This cupcake flower craft was inspired by my three year old niece.
She wanted to bake cupcakes and be independent in the whole process. I was like, I don’t think so, I told her we are going to make cupcake’s for mom for Valentine’s Day. So, as I was making real cupcake’s, she was making cupcake flowers. To all my future baker’s enjoy your cupcakes. Don’t forget to share your cupcake flower craft on our Facebook page as well.
Green pipe cleaners for stems
Any color for leave’s
Colorful baking cups (I used 3 different colors)
Color Pompons to put inside the cups
Marker or Glitter
Have your child poked a hole with pipe cleaner at the bottom of the foam paper and make a round circle on the pipe cleaner. Have your child make the leaves with their pipe cleaner colors. Make leaves by folding half of the pipe cleaner and secure with the other half and wind it up on the green pipe cleaner.
Have your child glue the top of their stems to their page (we used 3 stems), then glue a baking cup on the top of each of the stems. You can also glue a smaller baking cup in the middle of the flower for more of a 3-dimensional look. Add a color pompon in the middle.
Have your child write Happy Valetine’s Day or Happy Mother’s Day with a marker or glue and sprinkle glitter. We used a marker.
