Cupcake Craft Template Instructions

Follow these simple steps to create wonderful cupcake art:

Step 1: Download Free Printable Cupcake Template

For our cut and past project, download the large cupcake cut out template and print it.

Step 2: Cut Small Pieces

After you have printed out your cupcake pdf file, set it aside and let your children cut small pieces out of colored paper.

Therefore give them small pieces of your construction paper and let them cut as many as they want too.

In case your children are too small to cut, simply let them tear the paper with their hands.

Step 3: Collect Cutouts

When they get bored of cutting, take a plastic container or zip log bag to collect them.

Step 4: Paste

Now get your cupcake printable and show your toddlers how to paste the small cutouts onto the birthday cupcake template.

To make it easier for my children I m using Elmer’s disappearing purple glue stick. This way they can see where the glue is already applied.

Make sure not to throw away your leftover pieces. Simply put them back in your zip log bag and save them for your next craft project.

Step 5: Decorate Your Cupcake Templates

After your glue is tried, take your crayons and let your children color the rest of these adorable Birthday cupcake coloring pages.
Maybe even cut along the cupcake outlines and make an adorable card out of them.

You can use them as a Birthday card or Birthday invitation. Simply add your text on the back of your card and you are done.
Pretty easy isn’t it?
