While it's also an added job to remember do each day, I'm kind of enjoying getting to be creative with her snacks, without the self-inflicted pressure to make it cute and themed each day, like with Z's lunches.
|Naturebox Asian rice crackers, shelled edamame beans, strawberries|
The Asian rice cracker assortment was one of the snacks in our August Naturebox. I love these because the chili crackers aren't all spicy and mouth-burnery like most of the assortments I can find at the store. Plus these are all natural, so I know they're safe!
The Mamegoma box is a hand-me-down from Kidlet at Bento for Kidlet. Squeee!
|CoJack cheese, Rosemary Crisps crackers, purple carrot flowers, cheddar Chickadees crackers|
To help break up the monotony of orange, I used some new bright colored square silicone cups I found on eBay (imported from China or someplace.) So pretty! Plus they kept the box clean! I only had to wash the lid (and the cheese-filled silicone cup, of course! The others just needed a quick rinse and wipe.)
|Strawberry, carrot flowers, edamame, TJ's version of Pirate Booty|
The Paperchase boxes are another Kidlet hand-me-down!
|Horizon Organic milk box, TJ's version of Veggie Straws chips, Kale Chips, smoked Gouda cheese|
After cutting some rectangles freehand, I chopped one in half to make squares. I used one of the eyes from my faces cutters to make the circles (and the assist tool from my CuteZCute to pop them out easy-peasy!) but a bit of straw probably would have done the trick. To get them to stick I just put them all on then smooshed them down. Gouda is softer and creamier than cheddar, so they stuck on real good!
She was extremely excited about her cheese Legos! And as an added bonus, we found a fuzzy caterpillar outside the door at school, and were able to transport him (or her!) home in her snack box! I just offset the lid a little to leave a slice of space for air to get in, then secured it with the strap!
