Muffin Tin Monday: April Showers Bring May Flowers

As promised here is the second muffin tin post for this week.  Today we had a "April Showers Bring May Flowers" Lunch.  First the muffin tin:
Bread and butter flower
Kiwi (we are starting /k/ this week)
Peanut butter tulip
Cheese tulip
Another peanut butter tulip
Carrots (for the /k/ sound)

Now the dessert tray:


Cool whip clouds, blue Jello raindrops, mandarin orange flowers with jelly bean centers and pull and peel licorice stems, green Jello grass with green tinted coconut.

I set the dessert tray between them and they did a very good job not touching it til it was time to eat it.

Tabitha put her pb tulips together to make a sandwich.


Then I had the girls put some marshmallows in the cool whip to give the clouds a more puffy appearance.




Then they ate the dessert.



I got the idea for this tray last night.  Realizing that it would be mostly junk food again I planned the muffin tin and made the tray a dessert tray.  I got the idea for the flowers over at Michelle's Muffin Tin Mom blog.  She had posted about her Easy Green Apple Flower.  I know, not quite the same thing, but I wanted to share her great apple flowers.
