Little Miss made her entire lunch by herself this evening. Giving this Mama the night off from lunch making her lunch, yet still getting to have fun watching and seeing her be so proud of her own creations. Priceless!
I let her look over the MOMables menu plan for this week to get some ideas and inspiration. When she saw the PB&J Sandwich, her eyes lit up because that meant she could make herself her favorite: SunButter & Jelly! (Child would eat it every meal if I'd let her, LOL)
She opted for Udi's bread in lieu of a bagel because she wanted to have at her choice of our cookie cutters to have some fun with her sandwich.
She opted for a flower shape. After cutting her bread, she carefully spread on her SunButter & Jelly... then went to town decorating and filling the rest of her EasyLunchBoxes container!
Taking a cue from her MOMables menu, she had me help slice some apples then she made them into bite size squares using our FunBites CubeIt cutter.
She then chose some VeggieChips and dip for the other small compartment.
PS: Making flower carrot coins is hard work!
But I think she was determined to use as many tools and cutters as possible, lol...
Using our Betty Crocker Easy Writer food safe pens, she carefully decorated her flower carrots and placed them in her EasyLunchBox.
She was so proud of her finished product, she wanted to make her school snack too when she was done with lunch.
For snack in her LunchBots Duo, she cut out pieces of watermelon using our mini star, heart, bear, butterfly, and tulip cutter.
On the other side is a slice of ham I helped her roll up and a silicon cup with some KinniKritters animal cookies (gluten, nut, dairy/casein, and egg free).
