Twelfth Day of Kindergarten: Lunch and Snack

K was the letter for the twelfth day of school so I made a kite-shaped sandwich decorated with food safe markers and strips cut from sour ribbon candy. The green container held sunflower seeds, cheddar cheese Ks were below that, and a sweet red pepper rounded out the left side. On the right side of the Sassy box, I packed red raspberries, blueberries, carrots, sugar snap peas, cherry tomatoes, and cucumber slices with stars cut from the center. This was an idea that I attempted to copy from BentOnBetterLunches, a favorite bento blog of mine. Cristi's cucumber stars looked much better than mine; I needed larger cucumbers to allow the tomatoes to show.

For snack, my daughter had more berries, a large cheddar K, some letter K Cheez-Its, and a Milano cookie with a letter K icing decoration. The letter K is one that she is a little less familiar with so I was trying to emphasize it. We had a brand new box of Scrabble Cheez-Its, but I struggled to find many "K" crackers in it. I finally found six of them after searching through almost the entire box. She liked this snack and ate everything.
