One of my favorite things to do with my kids is to read books with them before bed. The really cool thing is that my daughter is old enough to get into some of the books that my dad and I read together. One of our favorite series to read right now is The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. You may be remember my "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe Lunch" from awhile back. This weekend we finished The Magician's Nephew so it was obviously time to make another lunch from the series. This book is the prequel to The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe and it describes the creation of Narnia.
In this lunch you see one of the main characters, a pegasus horse, named Fledge. There is also the apple tree with the magic silver apples. In the side dishes are dried apples (for the apple tree), Teddy Grahams, and Annies Organic Rabbit Crackers. In the book you find Aslan creating all the Narnian animals so this was an easy decision. Lastly, I had to put in the famous green and gold rings made of cucumbers and yellow sweet pepper.
I made this lunch in an Easy Lunch Boxes container. Remember to follow me on all my social media channels including Pinterest and Instagram! The buttons are towards the top corner of my site. Have a great week!
IngredientsWhole wheat bread
Turkey (or other lunch meat)
Silver ball sprinkles
Annie's Organic Rabbit Crackers
Yellow sweet pepper slices
Directions1. Cut tree shape out of the heel of whole wheat bread. Place turkey slice in the main container, spinach leaves on top, and tree on top of that.
2. Cut horse shape out of bread and another out of white cheese. Use cheese scraps to cut out two wings.
3. Place bread horse on top of tree. Secure with a toothpick if desired. Slide one wing under bread horse and place the cheese horse on top of bread horse. Place second wing on top of cheese horse to finish pegasus. The cheese should stick together in the refrigerator.
4. Dip toothpick in honey and make little dot for each silver sprinkle. It sounds for detailed than it actually is. You can also use the toothpick to easily pick up each silver ball and place on the honey dot. The honey will glue the ball to the bread. The whole process only takes a minute.
5. In one side dish place yellow sweet pepper slices and cucumber slices with the middle cut out to form the magic rings.
6. In second side dish arrange dried apples, Teddy Grahams, and rabbit crackers.
