cupcake decorating.

Is it just my kids, or does everyone else have kids that want constant entertainment? I try to keep up the energy, and I try to come up with new things...but gosh it is exhausting. From the moment they wake up, I need to be on.

After we had already played outside in the rain, we cooked and ate dinner, we had a playdate in the afternoon, we did some coloring crafts...aaaand they were still bored.

So, I whipped up some box cupcakes, and some yummy homemade buttercream for the kids to decorate  make a mess decorating them.
Yes, Devin ate more buttercream than what he put on the cupcakes. He also may have licked all the buttercream off of the cupcakes he decorated 2 seconds after he was done. I was basically his hero afterwards.
Savannah was much more interested in making hers spooky, and not as much eating the finished product.
It was the perfect activity for both a 2 year old and an 8 year old. That can be hard to do sometimes.
Definitely going to put this in the rotation of fun things to do with them, and I know my muffin top will approve.

My daughter is the same way. She's constantly wanting me to keep her occupied. Very exhausting!

Great idea! I may have to try this--and leave the room while they decorate so it doesn't stress me out too much. ;)

Bake with the kids and then bring the treats to the neighbors. That's what we do. That's what helps my muffin top.

And yes. My kids want constant entertainment. It's never quiet at my house. Ever.
