Muffin Tin Monday / All About Shapes

It's a party...a shape party!!

Muffin Tin Monday is a first for me, but I know it won't be my last. My little guy was so excited when he saw his muffin tin full of fun, that he declared it a "Party Day"!! Our shapes were served in a rectangular muffin tin. On the menu(going across from the upper left): square cereal, round vanilla wafers, rectangular crackers, round crackers, star sprinkles, round bananas, cylinder sausages (I know these are a little gross, but my guy loves them), peanut butter for glue, triangle pineapple, diamond cheese, pyramid chocolate chips (okay I know it's a bit of a stretch), round cereal.

Did we have fun? Boy did we ever!!! We didn't just eat our shapes, we played with them, we got down right artistic with it. This is just a sample of some of what we made!!

Other activities on the menu for today...Shape scavenger hunt, building with shapes (we will find shapes around the house, i.e. cracker boxes, tape spools..., and build with them), the telling of the story Triangles Are Not Bad (with props), we will be playing with pattern blocks, and making pictures inspired by Ed Emberley's Picture Pie

Be sure to check out more of the fun at Sycamore Stirrings.

Have A delightful day!!

Such a great idea to "design" with the shaped food! Looks like loads of fun. I was going to join in on that MTM, but completely forgot when the day arrived, oops. Maybe next time :)

Oh, this is just too darling! I love the way to play with all the shapes. Very clever - I am sure it was devoured!
