Muffin Tin Monday - the Halloween Loot

Today is Muffin Tin Monday, and I confess that I didn't follow the theme.  Maybe next week!
Instead, I used a mini muffin tin to display Pierce's Halloween candy.
A fun way for him to pick his candy.  He gets to pick one treat after meals.  He tends to go after the lollipops.
I was dismayed that he didn't get a single Reese cup.  Not one!  What is the world coming to?  Now I'm going to have to go buy some on Halloween clearance.

Here are Reid and Cort in their costumes: 

And here is Pierce in his.
Howdy, Partner!

I love that idea of making a candy selection board, almost like a candy store. A great way to spread out the sugar rush over several days. Does the muffin tin display of candy stay out until the candy runs out?

I love the costumes. I decided JDaniel needs candy identification training for next year. He didn't pick any Snickers or peanut butter cups.

I think I'll make myself a muffin tin just like this one! When I saw the picture, I did giggle a bit. Too cute! Your little ones' costumes were adorable!

Andrea said...

Great idea! And OMG! We only got ONE Reeses! So I totally get you. And I think I made sure I grabbed one out of a bowl, so we'd have one. ;) Tee hee. I guess my lil one recognizes M&Ms easier!

What a great way to have him pick his candy. It sure beats the way my girls have been doing it... dumping the whole bag out each time they get to pick something. ha!
