The Flash School Lunch!

DC Comics

If you haven't been reading my blog for very long, you should know that superheroes are a huge part of my kids' lives. They go through stages of who is their favorite and usually it changes by the day. However, my son has really taken a liking to The Flash lately. It might be because him and I have started watching the show together on Netflix. He was too young to watch it when it first came out on the CW network, so we are catching up on the series together now.

What I love about watching shows together, with any of my kids, is that it opens up doors to conversations that we wouldn't have otherwise. A good rule for yourself is to come up with questions during the show that you can ask your kids after. Don't just mindlessly consume, but mindfully interact with what you and your kids are putting into your heads. With The Flash, there are plenty of topics to discuss along the lines of helping friends, putting family first, making the best decisions, etc. I can't wait to see how my son reacts to what is coming in later seasons! Of course, he also wants to watch Justice League now. Until then, he gets this lunch to take to school. Below is how I made it.

DC ComicsIngredients: Red apple, cheddar cheese slice, white cheese slice, blueberries, sliced turkey, Babybel cheese, dried cranberries, grape tomatoes, dried mango, skin colored fondant.

1. Slice an apple in half, making sure that the slice will fit in the main compartment of the lunchbox. I used an Easy Lunch Boxes container for this one. Cut lightning bolts and ear pieces from cheddar cheese. The eyes are white cheese. The mouth, nose, and other skin colored parts are fondant. Assemble onto apple. I used toothpicks to hold the ear pieces on and a little cream cheese to hold the eyes and forehead lightning bolts on.

2. Put sliced turkey in middle of compartment and place The Flash apple on top to hide it. Surround with blueberries.

3. Cut the red wax top off of a Babybel cheese round. Place a cheddar cheese lighting bolt on top to make the Flash's logo. Fill the side compartment with dried cranberries and put the logo on the cranberries.

4. For the second side compartment I just wanted to find ingredients that were red and orange. You could really use anything but I chose grape tomatoes and dried mango.
