There are more than sandwiches you can use to make a lunch. Sometimes I forget about that and get into a sandwich rut. So today I took thick slices of Colby Jack cheese and used mini butterfly cookies cutters to turn them into butterflies! I used about 4 slices of thick sliced cheese to make 8 butterflies. I figured that was enough for lunch. Then I used a few Ritz crackers and tossed in a handful of pepperoni sticks. (I buy the pepperoni sticks at Target in the snack aisle.)
The Jello cups are coming up on the expiration date so they made it into the lunchbox today.
I wanted to add a little treat into the box. I haven’t been doing that lately and I found a little packet of Frozen Jelly Belly Jelly beans so that is what is in the center.
And I finished it off with some trail mix. Really it’s just peanuts and raisins now.
It was a fairly simple lunch box that just took about 10 minutes to pull together. I used 2 different butterfly cutters to give some variety. I also wanted to see if Peyton notices there are 2 different butterflies. If I would’ve had more time I could have done a few more different butterflies but I was in a hurry so two is all she got.
Here are links to some of the tools I used today –
