After reading If You Give a Cat a Cupcake, we decided to make our own jumbo cupcake.We tried not to be as messy as the cat, but that's a part of creating our own art masterpieces! :)

First paint the cupcake with watercolors.
While the paint is still wet, sprinkle some salt on the top part of the cupcake. The salt adds a nice speckled effect on the painting.
Since we did this activity after reading If You Give a Cat a Cupcake, we pretended the salt was the sprinkles from the book.
Once the painting is dry, cut it out and glue onto the “My cupcake” page. Add any decorations.
There you have it! A super sweet art project and a great reminder of what we did during our letter "C" week. To see what else we did during our “Cc is for cupcake” week, check out my post on Totally Tots.
