Mom’s had her hands in the Play Doh collection again.  I found a mini Cinderella crown cutter in the Play Doh stash so I’ve scoured it off and I’m using it for lunches now.  Miss G has a princess sandwich today cut with a LunchPunch sandwich cutter.  She has yellow and red grape tomatoes surrounding the sandwich.  At the top left are crown shaped cantaloupe pieces with a princess wand pick and at the top right are kiwi slices with a tiara on top packed in her Easy LunchBoxes container.

For her snack today, my 4 year old has a Happy Tiffin stainless bento filled with sliced mangos, a peeled clementine, 2 Crimson Gold tiny apples and whole cashews.

My 2 year old had leftovers from last night.  She had plums, carambola (star fruit) spaghetti squash with marinara sauce topped with dairy free parmesan and pineapple chunks packed in her LunchBots Quad stainless lunch container.

Happy lunch packing!

Things I used to make this lunch:

The girls are finally back to school today!  I bought myself the new Sweet Treat Lunch Punch cutters as a present to myself.  How thoughtful of me!  The girls LOVE them and are excited for their new sandwich shapes.  Today Miss G got a cupcake to celebrate the new year and her first day back after the holidays.  She had a soybutter and jam on whole grain bread.  I used honey to stick on the fun sprinkles.  The mini apple got a party hat pick for fun.  To the bottom right are cheddar soy crisps and to the left are blackberries and small picks of blueberries above the sandwich.  She had ice water to go with her lunch.

Little Miss A hasn’t had much of a lunch appetite again this week so I kept it small today.  She picked a little at each thing but didn’t eat much.  She’s at that funny toddler age where she either chows down or eats like a little bird.  I made her a small soybutter and jam squirrel sandwich on whole grain bread.  With that she had a few blackberries, and in the squirrel cup she had blueberries with chocolate covered sunflower seeds on top and a couple of mini carrots.  She also had ice water with her lunch.

Back to the grind, everyone!  Wishing everyone a prosperous year of kept resolutions.

I was a bit apple happy this morning so Miss G got an apple shaped sandwich on whole wheat with peanut butter, jelly & honey.  I put some green sprinkles on the leaf part of the sandwich.  This picture isn’t the greatest 🙂  The strawberries are all cut into small apples.  I used a small tulip cutter to make mozzarella string cheese flowers & put them on picks with leaves.  I halved an apple after using the same large apple cutter.  Then soak the apple in some kind of citrus juice and water to prevent browning.  Little G loves lemon juice so that’s what I used today.  I also used some cute separators to keep the sandwich from getting soggy.

Just including another awful picture so you can see that I included some leftover Annie’s mac & cheese and carrots cut like suns.  Underneath them I spread ranch dip.

Little A joined her sister for the morning at school again today.  She got two little elephant sandwiches, cashews for nibbling along with a couple of pecans, sun shaped strawberries and a mozzarella cheese stick cut for grass underneath.  In the small round bento, she also got leftover Annie’s mac & cheese with a cut up a Dominex brand vegetarian eggplant meatball which she loves.  Both kids drink ice water and get a pouch of Lifeway Kefir in their lunches.
