Muffin Tin Monday--Circus Theme

Here's what I made my son this week for Muffin Tin Monday: 

The theme this week was Circus! He ate this muffin tin meal for lunch on Sunday.  All I could think of were unhealthy foods... From top left to bottom right-- I made a lion-shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwich, circus peanut candies, elephant-shaped grilled cheese sandwich, circus animal cookies, yogurt with clown face, animal crackers. My son didn't eat much of this meal... apparently he wasn't very hungry today. He wouldn't touch the sandwiches, but he loved the yogurt and the circus animal cookies. I was actually surprised he didn't like the circus peanut candies. They are sooo sweet! He enjoyed dipping the cookies and animal crackers in the yogurt. :)

Since he wouldn't eat his sandwiches, I made some popcorn. But, he wouldn't eat that either... Oh well! My hubby and I enjoyed the sandwiches, and it was fun to set this up for him! :)

Hi, stopping by from SITS

What a neat idea! I love the set up of the food, the theme, and how it turned out. You are so creative and did an amazing job. Sorry he didn't really eat much of it. It looks good though.

Your tin is really cute! I almost did those orange pnut candies too:-). I would have loved to have that elephant grilled cheese!

The yogurt clown face is so cute! This was an adorable tin... even if he didn't eat the sandwiches. ;) Sometimes the meal is a hit... sometimes a miss. But it's fun no matter what!

How cute! Circus themed food is always fun. Even if he didn't eat much, I'm sure he loved seeing all the fun foods you made him. Very cool!

Great job! The clown face is adorable. I LOVE the frosted animal crackers, but they just don't sell them here. :( Oh well. I might just have to pick up a bag next time we're in the states!

What a fun tray and a fabulous blog!

When I was putting Maddie's together, I also realized that it was a tad, um... lacking in great nutrition, but that's the circus, right? Ha.

It looks good, even if he wasn't that hungry!

Super cute and yummy. I love those circus peanuts. I actually had some animal crackers this weekend too. I love those!! Nothing though, nothing beats the circus cookies. I'm weird I like to bit off all the sprinkles before I eat the actual cookie!!
