All you need is tons of Cheerios and a sleeping child. The fun begins when you start stacking the Cheerios on your unsuspecting little one's head, nose or body – before they wake up!

Thousands of dads got involved and shared the results of their mischief-making online -- but now the kids are getting their own back with #CheerioRevenge.
Okay, so mom probably lent a helping hand. But if she was the one who had to clean up all the Cheerios after dad had finished stacking, we don't blame her!
