Next, set up each child with their own “decoration station” using these small artist palettes (below). They’re just the right size to hold a cupcake and decorations. You can find them online at Amazon or Michael’s or in your local craft store.
Then start decorating! Each child can decorate their cupcake exactly the way they’d like.
This is a terrific birthday or holiday party activity too. It might be fun to have each child decorate two cupcakes, one to eat at the party and one to take home!
Baking and decorating cupcakes is such a great way to spend some time with your child, and this easy cupcake decorating idea is just right for kids of all ages.
