Muffin Tin Monday - Nursery Rhymes

Welcome to Muffin Tin Monday!

Today's scheduled theme is Nursery Rhymes. :)

I totally phoned it in this week and whipped out this super simple muffin tin in mere minutes.
Muffin Tin Monday - Nursery Rhymes

Top row:
- Little Miss Muffet's spider, creeping up on her tuffet zucchini muffin
- Jack & Jill's pail full of dry roasted peanuts
- Mary's little lamb, waving from the top of a grape heap

Bottom row:
- Baa Baa Black Sheep (olives)
- Old Mother Hubbard's bare cupboard. Poor puppy. :(
- Twinkling Little Star, up above the world so high 

Those are dye-free organic "M&M" type candies in the star cup, the globe is a little piece of chocolate wrapped in earth-print foil.  Both these treats were found at Whole Foods in the bulk bins.

My intent for this muffin tin was to have Paige guess what nursery rhyme each space represented. This was a huge flop as it turns out Paige doesn't know the nursery rhymes!!! What what what?!! I was flabbergasted. After talking a while about them, she says they sound "kind of familiar", but definitely not second nature, not by a long shot. Yikes!  I guess we have a summer project on our hands: Nursery Rhyme Boot Camp. 

Supplies used to make this muffin tin meal:

Your Old Mother Hubbard's bare cupboard made me LOL! It's such a great idea...and really brings home the point, does it not??! :)

Thank you for hosting MTM! Love your compilation and I agree I loved your idea of Mother Hubbard's bare cupboard :)

When I recited Old Mother Hubbard to Paige her eyes got very big and she said, "well that's really mean". Made me LOL too! ;)

I have got to remember to check out the themes before making my muffin tin.
I love your nursery rhyme tin. Great idea to leave one empty for the bare cupboard. I also thought the Baa Baa Black sheep was soo cute.
Thanks for the linky

I feel so much better now that I know someone else's kids don't know nursery rhymes! Haha! I've always chosen other books and rhymes to read my kids since I don't like a lot of the nursery rhymes. Babies plummeting, bridges falling, crowns getting broken - it all seems a bit scary to me! :)
Very creative bare cupboard! Love it!

Ha! I think my kids would have a hard time with the nursery rhymes too.
