The CiRcUs is coming to town ~ MTM

A Muffin Tin Meal Under The Big Top

In honor of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus coming to our town
I made the kids this circus MTM.

• Cotton Candy with a clown sticker on a tooth-pick
• Popcorn with a big top tent sticker on a tooth-pick
• Drink
• Red-seedless grapes on sword picks
• A lion face sandwich with carrot match-sticks & black olives
• Dip in a plastic shot glass & black olives with a elephant sticker on a tooth-pick


  1. I LOVE the lion! What a fun tin!

  2. Cotton Candy - YUM! Any kiddo would go nuts over this lunch. I especially love how you used the carrots for the lion's mane! So clever. :)

  3. You make the cutest picks! Love the lion!

  4. WOW, love it - especially the lion!

  5. The lion is fantastic! I never thought of making my own picks using stickers. GREAT idea!
