2nd Grade Cupcakes with Values

This is a similar lesson to the ice cream cones. On black card stock we draw a cupcake, using simple shapes. We draw in the drippy frosting and the cherry.
The wonderful thing about the Crayola Chalk sets is, most of the colors have a light and dark shade. They get to choose a set for the wrapper and for the frosting. I have them start with the darker shade and fill in the section, then add in the light on one side. For the cake part they can use brown and black. I have them start with the brown then use the black very lightly on the dark side. I let them add sprinkles, the lines on their wrapper and a sparkle on their cherry.

I have them use their eraser to clean up any smudges and I spray with aqua net hair spray as a fixative.
