Super Simple Super Hero Preschool Lunch

super simple preschool lunch


SUPER is the theme of today’s lunch! Super simple that is! Lately my time has been much consumed. Lots of stress at work, a child with an upcoming surgery and numerous other things that have distracted me from blogging! Nothing however has stopped me from packing lunch! In many ways it is therapeutic for me! When times are tough though, I keep it simple!

Today’s showcased lunch was packed for my 4 year old Trevor. Lately Trevor has been obsessed with superheroes! This is very entertaining for me as I know he has never seen them on TV, never watched a movie but yet he still knows all the superheroes! He loves Spiderman, Batman, Captain America, Iron Man etc. Where does this come from? Well lucky for me I have some Marvel Superhero Cookies cutters! These are a spring loaded press style cookie cutters and really you could use any cutter you could find!

Before I assembled today’s sandwich I simply pressed my cookie cutter into one of my bread slices. In this case a cutter depicting Iron Man! Trevor was excited! I popped in some organic apple sauce and some Original Tings snacks by Pirate Brands. I know this is not a fancy lunch but a great example of a simple but fun lunch I packed for me preschooler. Now he is asking for the other superheroes in the cookie cutter pack! I know I can easily deliver!

This lunch is packed in an Easylunchboxes container.

Simple Patriotic Preschool Lunch

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

patriotic preschool

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!
