Muffin Tin Monday

The always fabulous Katy, at SycamoreStirrings, gave a challenge this week for her Muffin Tin Monday. The theme was Party Time and the challenge was to come up with a fun and entertaining muffin tin lunch. We have been reading Teddy Bear Picnic often so I thought that would be a fun theme!

The girls had a neighbor friend over for the morning so we asked him to bring one of his teddy bears along too. They made invitations for their bears and I packed a picnic basket with a picnic blanket, juice boxes, and grapes. I used a basic sweet roll recipe to make these "bear heads".


And then gave the muffin tin full of decorations. The kids put cream cheese frosting over the top and then turned their rolls into bear masterpieces!



They had a really fun time doing the decorating and playing with the bears. Suprisingly, they ate very little of the rolls. Maybe they thought it was wrong to eat the sweet, innocent bears? I think they were just to interested in playing and running around the house. I have to say I thought the rolls were very delicious and ate more than my share of them!

I am looking forward to going over to Katy's blog today to see what all the amazingly creative ladies thought of, so I can steal their ideas! Katy also has a contest going on to win some of her fun headbands so head on over to her blog and leave her a comment!

I'll be participating tomorrow... I'm hosting a playdate, so we're making homemade pretzels and having various dips in the muffin tins... that's the plan at least. See ya tomorrow!
