M is for Moose Muffins

M is for Moose Muffins, of course! /m//m//m/ moose, /m//m//m/ moose, Marching in the meadow, Can you heard the letter m sound… That’s the song we’ve been singing. Of all the A to Zoo Animals we’ve learned about, this one will be talked about for a long time.

M is for Moose Muffins

M is for Moose so we made Moose Muffins. They’re a great snack to go along perfectly with the story “If You Give a Moose a Muffin”. This adorable idea is from the Mother Goose Time recipe card included with M is for Moose day. It is suggested that the children can add the pretzels for antlers but I made them in advance for snack time.

After making chocolate muffins and allowing them to cool, I cut a small wedge in the top of the muffin. I squeezed a little cream cheese frosting into the indentation and set the pretzel rod on top. The eyes are white chocolate chips with small chocolate chips in the center.

A dab of cream cheese icing holds them on. Two small chocolate chips pressed into the muffin make the nose. A little cream cheese frosting on the back of pretzel twists holds them onto the pretzel rod. You can also use peanut butter, which probably would work even better, but I have to be careful with peanut butter allergies in my house. Cream cheese would also be a good alternative.

The art activity for letter M was moose headbands; which are perfect for to wear while marching around (in a meadow if you have one) while listening to the song! They double as awesome keepsakes since the antlers are the child’s hands. Precious.
