Dads Are Stacking Cereal on Their Babies in Epic Father’s Day #CheerioChallenge

Dads everywhere are kicking off Father’s Day weekend in the most hilarious of ways – by turning stacking cereal on sleeping babies into a competitive sport.


Mothers typically celebrate their day with brunch, pedicures and bottomless mimosas. Dads are making a name for themselves by using their babies as human Jenga stands.

The results?

Utterly perfect and priceless.

According to Buzzfeed, the #cheeriochallenge started on the blog “Life of Dad,” which bills itself as a social network for dads.

Buzzfeed says the blog’s creator, Patrick Quinn, got the idea after playing with his newborn son.

“I put one Cheerio on his nose, and then tried to see how many I could stack and it just kind of went from there,” Quinn told Buzzfeed.

There aren’t many rules – just find some cereal, a sleeping baby and stack away. But no glueing those Cheerios together – you have to stack the one at a time, on top of each other.

And now the #cheeriochallenge is taking over the internet and Facebook and pretty much every other social media platform you can imagine.

The challenge has been shared hundreds of times on the Life of Dad Facebook page, and pictures are pouring in.

Dads everywhere are trying to one-up each other on craftmanship, creativity, and just outright insanity when it comes to stacking things on their infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers. Don’t have Cheerios? That doesn’t seem to be a disqualifying factor.

So far, it appears that 17 is the top Cheerio stack in the ongoing #CheerioChallenge.
