The Muffin is a great reader for her age, and recently she has fallen madly in love with the Rainbow Magic fairy books. These are short novel-style books (or "chapter books", as she calls them).
This week she wanted a Rainbow Magic Fairies theme tin, but she specified that it must only contain references to the fairies she has so far read. So here goes:
Top Row: The Pot At The End Of The Rainbow (here represented by a black silicon muffin liner, containing sausages); Ruby The Red Fairy (strawberries, one of which is cut into a flower shape, even though you can't really see it in the photo. In the books, each fairy's magic fairy dust turns into something as it falls to the ground. Ruby's turns into flowers).
Middle Row: Amber The Orange Fairy (carrot circles - Amber's dust turns into orange bubbles); Bertram The Frog (bread and butter frog with mini M&M eyes. There is carrot and apple salad underneath him, too).
Bottom Row: Saffron The Yellow Fairy (potato casserole with a little cheese butterfly on top - again, you can't really see this very well as it had begun to melt! Saffron's dust turns into butterflies); Fern The Green Fairy (spinach leaves. Fern's dust turns into little leaves).
Plus: Two sets of rainbow chocolate chips.
The Muffin helped a lot with this tin, as she was very excited about it. She decided where everything went (ie in strict order of when we discover each thing in the series), and she loaded most of the food into the cups.
