Letter B Themed Lunches

My daughter is still enjoying letter-themed lunches, so for the week her class focused on the letter B, we planned bear, bunny, boat, bus, and ballerina lunches.

She took this bear lunch on Monday. I can tell because this photo has good lighting meaning that I packed the lunch and took the photo on Sunday afternoon, rather than late at night in a dark kitchen like usually happens on a weeknight :). She had three little bear-shaped peanut butter sandwiches, almonds in the little yellow bear cup, a few Cheez-Its, three little cheddar cheese bears , grapes with a bear pick, Cherub tomatoes with bear picks and a few pieces of celery and carrots. This was packed in a Sistema box.

Snack that day was packed in a single layer of a pink bento box. She had a raspberry Jello Jiggler in the shape of Phineas from Phineas and Ferb, strawberries with bear picks, and a few yogurt covered pretzels.

Her bunny lunch was packed in our new pink Lego bento box. The bottom section held pieces of orange pepper with a pink bunny pick, sugar snap peas, carrots, pieces of celery with a blue bunny pick, grapes, and slices of apples cut into the shape of bunny heads. The top layer held a bunny-shaped peanut butter sandwich, a few Cheez-Its and a bunny-shaped pieces of cheddar cheese.

Wednesday’s lunch included carrots, celery, red pepper slices, strawberries, grapes, boat-shaped peanut butter sandwiches, yogurt covered pretzels, a piece of cheese stamped with “boat”, and a few pieces of fish-shaped candy in the little green container.

Snack that day was simple. It held popcorn, almonds, and a mini chocolate chip muffin.

Since I had the boat cutter and stamp out, I decided to use it for her dad’s lunch that day too. His lunch was packed in our Planetbox. He had carrots, a sweet yellow pepper, celery, grapes, strawberries, Cheez-its, the same fish-shaped candy, and chicken salad in the little dipper container. I stamped the bread for his sandwich; it read “Rock the Boat” which is a little game he plays with our kids.

I also used a sandwich cutter/stamp for the bus-themed lunch. She had bus-shaped cheese, a little bus sandwich, Cheez-Its, and almonds along with pepper rings on a bus pick with apple slices, grapes, sugar snap peas, carrots, and celery. I also used picks to spell “bus”.

For the last lunch of the week, I used the new pink Lego box again. My daughter had cucumber slices, carrots, apple slices, grapes, yogurt covered pretzels, Cheez-Its, cheddar cheese cubes, and turkey slices. I had a couple of ballerina picks from a cupcake set and made a couple more by cutting the wings off of two from a fairy set.

Looking back at these lunches altogether, I notice that I packed a lot of the same foods repeatedly. I try to avoid that usually, especially in terms of the types of crackers and pretzels. But, the boxes kept coming home mostly empty that week. So, I kept packing was she seemed to be eating.
