I *heart* happy lunches.
lunch meat and sliced cheese
cookie cutters of your choice
Sometimes I cut a great big heart, shamrock, bunny, star, circle, or gingerbread man out of the middle of the sandwich. I eat the discarded outside edges and the rest is the perfect size for my preschoolers combined with some crunchy veggies or pickles.
This particular day I made platefuls of festive sandwich makings, handed them plastic knives, and let them go at it. (We also make PBJ cookie cut sandwiches.)
an opportunity to learn safe knife handling
the sense of accomplishment in a DIY meal (sort of DIY)
Making lunchtime fun and creating smiling faces works for me!

An article I wrote a few years ago and originally posted on a WFMW post can be found here with Associated Content -- The Ultimate Family Guide to an ALL OUT Valentine's Day Celebration. It is chuck full of ideas for this fun upcoming holiday. And here's a link to my family blog where I'm hosting a contest to win beaded holiday socks for a special little girl in your life. The contest is easy. All you have to do to enter is submit a name suggestion. Then the winner will be drawn at random from the entries.
