Don't let meals be run-of-the-mill and boring just because school is out. Turn lunchtime into craft time by letting your kids make shapes and faces from bread, creamy peanut butter (it spreads more smoothly) and fruit. Hand over raw ingredients and a butter knife to your kids and watch them get creative. And talk about healthy choices—brown bread makes a much more attractive bear face than white.
|1 slice brown bread||Bananas, raisins, blueberries|
|Creamy peanut butter or Nutella|
Trim the crust off the bread and shape the bread into bunny ears or a rounded bear face, or cut a sunburst to suggest a lion's mane.
Spread the face with peanut butter almost to the edges of the bread. If you're using Nutella, you can use this darker spread for contrast, such as the insides of the bunny ears.
Make a face with banana slices as you like. You can use raisins for pupils or snouts. Blueberries also make good eyes. If you let the kids use a butter knife or a fruit knife, they can trim the shapes as they please.
