It was a sports-theme but really, it was a Pinterest birthday! All Pinterest ideas. First, I made the ball cupcakes. I only made footballs, basketballs, and baseballs. The soccer ball I attempted looked like an eyeball so I stopped after one. They turned out pretty cute and the boys were excited to pick the ones they liked.

I also made rainbow fruit skewers. The boys absolutely loved those. I used strawberries, oranges, pineapple, green grapes, blueberries, and purple grapes. The recipe called for cantaloupe for the orange fruit and that would have been better. The oranges were a huge mess to cut but tasty!
Finally, we made the zip lock baggie soft-serve icecream. It was hilarious. The kids were a lot more impressed with this activity than I was expecting. It was fun to have something active to do that actually accomplished something. (In front of the boys in the picture, I didn't get a good close-up of it.) I think they were as thrilled with the toppings as anything - gummy worms, chocolate chips, and sprinkles.
