Under the Sea Lunch
Activity DesignerSandra Lin
When it's time for back to school, it's time to start planning my kid's lunches. I must admit that most of the time, I barely pull something together! But every once in a while, I get inspired to do a little something special.
I thought I would share a lunch inspired by an "Under the Sea" theme. Here, I packed everything in one lunch--but you can definitely spread things out so that your child can look forward to an "Under the Sea" week with an item per day from the menu:
* Fish Pita
* Egg Boat
* Fishy Snack -- Gone Fishin'
What You'll Need
- post-it notes paper
- celery or pretzel rods
- peanut butter, or other nut butter or sunflower seed butter
How We Did It
I added a Fishy Snack to this lunch. You need celery (or pretzel rods), peanut butter (or other nut butter or sunflower seed butter), and Goldfish crackers. It's so fun for the kids to "go fishing" by dipping their celery in the peanut butter and then picking up the Goldfish with the sticky peanut butter. They get a bite every time they fish!
Finally, I thought that a band to decorate an apple could be pretty cute, and look what our designers at Kiwi Crate made for me! It's a scuba mask for the apple. You can download it here.
Just print and cut out the mask. then tape it around an apple. If you'd like, you can even draw some eyes on the mask to give it a little personality.
