Muffin Tin (Cup) Monday

 stumbled across this fun idea last night while browsing the internet (instead of getting to bed at a reasonable hour!!) and thought it sounded like fun. Muffin Tin Mom posts themes for these fun little lunches (this week was a free theme week) and lots of other moms share what they serve the kids. I don't have any small muffin tin pans so I just used cupcake liners instead. :) I think this is a neat idea because it makes lunch a little different and fun, it helps teach portion control, and can encourage them to try new foods depending on the theme and my creativity. :) Anyhow, not sure I will do it every week...but I think we'll give it a shot! I didn't have much time to plan so I just used what was easy today. We have hummus, baby carrots, goldfish, pb banana sandwiches and hame rolled up with some cream cheese.

I am hoping to get to another sketch this week to share with you.  I should've scrapped during naptime today but I started reorganizing the pantry and time got away from me. Oh well.  Maybe another day. :)


  1. you did a great job and the kids look like they enjoyed them!
