Last Thursday the girls learned a little bit about planets and stars at the Summer Reading Program here in town. Because of this I decided to take some books about the solar system out of the library. Somehow, without even discussing it, hubby and I thought about making an Outer Space muffin tin. He brought home some items yesterday and I gave him a list last night for a few additional food items to help finish it up.
This is what we came up with:
The peanut butter and apple butter rocket ship is soaring through the cotton candy clouds with the help of it's engines that fire off red pepper strip flames.
The peas are asteroids.
Chicken and stars soup
Sunny D to represent the sun
The fruit represents the planets in our solar system (yes, I gave them 9 and included Pluto).
And the phases of the moon.
The moon phases are made out of cheese.
The older girls and I took some time to put the planets in order.
Daddy also surprised us with a special treat. Never saw these star shaped donuts before at out Tops market.
