Bad King Muffins
12 Tribes Cheese Torta
Locusts and Honey
Noah’s Ark Cookies
Apple and Eve Juices
Now for the translation. Judah had 12 or so good kings. The mini muffins representing them were light colored (lemon flavored). And the 12 or so bad kings I represented with dark colored mini muffins (chocolate). The 12 Tribes Torta was made with 12 ingredients, which I served with sliced baguettes. Dates look a lot like locusts, eaten by Elijah in the OT. I used animal cookie cutters to cut out sugar cookie dough for Noah’s Ark cookies. I bought two varieties of Apple and Eve brand fruit juice in the grocery store.
School desks for the table and a white board backdrop. (Note the dry erase marker on the rail!) The Middle Eastern-looking cloth came from the Professor’s grandmother years ago. Baskets, brass trays, and wood bowls for serving. I hear it was all a hit, but I can’t say for sure because I was helping in the nursery.
Many thanks to Meredith at Like Merchant Ships for the inspiration!
