Tooth Fairy is a peanut butter sandwich on wheat & white wheat - I made her of both so that I could pop the star out and flip it over for contrast. The Lunch Punch imprints the fairy image, but cuts the star right through. The girls also got celery & cheese toothbrushes, grapes and tomatoes on tooth picks (haha), and a Chobani Champions greek yogurt.
Pickle got a Tooth Fairy sandwich but I'd need a magic wand to get him to eat celery, tomatoes and grapes! He wanted his in an EasyLunchboxes like the others though, so I obliged - and added alphabet biscuits. Here's his:
These lunches were being eaten at home so the tooth picks (hahaha), yogurt cups, and juice box sticking out of the EasyLunchboxes weren't a problem, but for a school lunch, I'd have to arrange things differently. And since we are practicing for back to school lunches, that's what I did:
Though the Chobani Champions cups fit in the medium section, the lids wouldn't close with them in there, so I took them out. I usually buy the larger tub of Chobani to scoop my own portion from (and cover with press-n-seal, since the ELB is not spill-proof) anyways, but we had these left over from camping. They could also just be packed separately since they ARE self-contained. This freed up a space to move the grape skewers into, and the tomato tooth picks, with only 2 per pick, fit in the smallest section. Success! The lids went on :) We also had juice pouches left from camping so the sproutlets got those too. Pickle's lunch I left as is, since he normally takes his sandwich in sandwich-sized boxes, not EasyLunchboxes.
The celery & mozzarella toothbrushes were so easy. The pieces of string cheese fit perfectly in the curve of the celery, I didn't need to attach them with anything! I used a mini cutter from a bento cutter set to make bristles but I think they'd be cute even without that detail.
The girls loved the celery toothbrushes - Bella even hammed it up pretending to brush her teeth with hers, and insisted I get a pic for her Facebook Wall :)
Want some tooth picks?
I have heaps of these tooth picks, so I've decided to share them. Like I said, they'll be fun to make special lunches for kidlets who've lost teeth, are visiting the dentist, getting braces off, or to add a smile to lunch :)
I've made 3 packets of 8 teeth, and will send 1 packet each to 3 readers :)
