I always notice this time of year that student behaviors begin to escalate a bit- for the worse! Even though I have an amazing class this year, I thought they could use some positive reinforcement. My school participates in the Character Counts program, so these Character Cupcakes will work perfectly! I found the trays below at Dollar Tree. They had round, rectangular, and oval ones. I wanted something a little different than the regular round or rectangular baking pans.
Below is the glue (purchased at Joann's) I used for adhering the ribbon and title topper. The glue has a really strong bond and it is my favorite to use. Sometimes hot glue just peels right off of projects like this. I added magnetic tape (also purchased at Joann's) to the backs of the cupcakes. If you laminate the cupcakes and the title topper, they will last forever!
Here is my finished cupcake tray. I plan to have 12 cupcakes be the goal for the class, but you can print as many cupcakes as you like. I think it would be adorable to have cartoon character cupcakes for the class when they reach their goal. I have seen really cute Sesame Street and Sponge Bob cupcakes!I hope you are able to use Character Cupcakes in your class. If you would like larger toppers, just let me know. I didn't want the title topper to overpower my tray, but if your tray is larger, you might want larger toppers.
