All About Snowmen on Muffin Tin Monday

Our last Muffin Tin Monday before Christmas!  This time I got out our snowmen tin.
Pierce had an assortment of baby carrots, raisins, and vanilla chips for making snowmen.  He had a chocolate mousse parfait (which he had to save for last), potato salad (you know what they say about yellow snow...maybe that's why Pierce wouldn't eat it?), ketchup for dipping, green beans, and dinosaur chicken nuggets.  The little snowman pick in the mousse came as a set of cupcake toppers from Dollar Tree.

Your muffin tray is such a great idea. I am sure that gets the kids excited and they eat it all. Very clever.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I find tranquility when I am scrapping. It is therapy for me.
I am a stay at home wife now since the kids are away at college. So with spare time after cleaning and the house chores I craft.
It is not hard, with scrapbooking anything goes. There is no wrong and no right. Just give it a try one day. You'll love it.

I hated potato salad as a kid so I understand why Pierce wouldn't eat it. Have a great day Lisa!

If I am a child I would really have the appetite with your muffin tray idea my friend... I guess children love colorful foods not colorful themes...

I love all your muffin tin Monday posts. You have some of the cutest tins. I am waiting to see what you come up with for New Years post

The yellow snow comment made me laugh! Ugh-- I may never see potato salad the same again!

Amish Stories said...

Yellow snow, yes i remember that and remember falling in it as i was running one time. Looks fairly healthily as well so your pulling off giving them pretty good food in the process. Richard

I love seeing your tin muffin tray, this is great idea presenting some yummy food for our kids this season..:) thank for this muffin tray and your Monday post!:)

Deaglan is obsessed with eating snow and he's not picky. I'm constantly trying to remind him that dogs and cats go to the bathroom outside.

I like this idea so much. I'm going to start hunting for some creative trays...maybe my picky eater will become less picky.

Mary said...

Ha the yellow snow thing made me smile. :)

Very cute! I hope you have a fabulous Christmas!

My girls used to love eating off of trays... they didn't like their food to touch each other. Thanks for stopping by.

Sonya @ Under the Desert Sky said...

I'm sure your boys are so excited for Christmas!

Lisa
It makes me wish I was a kid again!
I recommended your blog to a lady who was complaining about having a hard time coming up with creative kid meals-I hope she found you!
Happy Holidays!

I love that muffin tin! We gave Amy a Christmas tree muffin tin for her birthday because she loves to bake so much. I think I should show her this post though, and then have her serve me some lunch in it:)

Cute idea! My kids love to snack!

I just read your profile. I used to teach psychology at a local community college two days a week, too. When we moved to California, I started teaching online with U. of Phoenix, but I miss teaching in the classroom.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. :)

I've seen this idea on Pinterest to fill the muffin tins full of different sensory objects. I hadn't seen it for food. I love this idea! :)
