Jolly Holiday Hop - Go Green Trees

If you're a regular reader you know that I like to add a Lunchbox Love note to my sproutlets' lunches, and often choose a card that goes with the lunch somehow... but sometimes, the Lunchbox Love note is actually the inspiration for the lunch - like this card featuring a bit of trivia about Christmas trees:


No, I did not know that, and I doubt Sprout does either :) That fun fact inspired her Christmas trees & apples themed Go Green Lunch Box:

The Nutella sandwich tree "lights" are candy-coated sunflower seeds, stuck on with dabs of Nutella. That took a lot longer than I anticipated, I kept dropping them! But I love how the "apple tree" turned out , and it was easy :)

She also has raspberries, a Babybel cheese round "apple" with a leaf pick, & snowflake Ritz crackers. Hidden underneath the cheese is a surprise panda box filled with mint chocolate chips.


Bella has a Christmas tree fact in her Go Green Lunch Box as well ... Did you know that Christmas tree lights were invented by a telephone company employee? ...  Her Grandpa is a retired telephone company employee so she may find that interesting :)

Speaking of her Grandpa, Bella has him to thank for the All-Dressed potato chips in her lunch - he visited last weekend & brought a bag from Canada :) Ketchup chips too, Beanstalk likes those. Besides the chips, she has cocktail tomatoes with a tree pick, mini pepper "Christmas lights", & dried strawberries in a star cup. Beneath the the star is an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie.

Now be on your merry way & see what's for lunch at Mommy & Me Lunchbox! Then keep following the panda for 13+ more lunches!
