Simple Bible Snack: Lamb Cupcakes
This simple Bible snack turns an ordinary cupcake into a lamb.
- Plain cupcakes,
- white icing,
- vanilla wafers broken in half,
- shredded coconut,
- M&M’s candies,
- 1-inch pieces of red string licorice,
- paper towels,
- and plastic knives.
Have kids remove the paper from their cupcakes. Then, turn their cupcakes upside down on a paper towel. Have them frost the cupcakes all over and sprinkle it with coconut. Then, press a wafer half to each side of the cupcake for the lamb ears. Use two M&M’s candies for eyes and two pieces of licorice for the nose and mouth. Tell kids that Jesus is often called the Lamb of God because he gave his life for us. Then have them enjoy their snack.
