So, we decided to give it a try. We almost missed it entirely as the bookworm took a 3 hour nap right through lunch. But when we woke up, I quickly threw together this tin. His favorite books lately are all about trucks, buses, and cars, so that's what we did:
Top row (left to right): marshmallows, chopped up bacon, and freeze-dried blueberries -- all as "gravel" for his dump truck.
Bottom row (left to right): gluten-free chicken nuggets, potato chips, and quaker kettle-corn flavored mini rice cakes -- all as "wheels."
If you're visiting for the first time, take a look here at our many transportation-related book reviews that inspired this children's literature related muffin tin.
He really enjoyed it, and even as I type this, he keeps pointing to the screen and running to the other room yelling "muhmuh!" to show he knows what a muffin tin is.
