Poet in a Cupcake Day is celebrated on the first Friday in April. In 2018, that’s April 6.
How to Celebrate:
Poet in a Cupcake Day is a fun way to bring our summer cut-out poets into the classroom or the home, for a tasty introduction to poetry. As we’ve learned from sharing poetry and tea with the boys, a little confection goes a long way to making encounters with poets and poems fun for people of all ages.
It’s easy to celebrate. Just cut out your poets, color, and put them on popsicle sticks. Insert into your favorite cupcake! Of course, you might like to read a little about your poet before deciding what kind of cupcake might be the best sweet pedestal. And maybe you’d like to read a poem by the poet, too.
Not up for actual sweets? Watch for our printable cupcake collection, that can be cut and colored—ready to put our poets on (or some of their best-known verses).
