These patriotic flag donuts are the best July 4th breakfast idea! The kids can help make them and they’re such fun patriotic doughnuts to celebrate the holiday.
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I really get into the holidays with food, crafts, and decorations. I get the kids to help prepare foods for 4th of July to tantalize our tastebuds for BBQs, friends, and fireworks.
But, I was thinking I’d like to START the day with a fun July 4th kids activity, not just end it on a tasty note. I came up with these fun flag donuts so that the kids could help and we’d get to have a treat for breakfast, too! Let’s get started.

Tips to Make Patriotic Doughnuts
- Let the kids get involved. They can not only help decorate, but they can also get involved with the baking. Most kiddos can measure, crack eggs, and stir.
- No cookie icing? No big deal. You can make your own by mixing powdered sugar and a small amount of milk. Pop it in a zipper bag and trim off the tiniest bit of a corner to pipe.
How Do I Make these Flag Donuts?
I’m so glad you asked. Because the kids would love to help make these, consider prepping the doughnuts and then giving them the reins with the decorations.
