Muffin Tin Monday

Monday's have become a very busy day for us. We go to MOPS in the morning and by the time we get home for lunch everything seems rushed in order to get everyone down for a nap in time. I wasn't even going to do a muffin tin today (and the theme was super cute, Kebabs) but at the last minute decided we would throw one together to brighten our day (it's a rainy, dreary day here.)Here is little Miss A's muffin tin:She had bananas, marshmallows, grapes, a STAR PB&J, cheese crackers & juice. I … [Read more...]

All About Aubrey

Today is Monday and that means it's Muffin Tin Monday. We haven't been able to participate in a while with our crazy schedule but we were thrilled to get in on the action today.

AubreyWhen were you born? January 22How old are you? TwoWho is your mommy? You are, mommy.What … [Read more...]

Apple Picking – MTM

I love fall, it's one of my favorite times of the year. I love all the rich colors, the warm clothes, the crisp air in the morning, the smell of cinnamon, apples and pumpkins and of course Halloween. I had the opportunity several years ago to go apple picking in upstate NY and I immediately feel in love with this fall tradition. Today's MTM theme is apples and as I was trying to come up with ideas it struck me that I could use this great "apple picking" tradition.Since we live in Texas and it … [Read more...]

Under the Big Top – MTM

Last night I checked Her Cup Overfloweth's blog to see what the theme for Muffin Tin Monday was. I was thrilled to see she had picked a Circus theme, what fun. I quickly figured out what we were going to have in our muffin tin, but wanted to create a craft/activity to go with the theme. after some searching and a few ideas later one kept nagging at me. At 10:30 at night I decided we needed to have a circus tent to play with. I saw some adorable ideas out in blogland, like this and this, but … [Read more...]

Here is what was in our muffin tin...Pizza Sauce, mozzarella cheese, turkey pepperoni, mushrooms, black olives, red bell pepper and cheddar cheese.Everyone got an English Muffin that they could use to create their faces. Parker and … [Read more...]

Trains, Planes & Automobiles – MTM

Today's theme for MTM was Trains, Planes & Automobiles. I have to admit this one was not an easy theme for me, not to mention what I did come up with didn't fit in our muffin tin. But once again little Miss A. loved lunch and enjoyed "playing" with her food. Her airplane was doing some amazing tricks and her choo-choo train kept welcoming everyone "All Aboard."Here is our muffin tin:Front Row - Spare parts - blueberry "wheels", bannana "wheels" & pretzel "body parts"Back Row - candy … [Read more...]

Celebration

Today's MTM theme was celebration/party. I had some really cute ideas for today's theme, however with our busy schedule the past few days and our music class this morning a muffin tin lunch was not in the cards (we went out for pizza instead). I could not pass up the opportunity to participate in such a fun theme so we whipped up a quick muffin tin, added some pizazz and tada here is our take on a Muffin Tin celebration.First we blew up some balloons, what's a party without ballons? Then we … [Read more...]
