Muffin Tin Monday - Dr. Seuss

I know that Dr. Seuss was a MTM theme several weeks ago, but I didn't do it that week, and our theme for this week is Dr. Seuss in honor of his "birthday" this week.
 Here is our MTM for this week.  Starting in the upper left and going clockwise:  Green Eggs and Ham, avocado because D is not a fan of eggs and we don't eat ham; One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, an open faced strawberry jelly sandwich using a fish cookie cutter; Cat in the Hat, hat made out of bananas and strawberries; The Tooth Book, an apple mouth (I used cut apple instead of marshmallows); Ten Apples Up on Top, 10 pieces of cut up apple; The Foot Book, a muenster cheese foot using a foot cookie cutter.

D ate Cat's hat quite quickly, and then used her hands on the jelly on the fish.  When she realized her hands were sticky, that was the end of lunch.  I was quite surprised as she loves avocado and apples, and is normally a fan of peanut butter.  Granted she was rather tired today as we had to get up early to get Jolly Green Daddy to the airport.

On the other hand she did say "sticky" when she was not happy about her hands.  Oh well, better luck next week.

To see what other tots had for lunch today go to Muffin Tin Mom.  Next week's theme is Yellow.


  1. What a great tin! The mouth is so cute.

  2. love it! the apple mouth is hilarious!

  3. I love what you did with the apple and the banana. It makes it all the more fun! I see on your site that you did stuff for Purim. So did I. It was the first time I have even did a kind of celebration, but we had lots of fun. Unfortunately, we did not quite make it to the cookies. It will be fun to see what you do for Passover!

  4. Talk about creative! You definitely went above and beyond with this tin!

  5. I thought about doing a Dr. Seuss theme but didn't have the brain power to pull that one off this week. Yours is adorable. Great ideas.

  6. I love, love, love your hat idea. The rest is great too! Just wanted to say thanks for stopping by my blog. Your daughter is about the age of my youngest (at least until the baby is born). She's a cutie.

  7. Hi Erica, followed you from JewishHomeSchoolers! :-) What a great idea using the muffin tin. When mine were itty bits, we did something similar using Early Education at Home. Fun! She's a cutie.

  8. I love it! The tin is almost as cute as D!


Please leave me a message. I love "talking" with other adults.
