Muffin Tin Monday: Party!!

muffin tin monday

This week’s theme for our muffin tin meal is party.  Well, we decided to have our theme around the book “If You Give A Pig A Party.”  I found a neat site that had an activity pack to download with coloring pages and ideas for a book themed party.

IMG_1972  First we did our coloring pages, one of which was decorating a cake.  Can you say glitter? lol.

IMG_1975 Then we made homemade ice cream!  Cute recipe I’ve seen before but never tried, where you put milk, sugar and vanilla in a small baggie and ice and salt in a big baggie.  Then put the sealed small baggie in the big baggie, seal, and shake until “frozen.”  Ds and I tossed the bag back and forth for our freezing process lol.  He really got into this theme and wanted to decorate the table.  He searched around and found a plastic tablecloth, some stickers, some ribbon and streamers, and his play doh ice cream maker.

IMG_1981 Cute, huh?  In the tin we have a mini donut with a candle (our version of a cake) some grapes (balloons) and the homemade ice cream (with sprinkles of course.)  Bottom row is pb&j (like in the book) and pig in a blanket.

IMG_1984 He loved it and we had a fun morning together.  I definitely like basing the theme on a book!  Be sure and check out all the creative moms who participate in Muffin Tin Monday with Michelle at HerCupOverfloweth.
