Dads compete to stack Cheerios on babies' heads because ...dads

(CNN) -

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," Quin 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.

"It's pretty bananas how it took off," Quinn told CNN.
