Birthday Cake Craft for Kids | Decorate Your Own Cake Activity

Birthday Countdown: ◙ 20 days to go: Birthday Cake Craft  

On this day, their note said:

For your countdown craft activity, I'm going to give you a paper birthday cake...
Use pompoms and paper and stickers for frosting, and let's see what you make!

I printed a cake template, and cut circles and rectangle "sprinkles", and made paper roses from Crayola construction paper, punched out flowers from a flower punch, gave some pieces of crepe paper streamers, ribbon, pompoms, stickers, glue, and a pair of scissors for their birthday cake craft activity.

Open-ended cake craft like this one kept them busy as they used their creative skills and decided how they wanted to decorate their "birthday cake". Similarly, you can print out a cupcake template and have a "decorate your cupcake" activity.

As a variation, you can make a 3D version of a birthday cake craft, by wrapping circle or square boxes with plain paper to represent the cake, and have the kids add embellishments on all sides to decorate their cake.

Click here for the complete PDF file I will add more  toddler meal ideas  to this list as I come across more options.  If you are looking for  vegetarian food ideas for your toddler , I hope you will find my list* useful.  I write some remarks in brackets for example what to serve it with, or a short quick recipe.

Daily Morning Evening Routine Chart for Kids | Free Printable PDF

I got exhausted of repeatedly telling my kids every day to “hurry up let’s brush teeth”, “come sit down for breakfast”, and on and on.  They know their routine, but kids at this age listen and understand everything and very easily ignore.  And for me, having a schedule is very important.  So, when I realized they remember visuals better than what I say, I made this “ daily routine chart ” for them to follow and for me to hold my sanity.
