Muffin Tin Monday - ABC/123

Pin It now!
Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth

My niece slept over at my house this weekend so we have a guest in our MTM post today! I usually do Dawson's muffin tin on Sunday so when I told my niece, Hailee, about it she got really excited to join in.

This week's theme is ABC's/123's. Because Dawson is so young (15 months today actually!) I always choose what he is going to be eating. So this was a first for me to have my niece (6 years old) tell me what she wanted in her muffin tin.

Oh! And I am super excited that I was able to make 2 tins this week because I bought 2 new tins a few days ago and have been so excited to use them both! (Please tell me that I am not the only one that gets really excited in the store when I find something that I can use for MTM!)

First up here is Dawson's tin:


Don't you just love the football tin?!

Across the top I wrote his name in oatmeal cinnamon letter of the day cookies. As you can see I was missing a "D" so I had to improvise and use a piece of cheese.

Top Row: PB&J sandwich cut in the shape of the numbers 1, 2 and 3.
Bottom Row: 1 strawberry newton, 2 heart marshmallows, 3 animal cookies


YUM!

Next up is Hailee's tin.


I couldn't pass up this cute heart shaped tin with Valentines Day coming up.

As you can see I was also missing an "E" for Hailee's name. But that's ok, we figured it out.

Top 3 hearts: PB&J sandwich in the shape of the numbers 6, 3 and 6 again.
Bottom 3 hearts: 6 frozen blueberries, 3 heart marshmallows and 6 pieces of graham cracker.

Hailee choose the number 6 because that is how old she is. She chose 3 and 6 again just because. :-) I let her pick her numbers and that is what she wanted. She also picked out her food. Yum-yum!
