It's spring (finally!), so the other day when Little Miss said to me (as she does MOST days), "Mom, I want to MAKE something together with you!" I had just the thing.
Thank you, Busy Bee Bags.
Here's what we did. (Thanks to the BBB we had all the supplies, but I bet you could scrounge these up in your own house pretty easily.)
Gather your supplies:
- Piece of paper
- Green marker or crayon
- 3 or 4 cupcake liners
- Assorted other crayons/markers depending on how much you trust your child (Little Miss and I had an "incident" recently with a marker which has since made me default to crayons unless I'm hovering over her while she draws and colors)
1) Draw (or have them draw) something similar to this:
Try not to laugh too hard at my ATROCIOUS drawing skills. BBB had done this part for me already, but since I didn't take a pic of it ahead of time I whipped up something similar for you (purely for illustrative purposes as I'm sure no one needs a template of this!)
2) Have them glue the cupcake liners to the top of the stems.
