Welcome to Muffin Tin Monday!
My boys went camping this weekend with the church and being a girly weekend and all, I felt the need to shop. Only it's really hard to shop when you don't have much money to shop with. After about 2 hours of browsing in local boutiques we ended up at Walmart. I spent about half an hour in the printer section (ours died). I picked one out, put it in my cart, put it back on the shelf and bought this:
So to celebrate my fun new purchase I had to put it to use and make a dinosaur Muffin Tin Lunch for L.
- Diplodocus PB&J
- T-Rex and Stegosaurus Shaped Chicken Nuggets
- Diplocus PB&J
- Stegosaurus Chicken Nuggets
- Volcanic Lava (ketchup)
- Dino Footprint (no bake cookie)
- Pteranodon Sugar Snap Peas (held together w/toothpick)
L ate everything except one sandwich and the casing of the sugar snap peas . My delicate princess was squeezing out the peas and as each one fell she said "ewww dactyl pooping! ewww dactyl pooping!" She thought she was hilarious but at least she ate the "poop" peas.
My oldest is a bit obsessed with dinosaurs and even at 9 1/2 he still plans on being a paleontologist when he grows up. That being said, we have a lot of dinosaur books on our shelves! But the book, Katie and the Dinosaurs is an all-time favorite of all three of my children. It is probably one of the most read books in our house.
Katie goes to the Natural History Museum with her grandma who has little interest in the old dino bones. While Katie's grandma decides to sit down and take a rest, Katie goes off to explore. It is then that she finds a door that leads to a secret world of live dinosaurs. She finds that the herbivores, like the Hadrosaur, are fun and friendly but they are all in trouble when the carnivorous T-Rex shows up.
This is one of those rare books that can please both boys and girls along with keeping children aged 3 -9 interested.
