Did you know that a group of turtles is called a “bale”? And that turtles have their own water filtration system? It’s true. I read it on the Internet. For tomorrow’s lunches, I went with a turtle and green theme. Only my Bigs will be in school tomorrow, but I didn’t even think about that until after I’d already made Smalls’ lunch, as well.
I made turtle shaped sunbutter and strawberry jelly sandwiches. I used my Food Writers to add details. The boys ate the sandwich scraps as I made these lunches. I also packed cotton candy grapes, blueberries for Bigs, a cute little plum, snap pea crisps, and applesauce with turtle sprinkles.
In continuing with Pond Week, I made another turtle lunch for my Bigs. I like how this one came out better than the other.
This little guy has a bit more personality. It’s a PB&J. I also packed honey wheat pretzels, assorted raisins, one date, strawberries, an organic yogurt squeeze, and a homemade dark red velvet cookie. It was big so I cut it in half. I also stuck a few turtle sprinkles on it. Because, sprinkles.
For my Smalls:
He requested pancakes this time, so I made three little PB sandwiches. Under one of those is a red velvet cookie. I also packed a few purple carrots, honey wheat pretzels, grapes, a few raisins, and one date.
And since I’ll be Co-op parent tomorrow, I made a lunch for me too:
I packed purple carrot slices, beet hummus, plain hummus, raisins, strawberries, nuts, dates, and some plain Greek yogurt, mixed with a little bit of maple sizzurp.
Happy (almost) Friday Eve,
Tomorrow begins Pet Week for my Bigs’ class. How exciting! They get to learn all about pet-type animals and vets, and will end the week with a pet parade.
For tomorrow’s lunch, I went with the turtle theme (I should have titled this, “Crooked Turtle” – I realized too late that my picture was off…by a lot. #gotnotimetofix):
I made a turtle-shaped ham and mayo sandwich. I made his creepy little smile with my Food Writers. I also packed the scraps as his turtle hill (can turtles even go up hills, I need to know), cheese, grapes, strawberries, pretzels, and one gummy worm. I feel like turtles eat worms. (do they, I need to know).
