Muffin Tin Monday - Circus Theme!


Let's hear it for the BIG TOP! Instead of goign through all the weekly mumbo jumbo about what muffin tin monday is, for the "newbies" or lurkers, I'll just refer to you other Muffin Tin Mondays and the Muffin Tin Monday FAQ.

This week's MTM theme is CIRCUS! I was a bit worn out from the baby shower I threw this weekend, and could...not...think...for the life of me, what I was going to do. I didn't have any ideas for circus-themed foods.

Not one. Nada. Zilch. Zero. Been there?

So I played up the "big top" aspect and here is what we did for Muffin Tin Monday. We chose to have a simple snack literally "Under The Big Top".


"What's Under the Big Top for my little animals?"




"Why, it's a "three ring circus of snacks"!


Yipee!



(I know you all will love me in spite of my sucky photos. ugh. They are so dark!)

What did you do for Muffin Tin Monday? Did you make it a Circus Theme? Share it with us by adding the URL to your blog post or flickr photo!

  2. Awesome! That is super creative and so much fun! Love it! We'll see if I can put on my thinking cap for this one. I've been trying to come up with someone and so far just a whole lotta nothing...well, besides circus-style animal crackers. Hopefully I'll be back later to link up!

  19. I just thought of a theme for Sept 21... Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, since the movie is coming out that week. Just an idea.

  20. My 1st time participating. Hope I linked up right! I did a back to school theme since this was our first week of school. The boys loved it! Great ideas here!

  21. LOVE LOVE LOVE the idea! a friend pointed me to your blog and i can't wait to try it out on my 2 yr old!

    another suggestion for finding muffin tins would be freecycle. i just got 2 from there! not sure if that was in your archive or not i know i saw thrift stores and tag sales!
