Super Simple Crafting
I originally created this simple donut template to celebrate national donut day with my own kiddos a few years back.
We spent that entire June focused on creating a new summer craft each day and it was one of the most memorable times for me as a homeschool mom. I was newer to the homeschool scene and I wanted that summer to be extra special.
With that said, I wanted our donut day to be unique, yet simple.
Once upon a time, I used to aspire to be the perfect Pinterest mom. I would go all out, do all the things, and aim for perfection. I was pretty darn good at it too.
Over the years, something has drastically changed in me (for the better) and I tend to lean more on the side of flexibility and simplicity, leaving that need for perfection behind.
Which is exactly why I created this printable donut template!
My kiddos had a blast with this craft and I’ve been able to bless so many wonderful teachers & homeschool moms with this free printable over the years — which totally warms my heart.
I’m beyond excited to share this one with you today!
