“I Love School” Lunch Boxes

I’m still making my 4 year old cool lunches. He looks forward to them each day and has forgotten about how much he hates school. (I think he never really hated school, he just liked to hear himself say it. Still, the lunches are a good distraction.)


This week he told me he wanted a sandwich with a kitty stuck in a tree and a ladder truck to rescue him. This had me a little worried, because I’m actually a better cook than I am an artist (and I’m not a good cook). I thought I pulled this off pretty well with my cheese quesadilla, cut with kitchen scissors and cookie cutter and colored with food markers.



For the next lunch, he wanted a cereal sandwich. Yes, really.  Not wanting to disappoint, I made him a triple decker peanut butter and jelly sandwich with Cheerios.   He also got some dried cherries and graham cracker bites.  He told me it was delicious.  Not sure I believe him… but I’m happy that he’s happy!
