This month we are featuring books by Laura Numeroff for our Virtual Book Club for Kids!
We read If You Give a Cat a Cupcake by Laura Numeroff and did a simple cupcake craft.
To make our cupcake craft we used a variety of colors of paper, sequins, dot markers, buttons, scissors, and glue.
Before we got started I pre-cut a top and bottom for the cupcake. Then my daughter helped fold the bottom of the cupcake to make the wrapper have more texture.
Once everything was cut and folded, we glued the cupcake onto another piece of paper.
Next we decorated the cupcake with dot marker sprinkles and then we added sequins and button sprinkles too.
Once the cupcake project was sufficiently decorated we laid it out and let the glue dry.
While everything dried we got our playdough out (along with some cupcake tins and wrappers) and we made some playdough cupcakes. We even added some sequins to our playdough as sprinkles too!
My daughter was super proud of her cupcake craft and loved showing it to her dad when he got home!
We replicated this project again and again using a few different materials-- stamps, stickers, crayons, pens, etc.
I got to fly out of town to go visit my nieces over the weekend and we even managed to do this project with them too!
