Today we made these super-duper easy Chocolate Crown of Thorns. I saw them on a post from Catholic Icing and knew they would be a messy fun project for UNO and DOS. Evann from Homeschool Goodies also said to add eggs to it to transform it to a bird's nest!
All you need is Baking Chocolate and Pretzels.
I just followed the directions for melting the chocolate.
I lined a baking sheet with wax paper and drew a circle on the back side.
I was thinking the circle would be easy for the kids to "shape" the Crown.
UNO stirring the pretzels and chocolate...
DOS added her pretzels...one at a time...YAWN!!!
TRES looking on with a red star sticker stuck to her upper lip...too cute!
I made this one earlier in the day.

NOTE: Less is more.
The one Evann made was thinned out a lot better than this one but hey...
It was my first one.
UNO and DOS ended up eating their bowl of chocolate covered pretzels, while watching an Easter Video...which was ok with me.
I LOVED this idea and look forward to making this one of our Holy Week Traditions.
This weeks theme for Muffin Tin Monday is Green/St. Patrick's Day! I had so many green great ideas storming through my head but after a long, lazy weekend...I never made it to the store! Here is my tin with things I already had...It turned out great!!

While flipping through some of my favorite blogs, I came across moms at On a Whimm and Adventures of a Flake doing a Tea Time Thursday! I didn't see any other post other than from 2009 but am hoping they start this up again!! (hint-hint)
So here are pictures from our first TEA TIME THURSDAY!!!!
We had a great time at our Tea Party hosted by Grammie!!
Someone forgot to tell DOS it was Tea Time...not nap time!

A beautiful "flower" at each setting...

I love Muffin Tin Mondays!! Today, I actually had to have breakfast before I put this together, if not...I would have eaten all the snacks!!
I decided to do a SWEET, SALTY, SOUR, SPICY Yellow Snack Tin!! I thought it would be cruel...uh I mean fun to play with the kids' taste buds! It worked out really well ...the tins were returned empty!!
