Christmas kids lunch
Christmas Lunch: The Grinch

Hey Lunchbox Dad readers, it is Christmas break so no new lunch but I thought I would go over one of the lunches I did with my daughter on Good Day Sacramento.  There is still time to make this today for your kids, even though they are out of school!

Start with your background of lettuce.  Then cut out your bread into the shape of a santa hat.  Make sure and make two pieces since it is a sandwich!  Put peanut butter on the inside and then coat the top with some sort of red jam.  Then roll up some cream cheese to put on for the brim and then a ball at the end of the hat.  Make sure and do this last or you will get red bleeding into the cream and cheese.  Next, cut out a little collar out of bread and put cream cheese on that.

For the face, cut a green apple in half and use food dye or a food dye marker to draw the face.  Go ahead and try it, don't be intimidated, its not that hard!  Cut out some cheddar cheese for the eyes and use a little red food coloring on that as well.

Put it altogether like it is shown above and finish off sprinkling craisins and yogurt covered raisins to add a little holiday cheer.  Remember to think about what your kids like and don't like to tailor the lunch for them so they will eat it!

Have a great Christmas and stay tuned because there are some really fun things in store for next month.  Also, share this blog with whoever you think might enjoy it and follow us on Pinterest and Twitter!
