Oh, how my children look forward to this. They are older than most I see on MTM, so I try to make theirs a little more complicated. I do have a preschooler so I keep hers simple. This week the theme was 123/ABC. We have been working on sounds so I decided to have
A - Apple slices
B - Banana slices
C - Cheese slices
1 - 1 cup of chocolate milk (they had to measure it out using 1/2 cup measuring cup)
2 - boiled eggs (they had to think of how to make their 1 egg into 2)
3 mini sandwiches with 3 ingredients (they had to make 1 sandwich with 3 ingredients, then cut it into 1/3)
This Muffin Tin Meal gave us the opportunity to talk about a lot of sounds and fractions and measuring.
It was a fun challenge for my kids too!
