Beach Donut Roll and Cover Games

Did you know that the first Friday in June is National Donut Day? I can assure you, I’m very much in favor of this important holiday, and so are both of my kids 😀

Why not celebrate with this fun roll and cover game featuring a cute donut on the beach? We’ll be having some real donuts while we play but that part is optional 😉
