Bug Day

Jun 01 2012 Liz Call

The other day, Mr. C had a friend over and instead of letting them run around, play with toys and watch a movie (which they did too), I wanted to do something a little more involved.

I decided to do a BUG THEME!  We sang a song about bees, talked about all the different types of bugs, made a craft and made a treat!  I don’t own the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar, but I would’ve read that too if I had had it.  (It was too hot to go on a bug hunt.)

Using an egg carton I cut in half, we painted them and made our very own caterpillars.

 I think the boys would’ve been happy painting all day if we weren’t going to run out of paint.  I found some Crayola brand washable paint that I love!  That is what I usually use when doing any hand print crafts and it washes up like a dream!

Mommy’s is on the left and Mr. C’s is on the right.  

 For our treat I knew I wanted to make cupcakes that looked like they had dirt on them and had worms coming out.  I had the kids crush up their own bag of oreos and sprinkle them on their cupcakes.  They loved that part and Mr. C couldn’t wait to try his “dirt”.  They each got 2 worms to put on top of their cupcakes.

I found this colorful tape at Target and knew I wanted to have Mr. C have a go with it.  (A few weeks ago he emptied an entire roll of washi tape, taping from one side of the kitchen counter to the other and all around.)

Well the night before “bug day”, I had made some green beans with dinner and instead of throwing the cans away, I put them in the dishwasher.  I decided to make cakes in the tin cans.  I’ve never done it before and it was SO easy.

I sprayed the insides of the cans with non stick spray, made my cake mix and filled them about 2/3 of the way full, cooked them the same time as the cupcakes (about 20 minutes) and they were done!  I let them cool and then let Mr. C decorate them with tape.  I frosted the tops, covered them with crushed oreos, poked a couple holes for the worms to go into.  It was that easy!

Last nights dinner becomes todays dessert!!
You could also run a knife around the outside and they come right out! Perfect for making double layer mini cakes!

Fun day for the kids when it was too hot to play outside!
