How many can YOU stack?

Posted on

Just in time for Father's Day, dads everywhere are doing the daddest thing yet. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you...THE CHEERIO CHALLENGE.

The challenge is simple:

1. Get a box of Cheerios.

2. Sneak up beside your sleeping baby.

3. One at time, stack as many Cheerios as you can on their head.

You must have the stealth of a jungle cat.

Patrick Quinn, founder of Life of Dad, a social network for dads, told BuzzFeed that he got the idea for the challenge from playing with his 3-week-old son, Maxton.

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

Since then, the #CheerioChallenge has blown up, with tons of people sending photos of their attempts to the Life of Dad Facebook page.


"The real challenge of the Cheerio Challenge is stifling your own laughter," Quinn said.

Quinn said he couldn't stack more than five Cheerios without cracking up laughing and toppling the whole tower over.

"It's much harder than you'd think," he said.
