays. Use painter’s tape to tape off space in your home. We do this often to get the best idea of space.

I plan to buy some poster board for our final project and have them set out a Lego person-sized zoo. Fun and interactive in a way that interests them.
Make some of the mini donuts that your child has designed. That is the best part of this Real life project of designing a donut shop, eating donuts!
