Whooo is back at school and loving it?! We hope that your household has successfully ushered in the first day of school, and are getting excited about the fall. Lots of things remind us of the wonderful fall season, and these cute owls are definitely on the list.
These adorable owl cupcakes would make a great afternoon treat for your studious flock. They are kid friendly, and really fun!
- Box of cake mix
- White cookie/cake icing
- Oreo cookies
- Sixlet candies
- Shaved almonds
- Coco Puffs cereal
- Goldfish crackers or Cheez-It crackers
Use the directions on the cake mix box to make cupcakes. Let them cool completely, and then ice the tops. Your mini pastry chefs can decide if they would like to create a brown owl or white owl. If they would like a brown owl, have them put a handful of Coco Puffs into a resealable baggie and crush. Sprinkle cereal crumbs on top of the cupcake. Carefully twist apart two Oreo cookies to use as the owl’s eyes. You’ll need to use two so that you can have two eyes that are covered in the yummy white frosting! Place a Sixlet candy on the icing to finish off the owl’s eyes. Now using your shaved almonds create wings for the owls by making staggered rows. Your final touch will be the beak. Let your kids use their creativity. They can shape a Goldfish cracker into the beak, or even bite off the corner of a Cheez-It cracker.
This treat is a hoot to make at home or at school! For more kid friendly owl crafts join us for this week’s Lil Sprouts Book Club at www.simplysprouteducate.com .
