Muffin Tin Madness

September 22, 2010 at 7:21 am 4 comments

We’ve recently jumped on the “muffin tin” wagon here in the 3 in under 3 house and my kids LOVE it! It allows them a variety of foods for lunchtime in bite sized pieces. Here are a couple we’ve had lately.

Pretzel crackers with cream cheese “shmear.” Peanut butter shmear with bananas, turkey rolls, and frosted animal cookies.

Here we have cheez-its, graham crackers with yogurt for dipping, mini pb&j’s, sliced peaches and tiny twizzlers for dessert.

I love thinking in miniature form. If I’m short a food item for one of the spaces, I just put a little juice glass in its place.

FYI, 6 holed muffin tins are a rarity. I have found them at the dollar store, but they rust easily. I think I may spray paint them and then use silicone muffin holders.

    What a fun idea! And I think they would turn out so cute if you spray painted them and added some matching silicone muffin holders! Please share a picture if you do this. 🙂 Thanks for the fun idea!

    You would love my kids’ new lunchboxes. They have 4 compartments to fill, and the lid has special seals that keep the contents from slopping between sections–even applesauce. I almost enjoy packing lunches these days–when the kitchen is stocked with all sorts of good food….

    I love this!!! I keep seeing more and more of this popping up but this is the first time I have seen it in muffin tins. What an awesome and creative take on this lunch movement. You do have to update the pictures if you decide to spray paint them!! I would love to see the finished product.
