Muffin Tin Monday- Big/Little Theme

Happy Monday! It's that time again, and this week over at Muffin Tin Monday, Michelle has challenged us with a "big/little" theme. At first this really threw me. Was I supposed to build an elephant out of bologna? I just wasn't sure. That's when it hit me... a regular muffin tin vs. a mini muffin tin! :-)


Wow. The more I look at that picture, the more it makes me feel like it's a camera trick. Lol!

Also, my daughter has been obsessed with the "Guess How Much I Love You" book lately (she thinks she's a bunny), so the big one is for Big Nutbrown Hare, and the little one is for Little Nutbrown Hare. Check it out!


In the Tin:
  • "The Moon" (made from a sideways slice of a hard boiled egg white) for the "I love you to the moon and back" page.
  • "Branches" (aka pretzel sticks) from when Big Nutbrown Hare hops so high his ears touch the branches above.
  • A heart (cut from a watermelon) for the Guess How Much I Love You thing.
  • Then a strawberry, salad, and carrots for "bunny food" :-)
My daughter had such a good time with this meal! She hopped all over the place while eating her carrots, and we read the book while we ate. The big muffin tin meal was for her (she is 3) and I gave the little one to my little guy (15 months). This only worked because my son is too young to have the she-got-more-than-me syndrome (and even he wanted some of his sister's strawberry after eating his tiny one. Lol!)

Great theme everyone! I had fun! Go by Michelle's blog to see what others did for their big/little muffin tins this week. Also, you guys know about the Nester's linky party today, right? You can check out my post for that here. 2 posts in one day? Not too much to ask for a superhero I suppose. I just couldn't resist linking up at both places ;-)

Cute! Good job. I never have good ideas for the muffin tin themes.

I didn't know our kids were similar ages (my son turns 3 this week, and 2nd son is 18 months).

This sounds like a good idea but my kids are OLD, 12 and 16. They might look at me sideways if I presented their meals in a muffin tin. But you know what, I'm going to do it anyway.
