Materials Needed:

  • Scissors
  • AG Happy Meal Printable
  • Model Magic *or your choice of clay
  • Craft Paint
  • Mod Podge
  • Eraser Toys *or similar
  • Yellow Tissue Paper
  • Clear Packaging Tape
  • Thick Craft Foam
  • Zip Lock Bag *or similar plastic
  • Candle Holder & Small Bottle Lid *Optional for milk


  • We covered the Juice Box with packaging tape before I folded it together so it looked like the real thing. Somehow that part of the video disappeared.
  • For the nuggets we used a cream and light brown mixed together. A dot of orange might be good with it too.
  • For the fries we used cream and a dot of yellow.
  • For the apples we just used the cream.
  • The nuggets box might be a little tricky. If you follow the diagram below, it will turn out perfect. Score on all the folds, then cut the tabs as shown.

          The nuggets box is tricky. It is a harder printable to make than most.

      I love all of your ideas! Although with this one, the box came out like a bag. But it still works well with the set!

      Loving it, loving it. Even when I dislike Happy Meals and try my best to minimize buying them but I just love your project. I think I am going to try to make a cheeseburger with magic mold too, to make the buns and the hamburger. Cheese and lettuce can still be made from felt.

      Cute, but we never go to McDonalds, and when I say never I mean NEVER. The funny thing is that when I saw this post (Lastnight), my dad was fixing something or doing something like that at McDonalds!!!! I was going to comment he was there, but this iPad did not want to cooperate with me! Lol ? I like the food though! You did a great job making them so realistic! The Nuggets are cute, but MAYBE should have a had a little bit of an orange tint. Super cute idea though! Thanks Rudy! I might have to make the Go-Gurt and Apple juice!

      So many choices to compose the meal. ? I think there are going to be a lot of happy young ones and their dolls. Your milk jug idea is great, I think I’ll make apple juice that way. Any chance of you making something from Subway or A&W?
