We continued learning about the Days of Creation last week. On Monday I shared our Day 4 tin with the sun, moon and stars. Then we learned about Day 5 where God created the animals in the sky and seas. We concluded our week with the Day 6 muffin tin and had a fun tin full of land animals.
A bird (see description below)
Chicken in a Biscuit Crackers
Jello with a shark fin banana
Jello with a fish
Here is a closer look at the bird.
I started out planning to make a chick, but it wasn't going to work. You can have it be whatever kind of bird you want. It was made with a hard boiled egg, grape, carrot sliver beak, frosting eyes, and potato chip wings (held on with hummus)
The fish is swimming away from the shark...
I originally came up with the shark in the water idea last year around St. Patrick's Day when I was making colors of the rainbow muffin tins. That time the Jello was in a pie plate and there were a bunch of goldfish cracker fish and banana shark fins.
Here is what they had:
Monkey Nut-ritious Peanut Butter Sandwich playing in the bananas
Elephant peanut butter and apple butter sandwich
Dinosaur Chicken nuggets
Pig shaped ham wallowing in a Nutella mud hole
Cow shaped cheese standing in the pasture of sprouts
Hippo Shaped Watermelon in the Jello lake
I was going to make the pig in a pretzel stick pen but thought
1- it wouldn't look right and
2- the pig wouldn't have had a pen on the day of creation.
BUT... the girls knew I had the pretzel sticks and asked for them.
Please take note of the milk mustache as she made sure to tell me she had one.
