Ni Hao Kai Lan

Posted on: August 26, 2011

Miss G chose to be Kai Lan last year for Halloween, and she still loves to watch her.  Ni Hao Kai Lan is a little Chinese cartoon on Nick Jr.  She teaches little kids words in Mandarin Chinese.   I admit that I woke up a little earlier today to work on this one to surprise her. I made an oval for Kai Lan’s face and cut a circle in half for her ears.  Her hair is all hand cut raspberry fruit leather as are the eyelashes.  The eyes, eyebrows, nose & mouth are cut with a small oval cutter .  The whites of her eyes (yellows) are gruyere cheese.  I cut dried apricot flowers for her hair bows and secured them with 1/2 toothpicks underneath.  I did the same with the eyes and split one of them doing it :(  The Ni Hao (“hi” in Mandarin Chinese) was also cut with my alphabet cutters using dried apricots.  My husband got the outer parts of the apricots in his lunch!

To go along with the sandwich, I included flower shaped strawberries, mini carrots, cashews and a Clif Kid organic fruit twist for a treat.  Not shown are an applesauce pouch, Lifeway Kefir pouch and an ice water.   Hope everyone has a great weekend!
