Muffin Tin Monday: Cute Creative Kids Food

Hi Muffin Tin’ers! Welcome to another super sweet edition of Muffin Tin Monday. In America we are celebrating Presidents' Day which means we honor the lives and contributions of past U.S. Presidents, traditionally Washington and Lincoln. However, I did appreciate this article in the Washington Post about Presidents' Day and the fun included trivia quiz.
Presidents' Day also means a long 4 day weekend with the kiddos. How about you? 
I’ve been tinkering with my iPhone, Instagram and snappping photos of 
the muffin tin meals I put together for the kids. What do you think?

I began using the planning page that Emily of Second Story Window shared with us last week. And I have to say I love it. And I hope you do too. Click on the photo to download your free copy of the planning page directly from Second Story Window.

Last week, we also made a fun Folded paper Cupcake Liner Flower craft. Check it out!
Now it's your turn! What did you make for MTM?

    i really enjoy Muffin Tin Monday! i babysit my 3 yr old grandson twice a week - i don't use a muffin tin but i have started giving him more diverse lunches. i used to give him just a sammie and a salad (he loves salad!) now i give him a couple of different fruits mixed in with the yogurt. i put some homemade granola on top and some sprinkles always add fun! thank you for your blog.

  3. I have been seeing this whole muffin tin meal thing around the homeschooling blog community since I started blogging this summer, but have been resisting because my 2 year old is such a picky eater that I thought it would be a waste of time and effort. After finally getting curious enough that I peeked at your FAQs, I realize that the point of muffin tin meals is to appeal to the picky eater in all our children and make mealtime appealing. I am excited to try this out now! Thanks for the inspiration :)
