A List Maker's Life: Birthday Treats

Birthday Treats

Anne Hope was very excited about celebrating her birthday at school this morning.  She and I have been on the hunt for a fun idea for a birthday treat.  In fact, for awhile she wasn't sure she wanted to bring an edible treat at all.  Instead we bought the supplies to pass out a ladybug bookmark project to each of her friends.  I know...we are becoming the teacher's worst enemy;)  Nothing like fifty million little foam stickers to peel with a room full of four and five year olds. 
Last minute Anne Hope changed her mind decided she wanted to make a snack after all.  Knowing how teachers *love* (ha!) cupcakes and crumbs, I wanted to make something outside the traditional birthday snack box.  So, yesterday we did a little blog searching and found this fun suggestion for Tea Cup Biscuits.  They were an instant, easy choice for our tea party loving Fancy Nancy.  Since some of the ingredients are not available at our local stores we improvised  a bit. 
Cherry Lemonade Lifesaves - cut in halves
Colorful Sprinkled Chocolate Disks  - found in the bulk food bins
Strawberry Marshmallows
Scalloped Sugar Cookies & Strawberry Frosting - so very pinkalicious!
I helped out by frosting the center of each saucers before hadning them over to the tea cup assembly line lady!  Anne Hope independently assembled all of the tea cups (which might look more like cocoa mugs since we didn't cut the marshmallows in half). 
We ended up with a pile of tasty tea cups that Anne Hope was more than happy to share.
