While I had absolutely no plans for making these when I walked into Cost Plus. Instead I was looking for two chairs for our new big desk. When I saw the small sour rainbows and after reading Amy's post and how she couldn't find these...I had to get them.
Whenever I do projects like this with the kids I have to let go of my idea of everything being perfect. I let go of some of my ideas, my plans, my expectations and let us be a bit messy. The first thing the kids changed was the rainbow cupcake part. They wanted JUST green. "The ground would be just green mom." There might have been a DUH thrown in for effect.
But, the best part was a proud 12 year old saying they were the coolest ever and could be in a craft book.
I guess our imperfect cupcakes, really were pretty perfect after all!
