“Arnie the Doughnut”: Book Craft

This easy craft is perfect for younger Girl Scouts (or younger siblings) and is a great follow-up to “Arnie the Doughnut” by Laurie Keller.

Materials Needed:

  1. Glue

  2. Scissors

  3. White paper or colored construction paper

  4. Markers

If the construction paper is not available, shapes can be drawn on white paper and colored.

Cut two doughnut shapes (the second shape is for the icing- edges will be scalloped), mouth, and small white circles for eyes.

Cut, color, and embellish parts. Cut the edges of one doughnut shape to be the icing. Glue on donut sprinkles.

Now, it’s time to assemble your doughnut. Glue icing on the doughnut, then glue on eyes and mouth! Almost done.

Give Arnie some arms and legs. Do you have a favorite kind of doughnut? Éclair? Apple Fritter? Glazed? Or, doughnut holes? Yummy!

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
