So it was time to step up again and make another themed lunch. This time, it was Dr. Seuss! It is his birthday week and my preschooler and pre-k babies are talking about him and his wonderful work at school. So we went all out: we read all of his books that we currently own, this morning we had our red and stripes on, and then there was this lunch. Very simple, but they got a kick out of it!
What we have here is some left over chicken finger as the “roast beast”,
A cream cheese and strawberry jelly sandwich in the shape of a [flower?],
Some gold fish,
A strawberry and marshmallow “hat” with a shuffula tree holding it together,
Some red and white M&Ms and as a bonus a few sticks of pockys and some extra green M&Ms.
And some notes. Cuz you gotta send a note.
So today a couple of great things happened. First, it was Valentine’s day and as much as I don’t personally celebrate it, I certainly make it very special for my children. We started with our Valentine’s goody bags and home made cards. And then I was off to make them a Valentine’s inspired school lunch. I have been all over Pinterest getting ideas and here’s something easy I came up with.
Oh, the second good thing that happened today was that we have received our PlanetBox bentos today. We can hardly wait to use them!
For my daughter I sent some salad with half a hard boiled egg, and a cream cheese and jelly sushi sandwich (which did not come out as neat as it should have because I didn’t flattened the bread enough. My mistake!) some strawberries and as treats, a couple conversation hearts, Hershey’s kisses and some strawberry pockys.
Apple juice to wash it down, and a home made photo style Valentines with a picture of the 2 of us.
Yup. It was a great day.
