Need something to do this Father’s Day? Look no further than your pantry for hours of entertainment.

Thanks to Patrick Quinn, co-founder of parenting site Life of Dad, fathers around the world are stacking cereal on their sleeping children’s heads and sharing the photos on social media with the hashtag #CheerioChallenge.

According to CNN, the lighthearted competition started a few days ago when Quinn was “trapped” under his snoozing 3-week-old son, Maxton, with a bowl of Cheerios nearby. Naturally, he started stacking the cereal on Maxton’s nose.

“I’d take a picture but then I’d start laughing and it’d topple over,” Quinn said. “So I’d start again, take a picture and it’d topple over. The highest I got to is five.”

Soon after Quinn posted one of his photos to Life of Dad’s Twitter account, the challenge quickly spread as dads tried to outdo one another.
