|Green bean "seaweed," shark PBHs, Goldfish crackers, string cheese octopus,|
carrot piranhas, apricot
I put the Goldfish crackers in a silicone muffin liner to keep them together and keep them dry.
For the octo-cheese, I took a stick of string cheese and sliced it in half, about halfway up the length. Then sliced it in half again. And each of those four 'legs' in half again. I used a food writer to make the face.
The last batch of carrots we got had some fairly large ones, so I was able to use a really mini fish-shaped metal bento cutter (Daiso) to cut fish from the coins (rather than try and cut planks along the carrot and punch shapes out from those.) I think they look kind of like piranhas.
The apricot was a second one taken from leftovers at Monday's free lunch in the park (she took a few bites out of it before falling asleep in the car, so I saved it.)

black plum, carrot scraps and broccoli
Bottom: leftover blueberry bagel from Monday's lunch, her lunch
She really enjoyed pulling apart the cheese-o-pus, but didn't end up eating much of anything else. Just the carrots, I think. And the Goldfish. But she still had a cold, and she tends not to eat much when she's sick. Which is why her lunch was a little sparse to begin with. She ate some more between her nap and Little Gym dance class.
