Yesterday we did an ocean themed lunch. It was another big hit.
When They asked what they were having for lunch and I told them special hotdogs, Nephew informed me he doesn't like hotdogs and wouldn't be eating them. However, when he saw the Octo-dogs he asked for seconds.
On the plates:
Octo-dog on top of a Cheesy Beach cheese slice
Berry Blue Jello Ocean
Redvine fishing pole
Berry Blue Jello Whale and Fish
Water to drink
Couple of close ups:
Jello fish and whale
DD ate everything and Nephew ate everything except the Jello ocean, which is pretty good and I didn't even mind because that was a lot of Jello and he made up for it by eating two octo-dogs. They even made up a story about the food while they ate, which will probably end up as a separate post.
Today's food seemed less exciting to me because I couldn't think of a good theme I wanted to do with the letter of the day from preschool (S), but they gobbled it up and seemed to enjoy it none the less.
Today they got stegosaurus sandwiches. I used my stegosaurus cookie cutter to cut the shapes after the sandwiches were made. Nephew wanted grilled cheese again and DD wanted turkey, so they ate different sandwiches.
String cheese trees (I pre-strung the tops to make the leaves!)
Gold fish crackers
Peanut butter cracker sandwiches
Milk to drink
Gobble gobble went the kiddos and the story was creative again.
Happy birthday to Nephew's mommy today. If I had a birthday cake shaped cookie cutter that was going to be the theme of the day, but alas, for all the wonderful shapes my cutter pack had it did not include birthday stuff.
Tomorrow will be lots of fun celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday though! Day 1 of the SOLSC is today.
