After baking, they looked like this:
I assembled the monkey cupcake by putting the cookie on the face like the monkey snout. I put a dab of white frosting with mini chocolate chips on top for the eyes and drew on the nostrils and mouth with chocolate frosting. The two ears are mini cookies I found at the grocery store. I ended up putting a small banana candy on top of frosting for the mouth.
For the gifts bags, I used brown bags and printed off a monkey picture, putting each child's name in the placeholder.
I added a dab of color with markers and hung some monkeys on the side of each bag.
It was a barrel of fun for the kiddos! Hope your party is fun too.
