It's my birthday this weekend and I guess I have cupcakes on my mind . . . When I found this cute book at Target, I decided we needed it for our classroom collection.
After we read the story - and talked about silly things that you could put on cupcakes - we added birthday candles and cupcake liners to the playdough table for some baking fun. I meant to bring in some muffin pans as well but found they had already been packed for the move!
At the art table, I drew some cupcakes with a Sharpie and the littles decorated them with crayon and watercolor paint. After the paint dried, some of them added stickers.
And the best part of the day: a picnic lunch with (of course) cupcakes!
