Our grandchildren, ages 2 and 5, were coming to visit and we needed some ideas of what kind of food to have available. Their mother sent a list of foods they liked. After a post at Yum Yum Divas, the Divas dove in offering up suggestions.
When my kids were young we made ice cream cone cupcakes. They were always a huge hit and their teachers would call and request them for special events. I used the pointed end sugar cones and stood them in the oven by cutting circles out of the top of a cardboard box to use as a rack. Once they were frosted and topped with sprinkles and a gumdrop "cherry" they looked like perfect ice cream cones. I must have made thousands of them back then. I sure wish now that I' had owned a camera at the time.

Thanks for the kind words, Sharron.
Zany, I might have gotten more mileage from your cupcakes. When they walked in and saw them, the 5 year old got big eyes and said,"Are those for us?". She was happy that we had done something special for her and it kinda broke the ice.

I created this cubit to share ways of motivating families, especially children, to get outside, and activities to do once everyone is outside. Being outdoors is a wonderfully fun and healthy activity. Let's share indoor unplugged activities, as well.
