A FUN way for kids to celebrate!
Rosie turned three last weekend and we celebrated all week long! One of Rosie's favorite birthday activities was making her own pretend birthday cake. I set up a birthday bakery in the bath to allow for easy clean up but you could set this activity up out of the bath if you prefer.
I filled the tub with water and added a drop of vanilla extract to make the bath smell just like birthday cake. Then I sprinkled confetti in the water and all over the tub. We use a mesh bath strainer to keep the confetti from going down the drain. I also hung some birthday decorations. They were purchased from The Dollar Tree so I was not worried about them getting wet.
I gathered all the ingredients Rosie would need to make a pretend birthday cake- a pie pan, kitchen gadgets, and a birthday sensory dough.
I made our birthday dough using our clean mud recipe only I added confetti and a few drops of vanilla extract. It was the perfect dough for making birthday cake.
I made icing for Rosie to use by mixing shaving cream, food coloring, and Duncan Hines Frosting Powder in a bowl. Frosting powder can be found in the baking aisle for under $1 and smells amazing! Once the icings were mixed I put them in zip lock bags so Rosie could pipe the icings onto her cake.
Rosie had a blast making her very own birthday cake!
I also gave her confetti eggs to use which are always LOTS of fun!
Once she was done I lit the candle and we sang happy birthday before she made a wish.
This was such a fun way to further celebrate Rosie's third birthday!
