Flat Stanley Bento on Muffin Tin Monday

Well, I'm back to packing lunches here.  Usually they aren't elaborate, but on this particular day I decided to pack a fun lunch for Pierce.  He likes the Flat Stanley books, so I decided to attempt to recreate Flat Stanley.  How do you think I did?  You can see what Flat Stanley looks like in the top corner picture on the book.
I was out of fresh fruit, because it was right before grocery store day, so I tossed in an applesauce packet, some carrots, and a bear biscuit to go with the Flat Stanley sandwich.  Flat Stanley was created from provolone and American cheeses on homemade whole wheat bread, raisins (eyes) and a piece of fruit roll up (mouth).

For more fun lunch ideas, check out Muffin Tin Mom.  Happy Labor Day!

I'd say you did "good" on your Flat Stanley idea. I once received Flat Stanley via my mail. My grandson had a project in school, to draw and color Flat Stanley. He sent him to me for a visit. I had a lot of fun photographing him. I put together a booklet, including photos, called "Flat Stanley Visits the Farm". I then sent it back to the school, to complete my grandson's project.

I love these!

Stevie Taylor said...

Impressive! I bet your son loved it! With 4 lunches to pack, I lost my enthusiasm for cute lunches a long time ago. I was going to let the older ones pack their own but when I did the lunches got heavy on the pretzels and desserts and light on the fruit and veggies! Stevie@ruffledfeathersandspilledmilk.com

I would say you did a GREAT job. Do you send these luches to school with him.... If so, I bet all the other kids are jealous.

Ben was asking his Mom this evening if he could take his lunch once a week. She said She would think about it.. I told her there was this great gal that has a blog and her son has started Kindergarden and packs his lunch.. I told her I would take notes and pack the lunch for Ben once a week.. So off to the grocery store tomorrow to get some things for him.
You are so creative....Thanks~!
