I was going to wait to post this one, but I was too excited about it so, bonus - two posts in one day! Keeping you busy, that's all ;) Anyway, the military blankets my family fairly well, but even if it didn't, Memorial Day weekend is this coming weekend, and the Fourth of July is approaching fast as well, so why not help the kiddos get into the spirit with this fun little lunch:
I was pretty pleased with how this one came out since I really didn't have too much of a plan when I started other than "stars." Here's how to make it:
The stars at the top left are whole grain tortillas with turkey, cut with a small star cookie cutter. Then I used edible food markers to color one blue, and two with red stripes to look like the American flag.
Next, I turned two patriotic colored cupcake liners inside out, and filled one with matchstick carrots (baby carrots are still a little hard for Alexis) and one with ranch dressing for dipping.
And finally, yes, that is a silicone ice cube tray, but instead I filled it with blueberries.
(You can find all these supplies on Amazon through the links below).
Alexis said: "You made me ice cubes??" :) But then we had fun talking about 'red, white, and blue' and the Flag, and the upcoming holidays. Hope your little ones enjoy as much as Alexis did!
Happy Memorial Day!
