Muffin Tin Monday - Shapes

I found a lovely online blog link up (every Monday) where mothers from around the world serve meals to their kids in muffin tins.  I think its a great idea, it breaks the usual lunch routine and adds a lot of room for creativity.

Almost every week there is a theme that you could follow and this week it's SHAPES.

So in honour of this wonderful tradition, here is our Muffin Tin.


From top left to right: cucumber hearts; yoghurt with a cheese circle, heart and square; cucumber squares; chicken trangles; green peas (little green balls and little orange carrot cubes); chicken triangles.


Emma ate almost everything! She loves these green peas.


Big thanks to my lovely neighbour Daphne for lending us her six hole muffin tin.  You could use any muffin tin, but I feel a twelve hole would be too overwhelming for a toddler.  I do need to go shopping for one of my own, I love the bright coloured, funny shaped ones.  I'll let you know if I find any.

  1. Love it! I really should stock up on cucumbers (ie: buy one.) I need to incorporate more veggies in my MTMs (and regular snacks)and they look easy to work with!
    My tins are all kind of scuzzy, so I haven't been brave enough to do 'moist' foods like yogurt, but I just got some silicone cups.
    I love doing this so much, but I kinda went overboard on muffin pans, cups and cookie cutters! Looking forward to seeing more of yours!

  2. Great Muffin Tin! Is this your first? It's fantastic! I don't know where you are in the world, but I found some 6 hole muffin tins at a Dollar Tree for... $1. :)

  3. Thanks!

    @Ludicrous Mama silicone cups are a great idea!
    @Java, yes this is my first, looking forward to making many more :) I'm in Cyprus so I'll have to get them from here, and I'm sure much more expensive!
