How to Make a Darling Clementines Flower Food Art School Lunch!

It's never too late in the school year to make a fun food art lunch for your kids! Even in the summertime, your kids will love a good lunch packed with some extra love from you. With a few extra minutes, it's pretty easy to turn your kid's food into a piece of art that they will remember for many school years to come. I love making flower food art because the possibilities are endless and I can incorporate our family's favorite foods, such as Darling Clementines!

 Harry Potter Hogwarts Invitation Letter Food Art Lunch Recipe Ideas!

One of our family's favorite series has to be Harry Potter! We have been working our way through the books and movies with our youngest. Our two older kids have already read them all and seen every movie. We also visited Universal Studios in Hollywood for the first time this year and of course, spent much of our time in Harry Potter World. We had Butterbeer, went on the rides, and they picked out their own wands at Olivanders. I thought it was definitely time for their own Hogwarts letters! It had to be in food form of course. 

This lunch includes a Hedwig Owl sandwich with a Hogwarts letter. There is also Harry Potter's wand, Dumbledore's Elder wand, and Hermione Granger's wand. I also included a chocolate frog, minus the wizard card, unfortunately. Keep reading to find out how to make it for your Wizarding World kids!

How to Make Celery Stick Car Snacks For Your Kids!

As a parent, I can never get enough easy and fun snack ideas to keep in my back pocket. That is why I wanted to pass on to you one of our new favorites, Celery Stick Car Snacks! What I like about these is that they are super flexible, so once you have the Dandy Celery sticks, you can substitute whatever type of filling, meat, cheese, or fruit that your kids like best. 

We always use Dandy Celery sticks in our house because they are so crispy and crunchy. They are packed with flavor and low in calories which makes them a perfect snack for every member of our family. Honestly, I might have dipped a few celery sticks in peanut butter and polished them off while I was making these cars for my kids. So head to your local store to pick up some Dandy Celery to race towards making this fun snack idea for your kids.

Disney Pixar Turning Red Food Art Lunch Recipe

 Disney Pixar Turning Red Food Art Lunch Recipe

If you have been paying attention to movie releases lately, then you've definitely heard of the new Disney Pixar film Turning Red. It's streaming on Disney+ and as fans of Pixar, we had to watch it. It follows Meilin "Mei" Lee, a 13-year-old Chinese-Canadian student who, due to a hereditary curse, transforms into a giant red panda when she feels a strong emotion. It also chronicles her journey into puberty and her relationship with her family, specifically her mom.

We have heard about the controversy surrounding it so we all watched it together as a family. It is rated PG but we wanted to be able to talk about any scenes that we felt were a little mature for our younger boys. However, in the end, I didn't see what all the fuss was about. I thought the movie illustrated what most teenagers go through as they are learning about their emotions changing and how to deal with them. Of course, my teenage daughter loved the part about the boy band 4*Town. She now wants to be a 4*Townie.

 St. Patrick's Day Shamrock Easy Lunch Recipe Idea

It's not easy being green, except on St. Patrick's Day! My family loves celebrating St. Patrick's Day by dressing in green and of course eating green food. Every year we find green cheese at stores like ALDI. One of my favorite things to do is to make corned beef and cabbage. I found a good sale on it this week so I even bought two packages. If you are looking for an easy food art lunch to celebrate, you've come to the right place!


To make corned beef you don't need to do anything fancy. Many times it even comes with all of the spices that you need. You can make it in the oven or in a pressure cooker. We find it easiest to make in our Instant Pot and used this recipe. For the rest of this lunch, you just need a knife, cutting board, and the other ingredients!

How to Make a Dr. Seuss The Cat in the Hat School Lunch

 How to Make a Dr. Seuss The Cat in the Hat School Lunch

I'm not sure that there's a more iconic children's literary character than Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat. He's definitely on the Mt. Rushmore of children's book legends. It has been awhile since I made a Dr. Seuss school lunch recipe for my kids, but since it's his birthday this week, along with Read Across America Day, it was definitely time. These fun book recipes always bring a smile to my kids' faces so I'm not ashamed to admit that I took a bit longer to make these lunches this week.

My three kids have developed different tastebuds when it comes to certain foods so the background of the pinwheel sandwiches in each of my kids' lunches are all different. Feel free to fill the sandwich with whatever ingredients your child prefers. The three varieties I made were nut-free spread and strawberry jam, grilled cheese and turkey (pictured above), and pesto, turkey, cheese, and fresh spinach. Follow the directions below to see how to make the rest of this Dr. Seuss lunch for your children!
