Summer Fun Activity: Teddy at the Beach Cupcakes

Summer Fun Activity: Teddy at the Beach CupcakesWhether you are looking for a fun way to wrap up summer or are already into your new year and would like a fun “welcome back,” young ones will enjoy these teddy-at-the-beach cupcakes!

We found four different, but equally inviting, recipes to give you ideas for creating your own:

  1. Teddy-at-the-Beach Cupcakes
    Favorite, and easy, from Betty Crocker begins with a box cake mix.
  2. Bears at the Beach
    Kraft version that utilizes their whipped topping tinted blue for water and flattened marshmallows for beach blankets.
  3. Beach Bear Cupcakes
    This one from Within the Kitchen is for the more ambitious.  The cake is made from scratch, divided into four parts, and each part is colored a different color for a rainbow effect.
  4. Shark and Beach Cupcakes
    A Martha Stewart version featuring homemade chocolate cupcakes with sand…and sharks!

Add gummy worms, gumballs, teddy grahams, graham cracker crumbs, fruit leather, Life Saver Gummies, whipped topping, marshmallows, Goldfish. Put the creative genius of the entire family to work.  Really your imagination is the limit!

If you want to find at least a tangential educational goal here, use this time to talk nouns, or adjectives, or simply follow directions!
