I have to admit I am finding quite a bit of inspiration in the pending winter and Christmas season! Making these festively themed lunches is bringing me so much joy! With 27 more days to go before Christmas is here I can only hope I don’t burn myself out of ideas before then!
To be honest I originally set out to build a 3 tiered snowman for today’s lunch. It became evident after 2 tiers that 3 would be too tall. After looking over my lunch packing tools I spotted the bear face and decided the sandwich would instead be a snow bear! Many of my lunches are pretty simple to put together but today’s did require some effort. In all I used 5 mini cutters (moon, star, circle, snowflake and winter hat) and 1 bear face stamp. I also decided that this would be 3 year old Trevor’s lunch since a snow bear might be a bit cutesy for 10 year old Brendan!
The winter hat is cut from a red bell pepper (skin side is down against the bread) and pretzels are used for the bear’s arms and legs. He is laying in a bed of snow… okay Oogie’s Popcorn actually almost as if making a snow angel! Apple snowflakes, clementine clouds and a cheese moon adorn the sky. It is a bit of a concept I know but squint and you’ll see it! Maybe? Finally a cheese star is on the bear’s belly. I wished I had a candy cane food pick for the bear to hold! This lunch is served in a Lunchbots Duo.
