Dinosaurs Before Dark!

Z had just read the Magic Treehouse book "Dinosaurs Before Dark" where they meet dinosaurs and fly on a pterodactyl. Or pteranodon. Whatever. I don't know dinosaurs very well. And I got these Organicasaurus puff treats in one of our monthly foodie boxes - so it was the perfect time to make some dino-riffic lunches!

For Z I used my pterodactyl cutter (pteranodon?) on her sandwich, and gave it an Enjoy Life mini chocolate chip eye.

I dino'd up her apples and edamame with some cute dinosaur cupcake rings, and turned her puffs different ways to make a brontosaurus fighting a T-Rex.

For E I used a mini brontosaurus cutter (apatosaurus. Whatever) for a more recognizable dinosaur profile. And I turned her T-Rex-shaped puff snacks sideways to look like brontosauri. Brontosauruses? 

She got some dinosaur cupcake picks in her side compartments.

  1. OMG.. so cute. We are preparing for kiddo's dino themed birthday and can't find cutters locally.


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