Playgroup art & craft: Black paper painting

We have loads of black paper at playgroup, which seldom gets used. So now and then I like to mix up some whitish shades of paint and let the children paint on black for a change. The light colours on the dark paper provide a striking contrast, and some glitter adds a bit of sparkle.

On Monday we followed up our black paper painting with some cupcakes to celebrate R's 5th birthday:

I like to use this recipe, which makes delicious, light cupcakes that cook very quickly. Had to make a second batch the next day for a kindergarten birthday celebration - and R's party will be this weekend. Lots of baking going on around here!
