Cute Food for Kids: Cucumber Sandwich Flowers

By  | 

My Sam is an imaginative little boy. Sometimes, when he doesn’t know I’m there, I just stop and listen to him pretending.  He creates these elaborate universes, populated by his superhero toys. Listening to him is always good for clandestine laughter, but I’m careful to never let on because I don’t want to discourage his wild imagination.  I’m quite interested to see how his inventive way of thinking will play out. He’ll be in first grade this year—look out world!

We’ve been doing some of the get-ready-for-school things. It really makes it feel like summer is over, even though we have a slice of August left.  Sam’s school requires wearing uniforms, so we have that taken care of and we have some new crayons, markers and pencils. Sam has chosen a back pack and a new lunch box—I’ve learned that’s a big deal to a first grader! I’ve been thinking up new lunch and snack ideas. Has anyone else noticed a hungry child can become a grumpy child? Gotta keep that kid fueled so he can keep dreaming and learning!

I recently bought some Horizon Sandwich Crackers — they’re a convenient snack that I feel good about giving Sam. I think it’s important to be aware of wholesome choices for whatever we put into our kids—even snacks. Horizon offers several options that are great for snacking or lunchtime, including Chocolate Snack Grahams and Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers. I used the Cheese Sandwich Crackers to make cute cucumber sandwiches—it’s a great way to get kids interested in eating extra vegetables! Spinach leaves (sans stems) make the base. I used a cute shaped cookie cutter on slices of cucumber and topped them with the Horizon Cheese Sandwich Crackers. Easy and yummy.

I am imagining a terrific first grade experience for Sam this year. He is still imagining he’s a superhero, saving the world. Sounds like a good reality to me.

Stephanie is in love with a boy named Sam. He has taught her that it's okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots. She hangs out here blogging at Spaceships and Laser Beams and at our printable party shop on Etsy.
