Threading with Cupcake Cases


While looking in my pantry this morning I spotted some brightly coloured cupcake cases just begging to be used I pulled them out with every intention of making flowers with them. The idea of flowers quickly waned when I remembered an old Childhood 101 post where they had threaded metallic cupcake cases onto pipe cleaners.

You will need
Small Cupcake Cases
Kids Needle or Toothpick
Ribbon or String or something similar
Scissors

To Make
1 .Make holes in the bottom of the cupcake cases2 .If you don't have a kids needle firmly tape the ribbon to the toothpick3 .Tie a knot at the end of the ribbon so the cupcake cases can't come off
4 .Invite your child to thread all the cupcake cases onto the ribbon5 .Once done display their wonderful threading ...

They look so colourful and fun hanging in the window
or how about make it into bunting for a birthday party!

Please excuse the lack of children in these photos Liam is miserable with a cold and I think Grandma has decided to keep Neevah at her house as she went for a visit this morning and has yet to return.

I was thinking of not returning her for a week or two...she was having a lovely time with the dolls house and pretending to sleep in Grandmas bed but after a trip to the market with Grandma she discovered there was a suprise in a bag that had to be shared with Liam she thought she would go home and share.

Thanks Becky! Neevah had fun threading late this afternoon then she ran around the house with them trailing behind her saying 'Look! like a kite'
