Muffin Tin Monday

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth
Muffin Tim Mom is doing a spring mini-series for MTM themes for the next couple of weeks. This week's theme is birds and nests. I had a hard time thinking of anything to do for this- except I remembered there was a recipe for Choco-Nests in the back of one of our Curious George books (strange, right?) that would work well for this theme. But since I don't do MTM until Tuesday, I get to peruse all the other posts and get ideas from them! The boys had a lot of fun getting sticky making the nests and they also had a lot of fun eating the lunch. Scotty discovered that he loves hard boiled egg whites, but not the yolks. Miles has an aversion to hard boiled eggs so we very rarely have them. And the nests were really good- thanks Curious George!

PB&J duck/bird/weird thing shaped sandwich, our nests with a hatching chick in one and marshmallow and M&M eggs in the other, broccoli trees, Pop Rock bird seed and pudding bird poop.

I got this cute idea from here. I used tiny sprinkles for the eyes and cheese for the beak.

Grant was excited about the tree and was even saying tree!

Scotty decided to put bird poop on the tree!

Then he tasted the pudding and said "Eew, this poop is disgusting!"

To see more fun MTM posts, stop by Muffin Tin Mom.
