Circus Week – Horse VPK School Lunch

Tomorrow is Bigs’ last circus day. It’s been such a fun week for them. They got their faces painted, they played carnival games, won carnival prizes, and did lots of learning games.

To finish out the week, I went with a horsey lunch. Again, I was thinking about “Water for Elephants”. It’s sort of my go-to circus movie. Well, that and Britney Spears’ “Circus”. You know.

I made a horse shaped PB&J. The poor thing looks like another My Little Pony. I just can’t seem to get a real horse look. Neigh. The grand horsey is standing atop his bread crusty hay. I also packed pretzels, fruit salad (grapes, blackberries, and raspberries), and an organic yogurt squeeze for dessert.

Happy Weekend!

Circus Week – Elephant VPK School Lunch

For tomorrow’s lunch, I thought I’d go for an elephant theme. And then I started thinking about the movie, “Water for Elephants” and I got really sad. But it had a good ending. So I’m less sad.

I made an elephant shaped PB&J sandwich. I also packed an aprium (those things are SO good!!), some pretzels, watermelon, two iced animal crackers, a few chocolate animal crackers, and an organic yogurt sqeeze.

Circus Week – Lion VPK School Lunch

The countdown to the end of school is here! My big boy has 7 more school days left! This second-to-last-week’s theme is…drumroll……CIRCUS!!!

I think I like the idea of a circus. I don’t remember ever having been to one, although I might have, as a child. I think it would be exciting, what with all the corndogs and cotton candy. I’m not so sure about the animals though. I don’t know enough about their treatment and training to feel comfortable about the way they enjoy their life in the circus.

I like the circus and carnival¬†theme a lot, however. I even used it for my Bigs’ 4th birthday party.

So, for Bigs’ lunch tomorrow:

I went with the lion! I made a lion-shaped PB&J, and used some gold spray and Food Writers to add details. I also packed a beautiful, sweet, fuzzy aprium (a cross between an apricot and a plum), raspberries, blackberries, seasoned corn, a few pretzels, and some iced animal crackers for dessert.

Come one, come all!
