Muffin Tin Monday - Numbers

It's Muffin Tin Monday, and the theme is numbers.  So what did I think about?  The Very Hungry Caterpillar, with his one apple, two plums, etc.
We decided to use a selection of the foods from the story, but to change up the numbers.
Pierce has been counting for a while now, so I figured I might as well challenge his thinking some.

He had 6 slices of apple, one slice of Swiss cheese (with 2 holes), 5 pickle slices, 7 slices of sausage (technically hot dog - but we adapted it to fit the story), one cupcake (not given until after lunch) and one big slice of plum (technically a pluot - but close enough).
It went over quite well.

I am doing a giveaway that includes a holiday MUFFIN TIN (and a holidays cookbook)!  Click HERE to enter.

The cupcake would go first at my house.

Yep same here, cupcakes come first :D Actually, I'm not even so sure about that, I have healthy-loving kids. Think they may have been deposited here by an extra terrestrial life-form ;)

Very cute tin! Love the tie in with the book! Yum! The cupcake would have been first to go at our house too. I give them everything up front with the rule that it doesn't matter what order you eat everything in, but everything must be eaten. :)
