A Fishtastic Lunch!


We made this fun Fish Lunch last year and I remember my then 4 year old just loving this!  It's very easy to make!  We used 2 pieces of bread, 2 slices of cheese, 2 slices of turkey, cheese puffs, colored gold fish crackers, 1 mini marshmallow, 1 raisin.

We cut the bread into a circle and cut the scraps for the tales using kitchen scissors. Cut stripes and circles out of the cheese to fit the bread.  We cut a marshmallow in half for the eyes and cut a raisin in half for the pupils. We used cheese puffs for bubbles and colored gold fish crackers for the surrounding fish.

This lunch is also fun for the kids to help with. Let them design their own fish!

Linking up to these awesome link parties...please check them out!

  13. WOW I wish I thought of this when my daughter was younger, but thanks to you, I'll get a second chance! She's 14 now, but she'll be doing school at home this year, and I'll be watching my 5 y.o. (step) grandson 2-3 times per week. What I can do is plan to let *them* do the creative projects for their lunches!
