Welcome to Muffin Tin Monday. This is the original weekly blog link up that celebrates Muffin Tin Meals. So, grab a muffin tin, lunch for your kids and play along. This week, I decided to do an Easter theme. For our family, Easter centers around Jesus. We still do egg hunts and enjoy bunnies, but for today’s muffin tin, we made it all about our faith.
Whole Green Apple, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Pretzels, Hard-boiled Egg, Watermelon, bread pieces
The Empty Tomb: carved green apple
“King of The Jews” Crown: Peanut Butter sandwich
Cross beams: pretzels (I tried to make crosses, but it was an epic food fail)
Salvation/New Life: Hard boiled egg
Blood of Christ: Watermelon (also could symbolize Christ as The Living Water)
The Last Supper: little bread pieces
The kids really loved this one. I wasn't sure if they would understand the siginificance. Frankly, I was a little unsure if this bordered on sacrilegious, but I decided to just go for it. And they got everyone.The one that prompted the most discussion about Jesus was the egg. We talked about how we are "made new" when we put our trust in God. I even had a different item in the last cup and they suggested the bread for communion during the last supper! And if it prompted that kind of discussion about our faith, it is worth it.
Now it's your turn. I would love to see what you have put together for Muffin Tin Monday this week!
