Alternatives to Cupcakes

Cupcakes are delicious, but eating 30 in one school year can mean lots of extra sugar for our fourth graders. Below are some ideas for alternatives to birthday cupcakes. Please send in your birthday item with your child in the morning.


  • Donate a book to the class
  • Donate a game to play during Friday Free Choice (such as Pictionary, Life, Legos, Scrabble, etc.)
  • Fruit wedges such as apple or oranges
  • Prepackaged small bags of popcorn, veggie chips, or pretzels
  • Mini carrots with dip
  • Cheese and Crackers
  • Grapes
