Enjoy a fun afternoon of baking cupcakes and creating a box top station.
Have you ever explored the Baking with Kids lessons on Betty Crocker? There are so many great ideas for getting into the kitchen with your kids to learn and bake at the same time. I cook and bake with my children as much as I can. My most vivid childhood memories are of me being in the kitchen with my mother and grandmother. Those are the same memories I hope my children will have of me. Pick an afternoon when you are not rushed and can freely make a mess.
The kids and I looked around the Baking with Kids section and decided to make the Dreamy Cream-Filled Cupcakes. We got out the ingredients, measured and mixed.
While the cupcakes were baking and cooling, we got started on our Box Top Station. I wish that I would have thought to make a container for this purpose years ago. It makes collecting Box Tops so much easier.
First, gather your supplies.
Measure the height of your oatmeal container. Cut a piece of scrapbook paper to the same height as the container. Staple to the container. Cut a slit in the top of the container to make a hole for your Box Tops.
Decorate with stickers, fabric tape, and whatever else you would like to make your container yours.
Cut out your Box Tops and add to your container.
After the cupcakes cooled, we filled them with a creamy filling and sprinkled the tops with chocolate chips. It was a great way to spend some quality time with my children, to beat the summer heat and to do something good for our school.
