    And if you have little ones who are missing a McDonald’s Happy Meal, one mum shared a genius way to make one at home.

    Taking to popular group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, mum Gemma shared her own ‘Mumdonalds’ version of the iconic children’s meal.

    To make the boxes, she folded some coloured card, added the words ‘Happy Meal’ and ‘Mumdonalds’, and even stuck the McDonald’s logo to them.

    A third wrote, ‘mumdonalds!! That’s amazing! I shall have to try make something like this’

    And a fourth tagged a friend and added, ‘get creative for the kids dinners 😂’
