Jake and Cate love to pretend play like they are cooking, so I took out the cupcake liners and cupcake pans they made pretend cupcakes.
We added candles to the cupcakes to sing Happy Birthday. After they put the candles in their cupcakes I had them count them and match the correct number to the candles.
Since Jake knows his numbers I did a little math with him.
After we did number recognition and some simple math, the kids wanted me to light the candles to sing and they blew them out.
Was too cute!!
