Mum recreates a McDonald’s drive-through experience from home complete with look-a-like Happy Meals for her kids

OVER the past couple of weeks since fast-food stores have been shut, we've seen a growing number of people recreate their favourite takeaway treats from home. 

But one crafty mum has taken her kids' love for McDonald's to a whole new level, because not only did she whip up some McDonald's nuggets  – complete with the iconic packaging, of course – but she replicated the entire drive-through experience using an online simulator.

Karen Lennon, from Birmingham, insisted on making tea a little more exciting for her kids.

Taking to Youtube, the clever mum found the drive-through simulator which she streamed straight from her TV.

The video allowed her son to feel like he was in a car approaching the drive-through window where he was met by a McDonald's worker who took his order.

Eager to for his tea, Karen's son perched himself up on a ride-on car and approached the TV as if he were driving himself.

The youngster very politely ordered a McNugget happy meal – which his mum was prepping in the nearby kitchen – before being asked to wait for his meal in the near by waiting bay.

The whole clip was a very accurate documentation of the McDonald's ordering procedure – even down to the option to pay using cash or card.

Karen filmed the ride-along along experience and shared it on Facebook along with photos of her son's McDonald's meal.

Sharing with other members of the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group, she simply said: "When I bring macdonalds to the kids. Made tea time a bit more fun and the kids loved it."

And added that she'd searched LadBaby to find the video on Youtube.


The happy meal included chicken nuggets inside paper-made cartons, which sported the food outlet's iconic red and yellow logo.

Karen swapped out the fizzy soft drinks for a juice, and even included a small toy truck as the toy.

People were blown away by Karen's efforts, with the post attracting over a thousand Facebook likes.

Many love the idea and suggested they'd try it on their kids, while adults seemed pretty keen too.
