Muffin Tin Monday ABC/123

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth

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!

I love how you combined fractions and measuring with the meal! I'll have to let my daughter take part in the preparation next time instead of just making it and presenting it to her--thanks for sharing.

I love that the mini sandwiches have three ingredients.

That's awesome that you let your kiddo join in on the lunch making. I The real trick is to get them to help clean up. ;]

I agree with challenging the older kiddos with the Muffin Tins- and you are doing a rock solid job at it!

(My 2nd grader made the date "23 BC" with her toast from our Muffin Tin, which at least confirms that she IS listening during our World History lessons!)

I shooed my kids away while I put the meal together. I love that you had them measure, count, & cut. Great tin!
