Winter cupcakes


Some of my goals for the year were to live in the moment and to help others (an extension of be Thankful goal). What a better way to start that off than by making cupcakes with the girls.

My girls LOVE to bake. It's one of their favorite activities and it teaches them a life skill. So I try to let them bake fairly often. They wanted to make Olaf cupcakes, but my cupcake game isn't that strong. Luckily they settled for blue frosting and white/ sparkle sprinkles instead. ๐Ÿ˜‚


Honestly, it was a mess. But they had a blast! What is that saying? A messy house is a happy house? Well our house was definitely happy during the making of these cupcakes and I am sure I will be finding sprinkles for quite some time๐Ÿ˜‚. But was such a fun time with the girls I would do it again in a heartbeat.

When the girls and I bake we like to think of a family (or a couple of families depending on the treats and how many) to give some treats to. I feel like it helps the girls feel like they are doing a small act of service. They get excited to deliver them and they feel so good about themselves afterwards. I love watching them find joy in helping others, so I try to make sure we do some for of this at least once a month.

I know that giving away goodies is not a huge act of service or a huge help to others. But it is something that we enjoy and a great way to get the girls to think of others.

I am always looking for ways that the girls can help others. If you know of any service ideas small kids can participate in I would love some extra ideas!

  1. Aww I love that you did this with them!! Being in the moment with the mess always pays off. I think having them donate toys or clothes is great. They learn to not hold material items so close!

  4. I love this idea so much! My kids love to bake, they are a little young to do real acts of service but I think taking about it from a young age and setting good examples as a parent who does them is a great way to start!
