Food Fun Friday - Breakfast Face

Today I thought I would share a quick kids meal I did for the girls.  I am all about fast and easy food, and breakfast doesn't get much easier than this.

I am a big fan of faces because they are just so easy and lets face it (pun intended) your kid will always recognize a face.  I have made things for them that I had to explain and that is never good. 

I cut some grapes in half for the hair and used half a piece of bacon for the mouth.  The nose is a wedge of string cheese and the eyes are wheat bread with nutella.  I cut the eyes out using a medium sized circle cookie cutter and added marshmallows for the eyeballs.  Using my trusty Wilton food writers, I made the pupils.  You can add some banana ears if you'd like, but I was fresh out of bananas.  There a million variations and things you can play with.  Make it your own.

Super easy and impressive, especially if you're a kid.  Think you have to spend a long time to make a fun meal your kids will remember?  This took all of 5 minutes.  And they ate it all which is a rarity in this house.  For more food ideas check out Food Fun.  


  1. This is great! My daughter loves it when I arrange her food or use the divided tray-like kid plates. Thanks for sharing your ideas with us :)

  2. Smart thinking. Takes no more time to make the face, than to just plonk everything on the plate.

  3. I am loving your blog. I love all the fun activities you can do with you little ones. I have a 3 year old and have been looking for ne learning ideas to do with him.

    Thanks so much for becoming a new follower of my blog and for you kind comment. I am now your newest follower. :)

  4. How creative!! I think you and I agree on the fact that children learn through working with their hands. Such a fun post.

  9. Hi Vicky,
    I wish there had been a blog like yours when I was raising my two little girls! But I don't know how you have time to do it! I browsed, and you have some great ideas for little ones. Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment.

  10. My kids always loved when I made faces or funny shapes with their food. The youngest one still likes it at times. Time sure flies.
