Muffin Tin Monday - Animals (Circus)


Muffin Tin Monday's theme for today was "circus". Because we haven't been to a circus and I don't think my girls really know what one is, I decided to just do animals instead. We had lots of fun with this one! My girls have started asking when Muffin Tin Monday is, and even have been playing with a tiny muffin tin they have in their play kitchen, pretending its Muffin Tin Monday. They were so excited when I told them that yes, it was finally Monday and we were having a special lunch!


We had - ducks (Meijer organic "goldfish"), animal cookies, water, a bear with frozen blueberries (bears like to eat blueberries you know!), cheese animals, and chicken nugget pieces on toothpics. I make the pics myself by putting a sticker on a toothpick with paper on the back and then cutting it out. Lucy said the pics were her favorite part. Both girls ate all of their lunch plus more cheese and nuggets too. :)


I'm having fun with this and the girls are already looking forward to next week. If you haven't done so already, you have one more day left to enter the Le Creuset silicone baking cup giveaway. I'll close it tomorrow and choose a winner. Thanks for stopping by.
