Cupcake Decorating Activity Materials

  • A couple pieces of cardboard (We just use recycled cardboard from boxes we have laying around the house!)
  • Cupcake Stencil
  • Glue Sticks
  • Markers / Paint to use as “frosting”
  • Sprinkles (you can use real sprinkles, or cut up pieces of construction paper!)
  • Pom Poms
  • Birthday Candles
  • Paper Cupcake Liners
  • Silicone Cupcake Liners
  • Cake Toppers (basically whatever you have lying around the house that’s cupcake-like, we used little star wands but anything can work, get creative!)

How to…

Step 1: Print and trace cupcake stencil onto cardboard and set up silicone cupcake trays with “toppings”

Step 2: Let the kids go crazy and use their creativity to decorate the cupcakes!

This Mess-Free Magnificent Cupcake Decorating Activity is seriously fun for all ages! My girls are 2 1/2 and 11 months old and this activity kept them busy for hours! They loved being able to decorate cupcakes like Mommy does! It was fun for me to decorate a cardboard cupcake alongside of them and put my art skills to the test as well!

Pro-tip: Dress your babes in one of the iloveplum B.B. Tutus for added cuteness!

  1. Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was
    just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how
    do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.

  2. I’ve been browsing online greater than 3 hours these days, yet I never discovered any
    fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful price enough for me.
    In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made just
    right content material as you did, the web can be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  3. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time
    choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  4. Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored at work so I decided to browse your blog on my iphone during lunch
    break. I really like the info you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
    I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile ..
    I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, awesome site!
