Zane is currently doing a 100 book challenge as he has fallen behind in his reading level. I thought doing a fun book theme for his lunches would be another great way to encourage him to read. Also a fun way to celebrate Dr Seuss’ birthday!
Monday: Green Eggs and Ham Bento: Ham, egg dyed in green, broccoli, and apples in red and white stripes.
Tuesday: Ant on a Log Bento: Peanut butter celery with raisin ants, ant kabobs (olives), Aunt Annie’s Bunny Graham Crackers, and apples.
This is a book from Zane’s reading bag from school that he loves. A dad helps his boys make a healthy snack instead of having cookies and ice cream after school.
Wednesday: Goodnight Moon Bento: Waffle PB&J sandwhich, cheese stick (cow jumping over the moon), Aunt Annie’s Bunny Graham Crackers with Gold Fish Moons, and applesauce (mush) carrot stars.
Thursday: One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish Bento: Fish cheese sandwich, broccoli “bubbles”, goldfish, and apples.
Friday: Zoom Rocket, Zoom! Bento: Rocket PB&J sandwich with grape windows and broccoli smoke, Space Goldfish, and mandarin orange planet.
Things I Learned
- Grab up fun snacks when you see them, I found the space goldfish and grabbed them up
- Fun themed lunches can help make school even more fun, even school
- Think outside of the box with veggies like adding the carrot stars to the applesauce. To get the sweet part of the lunch he had to eat the carrots too.
