I decided that Maren was old enough to enjoy a very sweet project. Baking cupcakes. ;) She helped me mix, distribute the cupcake papers, pour, and even decorate!
You should of seen her eyes when those cupcakes transformed from "goo" to perfectly (well not really perfect) formed little cakes! She said "wooooooow."
Then I whipped out the frosting and the sprinkles, and she went to town! I really was the one who put the frosting on most of them, and then I told her to "sprinkle" the cupcakes. She kept sprinkling on the same cupcake over and over, the one in the corner closest to her.
