Have I ever mentioned that I love my muffin tins!!? I think I’ve probably made muffins in them twice but we use them at least once a week.
They’re great for separating out ingredients or art supplies for creative activities. We also use them for sorting objects by colour or type. When Eli was younger he like to move objects from one section to another.
And we love muffin tin meals.
Eli has always eaten really well so it’s easy to be lazy with his meals because I don’t need to make them interesting to encourage him to eat. He does love these though and it really is no different than what I would have given him anyway.
Today we didn’t have a big selection of food in the house. He had cheese (cubed and grated) toast, apple slices and a box of raisons. The advantage of serving it like this is so he can be in control of what order he eats his food in (3 year olds love control) and it looks like fun!
You can be much more creative with it if you’re more into planning in advance than me! More ideas
