"Decorate Your Own Cupcake" Activity

O(4) went with me to Special Events' Day (similar to Special Olympics) at my school a few months ago, and she was able to go around with a class to do all of the activities. Her favorite activity was decorating her own cupcake at the snack stand, and she said she really wanted to have a "decorate your own cupcake" activity at her 5th birthday party.

We had O's 5th birthday party (a month early so our friends who are moving to Costa Rica soon could attend), and the "decorate your own cupcake" activity was the highlight of the party! We typically don't have many sugary snacks or snacks with artificial colors in our house, but we broke that rule (big time!) for O's party!

When we went shopping, she chose blue sugar sprinkles, color sprinkles, color marshmallows, jelly beans, chocolate rocks, etc. She used all of these things to decorate her own birthday cake, and then we also used them for the cupcake activity. Fun times!


  1. love your blog so much and follow u

  2. Well done for 5 years old decorating a cupcake. Shape O's potential in baking pastries. Wonderful post.

  3. I was interested to hear that your friends are moving to CR. We just moved back from there last year after living there for two years. Actually, my son, who is a month older than E was born there. We lived in the Central Valley, near San Jose. Do you know where (general location) your friends will be?
