This art activity was inspired by Helen Oxenbury's It's My Birthday. See all our celebratory activities here.
Create a work of art that looks good enough to eat! Young pastry chefs can scour your shelves of art supplies and find just the right ingredients to decorate a “cake” that will never go stale.
- Construction paper
- Hole punch
- Tissue paper
- Cut a round piece of cardboard to be the cake top.
- Paint the cardboard to resemble an iced cake
- Allow the paint to dry.
- Use the hole punch to make “sprinkles” for the cake. (Using the hole punch is good for fine motor skills.)
- Glue the “sprinkles” on the cake.
- Cut pieces of tissue paper and crumple into balls then glue to the cake top.
- Glue pompoms to the cake top.
