Animal Kindergarten & 3’s School Lunches (and a fun counting game!)

For last Friday’s lunch (I am OBVI up to date with and on top of all things in my life), I went with a piggy theme. My little one is learning about farm animals and I thought my big one would just appreciate a piggy shaped sandwich (who wouldn’t?).

I made piggy shaped sunbutter and jam sandwiches, and used Food Writers to add details. They are perched upon their crusty hay. I also packed Terra chips, plum, corn, and yogurt covered pretzels.

Oink.

Part of today’s homeschool assignment for my Bigs was to create a numbers game that he could share with his class tomorrow. We came up with an elephant themed one.

I wrote numbers from 5 – 100 (by denominations of 5) on peanuts. We stapled some elephant cupcake picks to paper bags and cut a hole in one side of the paper bags, so when you lift the elephant flap, you can feed them. The directions are to feed each elephant according to their tastes – one likes only peanuts counting by 5’s (minus those ending in 0’s), and the other by 10’s. The kids are to say the numbers as they pick them up, as well.

So, for tomorrow’s lunch, I went with an elephant theme.

I made an elephant shaped sunbutter and apple jelly sandwich. I outline him just for a little more detail. I also packed cheddar sandwich crackers, colby jack cheese, corn, plum, and a Little Debbie Star Crunch.
