The theme for the Family Fun linky from Denise over at Mum on a Mission for a Better Life last week was cupcakes. With all the birthday parties and cakes we’ve had over the last few weeks (including this past weekend!) I completely failed to link up on time and baking cupcakes didn’t appeal! But, I liked the theme so I decided that we could make some craft ones instead :)
You will need:
Paper plates (or circles of card)
Paint and paint brushes
Coloured paper/card/tape (we used patterned duck tape and coloured paper tape)
Sparkle (we used glitter glue)
Sprinkles (we used shiny beads)
Cover one half of your plate with paint/paper/coloured tape; this is your cupcake case. Then glue cottonwool balls on to the other half of your plate; this is the frosting. Then decorate with glitter glue and beads!
I joined in this time and made the one with the patterned case :) The 5yo made the other two. The blue one was a blueberry cupcake that had been taken out of it’s case…
The 5yo really enjoyed designing and decorating his cupcakes!
