I was looking for a healthy snack for Molly's little sister's preschool class and I found some really cute ideas, including the strawberry mice from today. I also found some really cute ladybug strawberries. Then, I started to look for some cute ideas for Molly's lunch and I found a whole lot more lady bug ideas.
Our vegetable is carrot sticks, again. Molly requested these. We were a bit shocked since she usually isn't much of a fan but we are happy that she has changed her mind.
Our dairy side is a Babybel cheese. We cut out a small circle for the head and smaller circles (we used a straw) for the dots. Then, we used our toothpick/food coloring trick for the face again.
Our fruit side is strawberry ladybugs. We sliced a small piece of the strawberry to create wings. Next, we stuffed half of a grape into the end of the strawberry where we removed the hull. Finally, we pushed in a few mini chocolate chips for the dots and eyes.
Finally, our dessert is plain old vanilla yogurt. We added some "ladybug dots" a/k/a, mini chocolate chips for extra fun.
