I didn’t “grow up” with my boys. I sort of figure I just lucked into the “ready made” variety…
(Just in case your wondering, in my world they pop in at about two years +)
Here’s the thing. Since I came into kids in a bit of a different way, early on people were always trying to give me advice. I got A LOT of advice and yet, there are some very important things that no one told me…
I was not warned to look out for those nasty stray Legos left on the floor. There is nothing in this world and I mean NOTHING that hurts more than stepping on a Lego with bare feet.
I definitely wasn’t advised of the importance in checking for fruit snacks stuck to the back of your seat in the car before suggesting to friends that you drive.
No one told me how much more I would love their Dad after watching him play with them for hours, or even minutes.
Kids break things. ‘Nough said.
You will throw away many, many things that will make you feel guilty. If you don’t? Well, you will have an avalanche of paper somewhere.
Stuff will be sticky and by stuff, I mean everything.
And I NEVER, NEVER, NEVER thought I would find crumbs in so many places…Crumbs on the counter, crumbs in the couch cushions, crumbs in pants pockets…It never ends.
And so, for a while, I quit making cupcakes. I know?!
However, I have found the perfect solution to messy cupcakes. Cupcake to go containers.
Cupcake To Go Containers
- clear plastic cups
- cute cupcake wrappers or baking cups
- paper straws
- cellophane bags
- baker’s twine or curly ribbon
The beauty of these little containers is that they are so simple to assemble and look so pretty.
The addition of the straw stabilizes the entire assembly, so that even if your to-go container tips a bit the cupcake frosting will not get mashed all over.
They’re great for party thank you’s, classroom treats, or let the kids use a fork to eat out of the container.
What are your kid containing secrets???
