We like to place everything on the table and let the little ones decorate and play as they wish. You can direct them if you’d like but more times than not, they enjoy the time to have open-ended play. And of course we enjoy the playtime too! Ours like to layer their cupcakes and decorate them with beads and gems.

They had fun placing them in their muffin match up pans too and putting them in their play kitchen oven to bake. 

You could also roll out a long piece of playdough and spiral it on top of a playdough cupcake. Is it just us (and our sweet tooth) or does this look delicious?!

Our little ones also like to put pony beads on top of pipe cleaners or candles and then blow them off as though they were blowing out real candles. What other supplies could you use to decorate your playdough cupcakes? Did your little ones (and you!) enjoy this playdough activity? Would you believe this kept them entertained for 3 HOURS?! We’d say this was a definite recipe for success! How did YOUR playdough cupcakes turn out? We’d love to see them! Tag us on social media #theartkit.
