Flowers for Kindergarten
|Organic carrots, GF PB sandwich "wands," peppermint marshmallows, organic strawberries|
I cut a carrot stub with a small flower veggie cutter, then cut that into coins and put them in a small silicone flower cup to keep with the flower theme.
She had been promised some of these gourmet marshmallows in her lunch, in exchange for getting ready for bed the night before. I stuck some flower picks and a leaf pick in them to make them more exciting, since using a flower cutter on them hadn't really done much. (I ate those attempts. Omnomnom!)
And a few lone strawberries in a medium silicone flower cup.

|Organic grapes, GF PB sandwich wand, GF pretzels, organic carrots and tomatoes|
My plan backfired, as I forgot that Z had a midday appointment, and that the girls would be eating side-by-side in the car. E was upset that she didn't have any "mah-mawwoes" and Z was miffed that she didn't have any extra pretzels. *sigh* Luckily they were both happy to share!
|Organic carrots, clementine, GF PB sandwich wands|
I hand-cut notches into the rest of the carrot, that was too skinny to use the veggie cutter on. I put the flower coins into a flower muffin cup, and tucked some carrot sticks in behind. I used a Sharpie on a clementine peel to make more flowers, and added a few extra sandwich wands.
