The mum revealed how she made colourful boxes in pink and orange to resemble the Happy Meal containers.
She also went the extra mile and replicated the white chip bags, and placed the famous “golden arches” M letter on the front of her packaging.
The image was shared on the Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, and has racked up hundreds of likes.
Many parents said it was a great idea for their kids isolating at home and could be an opportunity to make a healthier option of the McDonald's meals too.
One wrote: “mumdonalds!! That’s amazing! I shall have to try make something like this.”
Another said the idea was perfect for their child’s birthday, which is to take place in lockdown.
And one commented: “these are a great idea.”
