Muffin Tin Monday: Creation Days 5 and 6

Muffin Tin Monday at

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.

Day 5

A bird (see description below)
Chicken in a Biscuit Crackers
Jello with a shark fin banana
Jello with a fish
Goldfish Crackers

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.

Day 6:

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.


  1. That is the cutest idea I've seen in a long time! I may have to do something like this for my Sunday School kids, but think of something themed with our lesson.

  2. This is great! I need to get myself some animal shape cookie cutters so I can make some of these for my daughter.

  3. How fun! I have seen the octodog before and haven't got around to creating it yet. I am keeping note for fun school lunch ideas :)

  4. This is a REALLY Super Cool Idea! I love all the different and original things oyu created with the food. Makes it so much fun for the kids... I love your ideas, I might steal them! ;)
    S.O.S. Mom

  6. You are so creative! Your kids are lucky that you invest time to make things fun like this. :)

  7. These are seriously cute ideas. I doubt Jake would appreciate them, though to his defense he's 15, lol.

  8. SUPER cute idea!! I love the lesson and it looks as though they had fun :) Great post!

  9. What a great idea--thanks for sharing!
