My sister Perry helped Boo and I make these toy donuts when we were visiting NC recently. They look almost real!

Materials needed:
Foam chair cushion
Spray paint
Puffy paint

 

To make these start with a foam chair cushion insert (most large craft stores carry these):

Use a serrated knife to cut out the circle from the foam:

Using sharp scissors, carefully trim the edges over and over until the shape of the donut becomes curved:
