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 we ended up with this…I rummagged through the garage and found a tall wooden pole and some PVC pipe, convinced my husband to cut them down to size and drill them together to make the structure. It’s now 11:45 and I need a way to make it stand up (this was a challenge) but once again my hubby found a solution and viola the tent structure is complete at 12:30! I pulled out some old sheets, fabric, and added some party decorations from our Black & White party this weekend and surprised little Miss A with a tent of her very own!We enjoyed our circus themed muffin tin in the tent. Here is what we had…Front Row: Popcorn, Ketchup, “Lion” Cheese & Crackers
Back Row: Cotton Candy, Mini Corndogs & Cupcake Clown
I did have a cute lion craft we were going to do today, but she hasn’t wanted to leave her tent so that will have to wait for another day.
Hope you enjoyed MTM. Don’t forget to check out Michelle and the other creative moms and their muffin tin creations!
