Leprechaun lunch

What a great way to get a picky 4 year old to eat lots of carrots on this St. Patrick's Day! He wanted peanut butter and jelly so I just tinted apple jelly with a drop of green food coloring. I put it on the outside and the peanut butter inside. I used celery, carrot, and marshmallows on the hat. I took a mini marshmallow and cut it in half. Took a snip out of the top and shaped into a heart to make the clover. I cut the carrots on the beard in half...I didn't want to over load him! A celery nose and raisins on the eyes. I used a twizzler strip for the mouth. Use kitchen scissors to cut the hat out of the bread. It's quick and easy!


  1. Super cute! I've pinned it and am linking to it in my St. Patrick's Day round-up either today or tomorrow. :)


  2. brilliant use of veggies! I've linked to you here:
