Puffy cupcakes. How much fun are these!?!?!
Plastic sandwich bag
Thick card stock
Cut the cupcake liners in half and slightly bend the edges to create a surface to glue down.
Glue cupcake let halves on lower 1/2 of paper. Stuff with cotton balls to give support. Make sure to create a mound on top too. (See picture below.)
Next comes the fun and messy part! Dump a 50/50 mixture of shaving cream to glue into the plastic bag and add food coloring if you'd like to make a specific color.
(Rather than give a specific measurement this ratio gives you the flexibility to make a batch in whatever size you want or making multiple smaller matches.)
Now zip the bag *tightly* and let your little one squish and mix!
Carefully snip a corner off the bag and let you little one "frost" the cupcakes. Make sure you cover the cotton balls.
Add sprinkles or decorations if you'd like.
Set of on a flat surface to dry. They will need at least 24 hours (or more) depending on how thick it is.
