Twice a year, Keri’s school puts on a Fall & Spring Festival. Unfortunately, we missed the Fall festival due to being out of town.. so I was really looking forward to the Spring festival! I wanted to help out in every way I could.. so, I did 🙂
This year, the theme for the Spring Festival was biomes. Keri’s class was combined with 2 others and were given the Temperate Forest biome. I was in charge of snacks. I came up with 3 snacks.. a forest berry punch, a forest animal trail mix and forest cupcakes. And of course.. I had to get my craftiness on and help with some decorations too!
I passed the trail mix and the punch over to other parents so I could concentrate on the cupcakes. They needed 200 cupcakes.. oh my. First, I made the trees out of homemade marshmallow fondant. Next were the mini cupcakes. I used a simple white cake recipe that is both easy to make and yummy. I also made a batch of eggless cupcakes so my daughter could have one. I think they turned out really cute!
I also did signs for the snacks & crafts as well as a banner.. check them out!
And of course the banner I did:
All the signs and banner were made using my cricut machine – I used the create a critter cartridge for the animals, simply sweet for the banner, and cuttin up for the letters on the sign. I love my cricut!
But most importantly.. the Spring Festival was for Keri 🙂 She had a blast! (picture is a close up of her.. she was not having all pictures I was taking tonight, so this is her trying to block the camera.. and I caught that beautiful smile in the process.. love it!)
