This week the heat is absolutely scorching out here in Arizona. It was a sizzling high of 117F degrees yesterday and the low was only 90F! In the AZ summer, it's common practice to go from your air-conditioned house, to your air-conditioned car to somewhere else, well, air-conditioned. My girls are getting restless with their time outside limited by the heat warning temps, so I decided to make it a day of fun that was mostly indoors.
In the morning, we started with swim classes, before the heat became too blistering. We decided to continue with the water theme for the rest of our day. Our next stop was to visit the aquarium. My 3 year old wanted to bake afterwards. So we headed over to the grocery store to pick up ingredients and soak up their A/C. They had a dozen cupcakes on super sale. I thought better to buy those than heat up my oven. I still wanted to make it fun and thought, "let's turn baking into craft with candies!" That's how these cute little turtle cupcakes came to be. We enjoyed eating them while watching the Little Mermaid.
