T-Ball Season End Celebration
Today was the last day of T-Ball. I think the kids improved so much from the beginning of the season to the end. It was impressive to watch! Being a coach is hard, being a coach with the kids on the team is harder. Hard but rewarding as well. I didn’t get any pictures this season because I was being the coach – luckily my mom came to a game and took some so I will end up with at least a few.
After the game today we had a quick ceremony to give the kids their pictures and medals. I decided to make them cupcakes and gave them a bag of apple slices with a baseball printable attached with their name.
Materials needed for Cupcakes
- 1 box of preferred cake mix (plus ingredients listed on box)
- Cupcake papers (24)
- 1 can of preferred white frosting
- 1 tube of red frosting
I mixed and baked the cupcakes as directed on the box. After cooling I frosted with a layer of white frosting. After the white frosting I added the red lines to make them look like cupcakes. I bought a premade tube of red frosting but did not buy the tips as I have a ton of Wilton stuff at home. I figured there would be at least a circle tip on the end of the bag of frosting – I figured wrong. I ended up cutting the whole end off and squeezing it into one of my disposable Wilton bags to use the tips I already had in the house. Long story short – buy the 99¢ package of tips.
The kids inhaled the cupcakes today so I’m glad I rushed and made them!
The packages of apple slices I got courtesy of CrunchPak. I received coupons from them when I was hosting my #DisneySide at Home Celebration and had a few left. This was a perfect healthy gift for the kids on the team. I used a printable I found at Salt and Pepper Moms for baseball snack tags. They worked perfectly – I printed them out, wrote the kids names on them and stapled them onto the bags of apple slices.
I had a blast being the kids T-Ball coach and am glad that we finished the season on a happy note.
