Rumor has it that today, July 14th, is Laura Numeroff’s birthday! So in honor of this special occasion I thought I’d share what we’ve done with one of our favorite books of hers— If You Give a Cat a Cupcake.
If You Give a Cat a Cupcake by Laura Numeroff
Summary: A little girl gives a cat a cupcake, which makes the cat want to add sprinkles. From there a mess occurs and the girl and the cat have several adventures which end up with the cat being reminded of sprinkles and cupcakes.
We made this cat out of a soup can! Isn’t it cute?
We used the cat along with a cupcake poem. We also used the cat for a counting game. My daughter would roll a die and then “feed” the cat that amount of cupcakes.
We made our own paper cupcakes.
And we made a water color cupcake version.
We had our own cupcake birthday party with our favorite cupcake and cookie toy set.
We did some cupcake patterning with cupcake foam stickers and a cupcake pan.
And made some playdough cupcakes too.
Of course it would also be the perfect reason to bake and eat your own cupcakes too! (For birthday printables and ideas check out what we did during my blog birthday bash. There’s a cupcake and candles game and more!)
Happy Birthday Laura Numeroff!
