Mealtime is now playtime! This week at Celebrations we're all about playing with food! Some of our favorite bloggers have been combining their craft and culinary skills to create some marvelous, mealtime masterpieces. We love these recipes, because they don’t require any special ingredients; it’s a matter of reworking ingredients you already have in order to create artistic meals.
Jill from, Kitchen Fun with My Three Sons, has dedicated her blog to making fun, healthy, creative snacks and meals for her children. She has recipes for Pooh Bear pancakes and turtle shaped hamburgers. However, it’s her recipe for this Angry Bird sandwich that caught our attention!
“An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” said the green frog! Jenn, writer of the Clean and Scentsible, made this healthy, apple frog for her children after long mornings of playing outside. This little frog is so cute it may be hard to eat!
This is the only mouse we want hanging around the kitchen. Why? He’s made out of cheese! Instead of just putting some cheese and crackers on a plate, present these snack time staples in a unique way. The cheese mouse pictured includes olive, sesame seeds and hotdog slices, but Tiffany who posted this little mouse on Cute Food for Kids offers several substitutions, so you can please even your pickiest eater!
Susan Yuen is a pro at making kid friendly bento boxes! Traditionally, a bento box is a jam packed, healthy, Japanese lunchbox. Yuen expands on this tradition, by incorporating her son's and daughter’s favorite cartoon characters and various themes. Disney’s popular TV show, “Phineas and Ferb,” inspired this bento box posted on Yuen’s blog, Hawai`i's Bento Box Cookbook.
