Doughnut was invented in 1847. According to legend, Elizabeth Gregory made the first doughnuts with nuts in the middle. Her son, sea captain Hanson Gregory, cut out the center with a round pepper tin. Now about ten billion doughnuts are consumed in the United States each year. Children could celebrate the doughnut invention in several ways. They could poll friends and family as to favorite types of doughnut. They could invent a new flavor of doughnut. Of course, they could make or buy doughnuts and then consume!
