A Plump & Perky Turkey for our Muffin Tins!

I have been thinking about our Thanksgiving/Turkey themed muffin tins for a while and I was SO excited when I found these fun "tins" to put them in last week!

They are actually ceramic, but my kids are older so I thought they would be fine. Plus they were only $2.50! So I couldn't say NO;)

We just read the book a "A Plump & Perky Turkey" for our Thanksgiving unit, and it inspired me!


This book is way cute, so we borrowed it's title for our theme this week.


So here is my version of "Pete" (that is the name of the turkey in the book), he is beside some applesauce garnished with a cut apple "leave"


Then I made some cute chocolate acorns (thanks Pintrest!) and filled another cup with
"Cornucopia Trail Mix" (this was simply Bugles & Runts)







I also included a Juice Box and dried cranberries & cherries, but as Gideyon put it "there is nothing fun about the fruit, Mom!" :/

My first Thanksgiving Muffin Tins, pretty fun if I do say so myself!;

That is adorable! Did you buy some "tins" for my guys? Where did you find them for such a good deal?

I heart everything including the "tin". It's so my style.

Adorable. I love the acorns, although my little Autumn is allergic to peanuts so I'd have to find something besides Nutter Butters to use! So cute - glad your kids loved it :)

This is the second time in the last few days that I have seen that book around the blog-o-sphere. I love the look of it. And the muffin tin is great! Love those little acorns and your turkey turned out so cute. And that tin is just perfect. Great find!!

What a great muffin tin and meal! I did those acorns for a snack at my daughter's school and the kids love them. Your Cornucopia trail mix is just too clever! This would be perfect for the Thankgiving Bento Link-Up at Diana Rambles.
