Inside: The most entertaining donut party games. 

Everyone loves a good donut! Whether it’s a classic glaze, or a chocolate with sprinkles, or jelly-filled, it’s hard to find someone that will turn down one of these yummy treats.

With that being said, there are also a ton of games that can be played with the dessert! I know mom typically says to not play with your food, but with a treat as fun as a donut, I think she’ll let that rule slide for these games.

The fun decorative design of donuts paired with their delectable flavor makes it hard for anyone not to have a good time when they’re involved.

Not only are there games that use donuts to play, but there are a bunch of donut themed games as well! And even if you’re not using real donuts as a part of the game, you can give out donuts as a prize for the winner.

Donuts for everyone!

Donut Party Games

These are some entertaining, a-GLAZE-ing donut games to play with the food! You don’t even need a ton of supplies, just a dozen or so donuts from your favorite bakery, and some other easy-to-find, inexpensive materials that will make for incredible party games!

  1. Donut on a String: Make sure to grab donuts with a hole in the center for this activity! Loop string through the middle and tie it to a structure above the players heads. On the count of three, all contestants eat the entire donut without using their hands or having it fall to the floor. 
  2. Donut Relay: Teams of 4-5 players will get one donut. Create a finish line a few feet away from the start and the first player will hook the donut on the end of a spoon and bite the other end to keep the donut balanced. They must walk to the finish line and back and transfer the donut to the next person’s spoon without using their hands and without it dropping. First team to have all their members complete the relay are winners!
  3. Donut Hole Shooting: Fun doesn’t have to be expensive! Grab a few plastic bowls of different sizes and a box of donut holes. Give each player a handful of donut holes that they will try to shoot and get into the plastic bowls, each with their own point amount. Whoever gets the most points wins.
  4. Pin the Sprinkle:  A sweet twist to a classic game!  Each player must place their designated sprinkle onto the donut while blindfolded, a great game for little kids!
  5. Donut Themed Bingo: Play Bingo as you normally would, but with these sweet boards! Whoever gets bingo first can get a donut themed prize, like a box of donuts!
