Muffin Tin Monday

This week's Muffin Tin Monday goes along with the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle, and was part of our letter "c" theme week. If you've read the book, you know the caterpillar eats through a lot of stuff, especially sweets, near the end. I kind of tailored it to what we had on hand, trying to keep it healthful, and adding just a little bit of sweets.

On the top row, I have a quarter of a cupcake (treat from grandma), lean turkey lunch meat, cheese and about half of a clementine. On the bottom row are a few skittles, pears, strawberries and raspberries. I've had a hard time getting my little gal to eat lunch meat but I wrapped it around the cheese and she at least ate half of it this time.

This was really fun to prepare and Shelby just loves eating lunch when it's so special!

  1. Just so fun- I adore that caterpillar! (I can often relate to his immense appetite...)

  2. I love what you did with this! The caterpillar in there just makes a face smile. :)

  3. Looks like a fun tin! I liked your theme.

  4. Nice theme! I will have to remember the cheese wrapping trick.

  5. Very cute! My little guy will typically only eat lunch meat if it's rolled in a tube about the same size as a cheese stick (and generally only if there's also a cheese stick!).

  6. oh i like this idea. i wonder if my girls would finish their meal if i tried this out...
