Learning with Fruit Leather
November 16th, 2011
Last weekend, Josh and I spent much of Saturday at an adoption conference which — mercifully, blessedly, thankfully — provided free childcare to attendees. The conference ran from 8am to 1pm so we were asked to send a lunch for the munchkins.
This gave me the opportunity to pack a bento box, a project I hadn’t undertaken in a while. (Well, actually I packed two – Buggie got his very own, virtually identical lunch in his very own purple bento box.) Miss Mouse was thrilled to be able to carry her lunchbox with her on this grand adventure and I didn’t let her peek inside before dropping her off.
When she popped open the lid, the following repast awaited:
Sunbutter and Jelly Sandwich Fingers (no crusts, of course)
“Shark Fish” crackers
Strawberry Cereal Bar
And…some artfully cut fruit leather. It’s cheesy and silly but I am a huge fan of using cookie cutters on fruit leather. It just adds such a nice touch to the lunch. Plus, Miss Mouse can practice her letters!
