Muffin Tin Monday - Tiny Dancer!

My little girl loves to dance. She really loves to dance. She is quite often to be seen pirouetting and arabesque-ing around the lounge room (and yes, thanks to Angelina Ballerina she does use those words, and knows what they mean).

Each week we go to Kindy Dance Time, which has been fantastic for her - it's not too structured, but just structured enough for her age group (ie they do learn a few basic steps, and they get used to following instruction, but they still get to do a fair amount of running about improvisation, and just having fun). Anyway, this Saturday was no exception, and then on Sunday we also went to the Cabaret performance of the dance school my cousin's daughters go to (well done girls, you did an awesome job!)

Because it's been a very dance-y sort of weekend, we decided to have a dancing theme for our Muffin Tin snack today:

Top Row: Apple stars; Ballerina Bear cookie; Starry banana circles.

Bottom Row: Olives on music picks; Yoghurt with frozen raspberries mixed through (it was quite pink in real life, but this doesn't really show up in the photo); Ballet Shoe rice cake with ham details.

The After Shot:

My little ballerina was very pleased with this tin. She liked everything, although the highlight, as usual, was the sugar component - in this case, the cookie. But she was also extremely keen on the yoghurt, and enjoyed stabbing the little fruit stars with the picks.

To see what other mummies did this week, go to The Muffin Tin Mom's blog. Happy snacking!

This tin is absolutely adorable. Your bear and ballet shoes are both just precious! I have wonderful memories of my little ballerina when she used to take lessons. Such fun!

Thanks ladies - and yes Iowa Farmer's Wife, I did make the cookie. I'll be writing a post about these cookies in the next couple of days...

I love it! My girls love to dance as well - I think I might make them a similar one soon.

Love the shoes! Your hand-cut stuff is just amazing! How did you get the stars in the bananas? Just push a cutter partway through? Did you have to wiggle it to get the design to show? I hate touching food, especially bananas, so not something I like to trial-and-error with myself! :)

So adorable! This is such a pretty muffin tin meal. My older daughter would go nuts over one like this :)
