As promised, here I am with the rest of the pictures of this week’s day camp snacks and lunches.
Tuesday’s snack was homemade Star Wars cookies (from this recipe) and cut-up strawberries with light saber cupcake picks (as mini forks). I used my new snack-sized PlanetBox Shuttle boxes for the snacks. I can’t say enough great things about PlanetBox (no, they aren’t paying me to say this … though that would be great! ;)). The boxes are durable, I love the stainless steel look, and they hold a lot of food. When I saw that they had launched this new smaller size, I just couldn’t resist. These boxes will last forever, and I figure even after the boys outgrow the cute food stage, I could use them to hold more “plain” lunches. Sometimes I even use them for myself or Johnny!
Lunch for Jack that day was packed in an EasyLunchbox, my other favorite lunch box. These are lightweight, easy to open, and also durable. He had a PB&J with a crescent moon, a planet, and a rocket ship cut out of the top slices of bread, star-shaped cucumber slices, and grapes. The loose planetary theme is in honor of his day camp’s “space” theme.
Wednesday, both boys brought a Hawaiian roll, grapes, and a Babybel cheese with a star cut out of the wax (I only took a picture of one of the snack boxes; I figured you didn’t need to see a second identical snack box!).
Jack’s lunch, packed in his PlanetBox, was brown rice with sweet and sour chicken (left over from dinner the night before), heart-shaped cucumber slices, dried guava slices, honeydew balls, and a chewy caramel candy as a treat. The rice and chicken container also has a spill-proof stainless steel lid. And for those who are wondering, yes, Jack is willing to eat chicken and rice cold.
Thursday, I once again used my smaller PlanetBox boxes to pack the boys each a snack of pitted cherries, honeydew balls, and Goldfish/parmesan stars.
Lunch for Jack, packed in an EasyLunchbox, was dinosaur PB&Js, nectarines, and veggie chips.
Today, snack was emerald plums and nectarines, with a side of Chex Mix.
I sent Jack with a “picnic lunch” of roast beef and ham on sword picks, Babybels with rockets and planets cut out of the wax, cucumbers, tomatoes, graham crackers, and orange slices. There’s also a Hershey’s Kiss for dessert.
I hope everyone has terrific weekends!
