The Lorax Cupcakes {Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss}

Hooray for Friday!

Little Man has a fun play group that meets together each week.  This Wednesday, it was our turn to host.  To introduce our "S is for Seuss" Mommy School unit, I decided to throw a little Dr. Seuss birthday party!  We made Cat in the Hat paper headbands, read some Dr. Seuss books, and ate Lorax cupcakes!

Of course the cupcakes were a big hit with the boys.

Little Man and his friends enjoyed every bite!

(Little Man wasn't loving the idea of wearing his hat!)

These were so fun to make!

* I just tinted my favorite frosting orange using orange food coloring.

* I used white peanut butter M&M's for the eyes, and drew the eyeballs on with black icing.

* I used the edges of Oreos for the moustaches.  I dipped them in yellow melts and drizzled some extra yellow chocolate for the "furry" look.

* I used a white Chicket for the nose and a part of a red Lifesaver for the mouth!

Are you going to see the new "The Lorax" movie?

We just might be going on a Mommy/son date to the movies today!

Enjoy your weekend!

Monster Play Date

Let's start out Summer Camp with a BANG!
In case you missed this post...
Every Friday throughout the summer, fabulous guests will be sharing creative ideas based on a children's story book.
Today, I am going to share MY idea to kick-start this fun series.
Did I mention that there would be roaring?
Oh yes.  Big, loud monstrous roars!
Recently, Little Man and Cousin got together for a monster play date based on one of our very favorite children's books:
One of the best.books.ever. Seriously!! The perfect story about friendly and lovable (yet scary) monsters!
Yes there were cupcakes.
And games.
Even dancing.
Are you ready to see all of the gory, adorable details??
