Early Bird Catches the Worm Bento on Muffin Tin Monday

Last week I taught Pierce about the meaning of the saying "the early bird catches the worm".  And then he found it represented in his lunch box.
Pierce had some cheese crackers in a spider muffin cup, an apple banana crusher (my parents brought these back for the boys from a recent trip to Trader Joes - the boys love them!), an open faced cheese bird sandwich, a gummy worm, and some roasted seaweed.  Yes, my boys (and I) enjoy the roasted seaweed as a snack.  Shocking!

For more fun lunch ideas, check out Muffin Tin Mom.

Very cool! I love that you are giving your kids roasted seaweed! I put dulse flakes on the kids salads, and they don't notice it, but I haven't ever attempted larger pieces :-) I wish that we had a Trader Joes local to us...but we don't :-)

How cute!! I love the chick wiht the worm.

I found roasted sea weed at wholefoods last year when we were in Las Vegas. I do eat seaweed in sushi (cooked shusi), but the flavoring on the seaweed I bought wasn't very good.

So creative! You are surely a food artist.

Do you roast the seaweed yourself or do you buy it like that?

Sharon Wagner said...

Fun, fun, fun. What a creative Mom you are. I don't have kids. But this makes me want to pack my cats a funny lunch like that. I suppose I would have to pack a real bird in the lunch box. I better hold off on that idea.
