schoolhouse rock! cupcakes.....! school starts after labor day around here and i am trying to get the kids back into the swing of things with some schoolhouse rock! themed cupcakes.... you remember those cartoons (for those of us old enough to remember saturday morning cartoons when you had to wake up super early to watch cartoons 'cause you didn't have stations dedicated to cartoons....i know what?? no cartoon channels 24/7? nope, you had to get up early and watch them)....and schoolhouse rock! actually taught you some stuff and were like little mini cartoons that were played in between the actual shows.....i still say i learned my multiplication tables by watching them! ...and although the kids haven't seen them on tv, we bought the dvds and play them in the car on long rides and they actually do love them too (yay!)

...there are so many that were, numbers, history, grammer, but here are a few of my favs...

3 is a magic number (3, 6, 9...12, 15, 18...21, 24, 27...30!) made with frosting and candy melt...and electricity (...flip that switch and what do you get??) which is a candy melt sign....

the infamous bill from how a bill becomes a law (made from tootsie roll, edible food writers, and candy melt) and lolly, lolly, lolly get your adverbs here (suppose your going nut gathering...your buddy wants to know when and where!) sign made from a graham cracker and candy melt....

the WOW! from interjections (so when you're happy HURRAY! or sad AW! or frightened EEEEEK! or mad RATS! or excited WOW! or glad HEY!) and the tea party cup from no more kings (rockin' and a rollin', splishin' and a splashin' over the horizon what do you see?), tea cup made from tootsie roll

and you get some fun back to school cuppies to celebrate the new school year...hard to believe i have a 2nd grader and 2 (TWO!) kindergarteners!  what the what is that all about?

anyhoo, it was really hard to pick my fav schoolhouse rock! cartoons to make into cuppies, there are so many awesome ones and they definitely remind me of being a kid, about the age of my 2nd grader so i'm syked they are into it as well...

as always, thanks for stopping by and have an awesome week! what's you're favorite schoolhouse rock cartoon from back in the day?
