Here’s a way to make some super cute and super easy muffin toppers! They look great with our wild-berry muffins and are a good activity to get into while you wait for the muffins to bake (especially if you have antsy little bakers around).

You’ll need

  • toothpicks
  • washi tape (in a few different designs)
  • scissors (big ones if mom is cutting, littler ones for smaller hands)

tear off 3-4” of tape, lay it face up on the table

place the toothpick in the middle

fold the tape over onto itself

you’ll have uneven ends, so you can trim them into flat or pointed edges.  If you’ve got a good little cutter on your team, let them help with this part!

The best part is mounting the flags into a pile of muffins, and then sharing them with friends!

I am a certified K-12 Art Educator who lives, works, and blogs from Philadelphia, PA. I have a background in the studio arts (printmaking, photography, fiber arts and design), and am interested in making, collaborating, collecting, and recording things. One of my main goals as a grown-up is to help kids increase their visual literacy, by exposing them to art history, introducing vocabulary, and teaching kinesthetic art making skills. These lessons in visual literacy often take place in an intentional classroom setting, but just as well might happen at home, working on a project!
