10 Craft Ideas To Do With Cupcake Coloring Pages

It goes without saying that all children love cupcakes.

If those coloring pages have stacked up and you’re unsure what to do, try one or more of these great craft ideas.

1. A Lifelike Cupcake

Once the cupcake is colored, give the youngster cotton balls to arrange on the “icing” section to make it look thick and fluffy. Top this with a thin coat of glitter in any color.

Next, roll up a small piece of construction paper and add a short piece of string to its top to serve as a candle. 

Tissue paper can be used to make the cupcake wrapper look real, and a red pom-pom placed near the top as a cherry is a great finishing touch!

2. Classroom Fun With Cupcakes

Groups of youngsters can work on this craft together, resulting in several adorable ornaments to decorate the room.

Once the children have colored and cut out their cupcakes, each child should glue his or her cutout to a craft stick.

In groups of seven or eight, the craft sticks should be glued together at the base to make cute pinwheel-style ornaments that can be displayed anywhere.

3. A Cupcake Bookmark

To make this adorable bookmark, you only need the coloring page, some cardboard and glue, and a large paperclip.

Once the child has colored the cupcake, it should be glued to thin cardboard. 

When it is carefully cut out, it should be attached to the small end of a large paperclip with a piece of pipe cleaner.

The other end can be fitted down over a section of the book just like a bookmark!

4. A Cupcake Flower

If your garden needs pizzazz, let your youngster make this innovative flower ornament.

Once the cupcake is colored, it should be cut out and glued to a flower, the latter of which can be drawn freehand by your child. A flower can be traced from a template if necessary.

Next, a long craft stick or wooden knitting needle should be painted green with craft paint and attached to the cupcake.

Green construction paper can be used to make leaves, and this “cupcake flower” can grace your garden.

5. A Cute Birthday Banner

If your child’s birthday is coming up and those coloring pages are gathering dust, have him or her make a colorful birthday banner.

Additional pages should be used to make a paper chain when the cupcakes are cut from the page.

Each cupcake should have a small hole cut in the top, through which thin string can be threaded.

The cupcakes are then attached, danging approximately an inch from the paper chain. This great birthday ornament can be used to decorate the party room.

6. Cupcake Money Holder

To start this craft, have your youngster color, cut out a cupcake, and set it aside.

Next, some holes should be poked in a styrofoam cup, then turned upside down. 

Decorate the styrofoam cup with glitter, puffy paint, or simple, free-hand art, and glue the cupcakes to the very top.

With a marker, the youngster can write “saving for a treat” at the bottom of the cup, and you can start the child out with a rolled-up dollar pushed into one of the holes!

7. Design a Cupcake Wreath

This is an ideal classroom craft; all that’s necessary is a generous amount of brown craft paper and coloring pages.

The packing paper should be twisted into a large wreath. The more you twist, the firmer it will become.

Once the youngsters have colored and cut out their cupcakes, they can be glued around the wreath’s circumference.

This can be done in collage style or in a specific pattern for cheerful classroom decorations.

8. Decorate a Cake Container

Your child will have a ball dressing up an ordinary cake container with cupcake cutouts.

Let him or her color and cut out as many as desired and arrange them around the outer surface of the cake lid.

They can be glued with invisible glue, and the artwork is sealed with a thin coat of acrylic spray to keep it nice for a long time.

9. Comical Deep Dish Cupcakes

To make a comical poster, give each youngster a cupcake wrapper, and have them flatten the wrappers down onto a piece of construction paper as a background for their artwork.

The cupcake wrappers should be lined with a layer of cotton batting or cotton balls. Next, the youngsters should glue their cupcake cutouts to the cotton layer.

This makes it look as if they’re real cupcakes being unwrapped. The background can be embellished with glitter, stickers, or freestyle designs for a great piece of framable artwork.

10. A Birthday Calendar

Even if children are still learning the months, they usually know when their birthdays are!  This fun craft involves making a special calendar page featuring the child’s birthday.

A piece of poster board turned vertically is perfect for this craft, and the top portion should feature the cupcake once it’s finished. It can be glued or stapled to this section.

On the bottom, the child can use a ruler to create the calendar page for his or her birthday month and draw an extra cupcake in that square!
