3D Cupcake Liner Baseball Craft

This weekend we took our daughter to her first Red Sox game.

Having watched the games with her father since the day that she was born, she was excited to go to Fenway. On the drive there, she clapped & cheered as she saw signs with the Red Sox logo on them.

In the park, she had equal enthusiasm as she saw the popcorn & lemonade & witnessed her first live home run.

It was an exciting day for all of us & we might have created a Sox fan for life. To celebrate our trip to the ball park, we made a quick & easy baseball craft.

Cupcake Liner Baseball

All you will need for this is a white cupcake liner, a red & black marker and light brown & green construction paper.

Directions:

Spread out your liner slightly, but do not flatten.

Draw two curved lines on either end of the liner in black marker.

Draw the stitches over the black lines with the red marker. Mai drew in her lines & I did mine.

Draw & cut a bat out of the brown construction paper.

Glue the bat to a green piece of construction paper. Glue the liner baseball to the paper as well, only apply the glue to the outside edges & glue it so that the liner is still puffed out in the center.

Mai added a ball player & a background to her craft.

We finished our baseball craft, but we weren’t quite finished with “our day at the ball park” inspired crafts. We still had one more in us.

Mai ate a lot of junk at the game. It is all part of the experience after all.

I had asked Mai what her favorite part of going to the game was. She told me that it was the cotton candy.

After she told me this, I wanted us to make a cotton candy craft using cotton balls, so we squeezed in one more craft.

Cotton Ball Cotton Candy Craft

All you will need for this craft is a piece of construction paper for your base, a piece of white construction paper (scrap will work good because you only need a small piece), pastel colored paint, glue, a magic marker & cotton balls.

Directions:

Cut a long skinny triangle out of white construction paper. Draw diagonal lines on it with a magic marker.

Place your paint on a palette. Draw in the cotton candy shape over the cone to give a guideline to your child for where to place the cotton balls. You can either dip the cotton balls in the paint & then glue them into place over your cone or you may glue them first & then dab them with a paint brush later.

This is a simple craft for your child that is a great exercise in fine motor skills. That & it is cute.
