I wanted to surprise my daughter with a special lunch the other day so instead of just a regular peanut butter and jelly sandwich, I decided to create a little underwater scene.
I just cut the sandwich with a cookie cutter, put on an icing eye, and drew a mouth with an edible marker. The bubbles are just slices from the narrow end of a carrot and the seaweed is carrot shavings. I used carrots because that's what we had, but any fruit or veggie could be used, really.
Ashlyn loved it and thought it was funny that when she wanted more and I gave her the scraps, I called them sea snakes. :) Do you create fun little meals for your kids?
