Baking Cups Art

Baby Bear was choosing a snack from the pantry when he spotted a package of colorful baking cups. He was so excited about the unknown package that he forgot about his snack. He carried the baking cups over to the table where he had just finished coloring and looked at me expectantly with his new found "art supply" in hand. Yep, that's my boy!

I opened the package and handed him five of the brightly spotted baking cups. I thought he was going to color inside the cups like he did for the coffee filter butterflies, but instead he reached for a piece of construction paper and the glue. I helped him open the glue and watched in interest to see what he had in mind.

At first, he poured glue onto the construction paper and stuck the baking cups to the paper. Once a few of the cups were added, he started filling them with glue (no surprise there... Baby Bear absolutely loves pouring things to and from containers!). He stuck and unstuck the little papers until they were just how he wanted them, and he had a great time in the process. I hadn't thought of using baking cups as an art supply, but Baby Bear acted like that's what they were made for. Now I have several ideas in mind of other art projects we can do using baking cups! I adore art project that my son comes up with all on his own!
