Thank you all for such wonderful comments yesterday about the one year celebration of my little blog 🙂 Made my day to read so many kind comments from you all. Thank you!
It’s Tuesday yet again which means it’s time for Toddler Tuesday!
As the Love Nugget gets older, his need to be constantly entertains gets more noticeable. So I am constantly trying to come up with fun new things that will keep him entertained for longer than a few minutes. He LOVES reading and eating so activities that revolve around the two are always a hit!
One of The Love Nugget’s favorite books, is a collection of Laura Numeroff stories. If your not familiar with her, she is a wonderful children’s author. Some of her books include, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, If You Give A Pig A Pancake and today’s feature story, If You Give a Moose a Muffin.
I had a zucchini that needed to be used soon so I decided to read If You Give a Moose a Muffin and make some zucchini muffins to go with it.
First we sat down and read the story a few times.
The first time I read through and stopped to talk about the pictures, what was happening and to point out the moose and muffins quite often. The second time I read through it without stopping. While I got our supplies ready for the muffins, The Love Nugget “read” it one more time 🙂
Then I told him we were going to make muffins just like in the story! Boy was he excited!
He helped me measure, pour and stir the ingredients.
Since we had made cupcakes and frosting last week and he got to taste the frosting, he kept saying, “Taste, taste…” Not this time buddy 🙂
When they were finished baking and had cooled down a bit, we of course had to sample them with some homemade blackberry jam just like in the story.
They were a hit!
He tends to shove things that he loves into his mouth much like his father….
“What? Slow down? Take smaller bites?”
Yeah right mom!
Definitely a great recipe not only for your little ones but for your whole family!
