My blog features the activities and projects I do with my children. I have 3 children age 11, 7 and 4. I watch an infant, plus my 4 year old nephew! This blog highlights the activities/projects we create during the week. It also provides a way for me to organize all of the activities and projects we do, and it is a great way to share the projects/activities. I hope this blog will become a great resource and inspire creativity.

Sprouting Seedling Cupcakes!
This adorable treat comes from the April 2012 issue of Family Fun Magazine.
Directions: Bake cupcakes in paper liners and frost them with chocolate frosting. Crush chocolate cookies -(we used Chocolate filled Oreos) into crumbs and dip the frosted cupcakes into them. Use a toothpick to make a hole int he center of each cupcake top. To make the sprouting seedling, roll a green fruit chew candy ( we used green Airheads. I ripped the Airhead into pieces. The magazine used Jolly Rancher Fruit Chews) into a cylinder and taper the ends. With a toothpick, make a line down the center and fold the cylinder in half and shape it to make a v shaped seedling. Then insert it into the cupcake. The magazine put the cupcakes, in clean 2 3/4" wide terra -cotta pots. I didn't have any, so we didn't do this.
