Muffin Tin Monday: Big/Little

So, we did our Muffin Tin for Breakfast this morning! For the Big/Little theme, I busted out the Big Muffin Tins and the itsy bitsy muffin tins. Okay, they aren't tins. They are silicone cups. But so what, right? Anyway, since the grocery fairy hasn't stopped to see us lately, I didn't have a lot of things to choose from. So I had to get creative. I decided that it was oatmeal and fruit in the big tins and the stir ins for the oatmeal in the little cups. The kids helped put it together. This muffin tin meal required math (dividing the toppings into half in order to get equal amounts in each cup of oatmeal) and fine motor skills (pouring and stirring). Yay!

Donut's meal... it's still sitting on the table here at lunch time. She was too busy throwing a big fit to eat. Sigh.
He-Man's meal.
Hemp seeds, coconut flakes, raisins, cantaloupe, blueberries, cantaloupe, plain oatmeal, earth balance, and more oatmeal.

He-Man finished his off in record speed though. He says it was, "Good".

Draykie enjoyed attacking the bag from his Kroger manager's special Seventh Generation Diapers ($2.99/bag... we got them all).
And what did mommy eat for breakfast? This:

Ezekiel sprouted grain English muffin, sliced tomato, green peppers and cucumbers, organic mustard, and an organic breakfast Sunshine patty (they were on sale).
