We did make time for one craft to celebrate my best friend's birthday (she also happens to be the girls' day care provider).
All you need:
- 8x10 white card stock
- 12x12 gray card stock
- few pieces of colorful scrap card stock (for candles)
- paint & paintbrushes
- scissors & glue
Step 1: the frosting
The girls each painted a piece of white card stock. Once the paint was dried I cut the corners and edges off the paper to make it a rounded cupcake-like shape.
Step 2: the cupcake wrapper
While the girls painted, I cut a piece of gray card stock into a rough shape of a cupcake wrapper. Then I folded it accordion style (the way you fold to make a fan).
Step 3: attaching frosting to wrapper
Just glue the 2 pieces together.
Step 4: adding candles
We painted the number 32 using the same method we used for the preschool numbers activity and then just glued them to the top.
I also used a couple of pieces of pink and yellow scrap paper to make a candle. And that's it!
Happy Birthday, Sarah!
