Funny Food Face

Pin It

Made this dinner for A and B the other night.  It was very easy and the girls loved it.  The hair is obviously strawberries, but you could do cut grapes too.  The eyes are wheat bread that I cut with a cookie cutter.  I then have salami circles and a sprinkle on top.  A eats the sprinkles first and B doesn't like them, so she puts them aside and A has them when she has finished her dinner.  The nose is a baby carrot and the ears are Colby Jack cheese that I used a heart cookie cutter on.   Heart cookie cutters are great because in addition to hearts you can make lots out of half a heart. The mouth is a silicone muffin cup with peach yogurt.  I don't always have time to do dinners that look this fun, but when I do the girls always clean their plates!

  6. Tricia, thanks but not very creative. A face is the easiest thing to do. If I make a playground scene out of the food, that's creative! :-)

  34. I love your blog! My little guy is not quite old enough for all these activities, but I am going to add it to my blog list so when he is, I know where to come for inspiration. I am not all that creative, so this is great!
