Simple Patriotic Preschool Lunch
School is out! For us working parents that often means the scramble of finding summer care for our children. None-the-less in many ways it is more relaxed! Most of us also manage to squeeze in some vacation time in the summer as well. My family will be packing up and heading to the New England seacoast in less then 3 weeks for a full 7 day respite! I am definitely looking forward to that!
My toddlers do actually continue year round at preschool so the lunch packing never stops. This week with Independence Day coming, is a short week for my kiddos, only 3 days. So I just had to sneak in a simple Patriotic Lunch for the holiday.
I used red and blue silicone baking cups to start with. This gave my Lunchbots Duo some additional compartments and set the patriotic background. I added strawberries in the blue cup (for contrast) and cucumber stars in the red cup. I set down a layer of Late July Mini Peanut Butter Cracker Sandwiches (I am not paid to promote their brand but love their organic snacks). I added a sandwich cut with a star cookie cutter and a smaller cheese star as a fun detail. A fun lunch with simple details. I might have added a fun food pick but alas just didn’t have one appropriate for this theme! That’s OK… I think the red, white and blue theme comes across enough!
