Life's a Beach...

Fun summer beach sand castle lunch! "Life's a Beach" - Biting the Hand That Feeds You
Monday, 6/10/13 - It was Z's last week of preschool (one of them, anyway;) Summer was fast approaching, and I hadn't done anything summer-y yet. Plus I had a little extra time the night before to make it fun! So I did!

(I did something different for Baby, so I'll share that another time!)

String cheese nibblets, popcorn, GF PBJ; organic carrots, strawberries, and kale chips
The sand castle sandwich was made easy with a castle cookie cutter (thanks to BentOnBetterLunches for the idea!) To make it look more sand-castle-y, I stuck in a paper flag cupcake pick that I'd gotten in a cupcake-supplies grab bag. Fun! Instead of crushing gluten-free graham crackers for sand (not that I had any...) I sprinkled in some popcorn. Same thing, right?

To help keep it beachy, I put a sun ring cupcake topper in the bucket cup of cheese. And added a few carrot coins cut with a mini star cutter scattered around like starfish.

flip-flops bookmark cupcake topper and beach ball cupcake pick stuck in the kale chips and strawberries helped keep the theme going. Yay!

  1. My girls are obsessed with the beach after visiting their grandparents this summer. I think they would freak-out if they saw this lunch. :) So cute!


Go ahead! Tell me how awesome I am. Or ask a question. Whatever.
