Week 28: Star Wars

Star Wars kids lunchWeek 28: Star Wars.  My family has really been addicted to Star Wars lately, so I figured it was time to do a lunch on it!  My kids have been watching some of the movies and I just bought the book "Vader and Son" which is hilarious.  You can find it on Amazon.  I incorporated some of my kids favorite characters and themes.  I used the Go Green Lunch Box.  You can find my review of it HERE. I liked that I could do a couple different Star Wars scenes in this box with the different compartments.

As always, let me know your own ideas for a Star Wars lunch.  I also have another one coming for May the 4th.  Make sure to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest and spread the word about www.lunchboxdad.com to all your friends.  Also, click on the button below to see this lunch and more like it today on Meatless Monday Blog

Ingredients
1 hard-boiled egg
1 Babybel round cheese
1 serving star shaped cookies or crackers
1 piece dried mango
1 kiwi
1 Tbsp. fat-free cream cheese
1 half of both green and red apples
2 leaves romaine lettuce or 1 serving wagon wheel pasta
1 piece of natural fruit leather

   Yellow, blue, and red food coloring or food coloring markers

Directions
  1. Cut a “head” shape out of dried mango for C3P0 as shown in picture.  
  2. Mix equal parts yellow, blue, and red food coloring in a small bowl to make the color black.  Dip the end of a toothpick in the black coloring and use it to draw the details on C3P0’s face.  Use dots of cream cheese for the eyes.  Repeat with black and blue coloring for R2D2 on the hard-boiled egg.  You can use food color markers if desired.
  3. Cut skin off kiwi and slice fruit in half.  Use one half to shape Yoda’s oval head, as shown in picture.  Cut triangle ears out of the other half of kiwi and place on either side of his head.  Create eyes with small dots of cream cheese and make facial details with black food coloring as shown.
  4. Slice two long narrow pieces of a red and green apple to make the sword shaped light sabers.  Cut two small lightsaber “handles” out of fruit leather as shown in picture.
  5. Use black food coloring or markers to draw the details of the Death Star space station on the round Babybel cheese (or similar type of cheese). 
  6. Depending on your container, arrange all the elements as desired.  You can use either romaine lettuce or cooked wagon wheel pasta as a background.  Garnish with a few small star shaped cookies or crackers.
  7. You can buy a lunch box, like the one shown in the picture, at gogreenlunchbox.com
