Week 30: Chewbacca from Star Wars

Easy Star Wars kids lunch
Week 30: Chewbacca.  Or should I say Chewie, or walking carpet, or furball?  It is May the 4th (National Star Wars Day) this week so this Chewbacca meal is to celebrate the holiday.  This lunch is going to be part of an amazing blog hop this Saturday, so check back on Saturday morning for a link to some other great Star Wars lunches that some talented friends of mine have made.  I'm hoping to celebrate by watching some Stars Wars with my kids.  Well, until Saturday, enjoy this lunch.   Do any of you have any plans to celebrate?  Let me know in the comments below.  Maybe check out my other Star Wars lunch HERE.  Hopefully my daughter thinks with her stomach--just like Chewbacca did!



Ingredients

2 slices whole wheat bread
1 serving low fat creamy peanut butter
1 serving Nutella hazelnut spread
1 handful of blackberries
2 drops of fat-free cream cheese
1 banana

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

Directions
  1. Cut a simple half “head” shape out of 2 slices of whole wheat bread as shown in picture.
  2. Spread Nutella around the edges of his face to make the darker fur.  Use peanut butter to create the lighter fur.  Use Nutella to make the darker “mustache” area above the mouth.  Take a toothpick and blend the edges of light and dark together while also making lines to create a look of fur.  This doesn’t have to be exact, because his fur is messy anyway!
  3. 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 eyes, nose, and mouth details on Chewbacca’s face.  Use drops of cream cheese for the teeth.
  4. Cut 3 slices from the banana.  Trim the round slices into the shape of a Tie-Fighter as shown in the picture.
  5. Place the undecorated slice of bread in your container, then set the decorated slice on top of it. Arrange the blackberries and banana Tie-Fighters around Chewbacca’s head until you are satisfied with the placement.  You might have to trim the blackberries to fit in the space provided.
