Muffin Tin Monday: All About Me!

Happy Monday!

Time for another installment of Muffin Tin Monday. Today we are celebrating Madison!! We started off the morning with a quick and easy project to get her into the it's all about me attitude. Hmm that makes it seem like she isn't always in that mindset!

Materials: Watercolor paper, water colors, contact paper, scissors
I drew a large M as in Madison onto a piece of contact paper, peeled it and stuck it onto a plain sheet of water color paper.

Madison was a little confused with my directions at first but it didn't take long for her to decorate the entire sheet of paper with her water colors!

Once the painting is dry, peel off the contact paper and the magical M appears! Now Madison is running around the house yelling "M is for Madison and MONKEYYYYYY". Where that came from I have no idea but at least she has it right!

Time for lunch! Today's Muffin Tin theme is All About Me! so of course lunch is all about me; goat cheese, pesto pasta, grilled chicken sandwiches Madison!

M is for Madison or in this case macaroni and sauce!

Madison loves creepy crawly bugs (ewwwwww) and here are some ants on a log!

Madison wants to be a princess when she grows up! For the princess in training a princess candy ring!

Pink, pink, pink! Strawberry yogurt with pink sprinkles of course!

Madison is 3! Three white chocolate covered pretzels for the big girl!

And Madison always has a smile!

Such clever ideas that reflect some of the things that Madison likes.

Madison's painting turned out so well. We are yet to try this craft project, but we will certainly be giving it a go.
