Gingerbread Man bento

Yesterday we made a visit the school to enjoy the Young Inventors Fair in which Nikolai and the other students in the gifted program exhibited their latest ideas. Nikolai submitted a device for capturing the energy in ambient noise and converting it for use in charging batteries. There were so many other great ideas, some very simple, but quite elegant solutions to problems, others of a truly grand scale and every bit as clever. The kids are all so talented!

What would be a gingerbread cookie is in this example a sandwich made with honey wheat bread. Where there would be icing I used provolone cheese. I used bits of raisin for eyes and fruit leather for a scarf, holding them in place with a dot of honey.
He is not too keen on bell peppers lately, but I included a couple of pieces anyway hoping that he'll give them a try again.

Here are the supplies or similar that I used to create  this lunch.
