Cheerio challenge: What to do whilst your baby’s asleep

The cheerio challenge has gone viral and dads everywhere are posting their attempts online.

The challenge is simple: get a box of cereal, sneak up beside your sleeping baby and stack as many hoops as you can on their head.

Patrick Quinn, co-founder of Life of Dad, a social network for dads, told 5 live Breakfast that he got the idea for the challenge from playing with his 3-week-old son, Maxton.

He said “the higher the stack got, the funnier it got, by the time I got up to five I was in tears”.
