Funny Face Lunches

Nikolai's tests are still going on, this week they are on Tuesday and Wednesday and next week will be the last. I wonder why the school can't have it all in one stretch? They have to break it down to consume three weeks! That means every weekend we have to consider his sleeping schedule and ask him about his preparations. Of course as always, he'll tell us that the tests are easy and he does not need any preparations. He's not into watching television but he is into computer games, mainly Minecraft. We reduced his computer time when tests are scheduled and he's not too happy about that. I told him that he's lucky compared to other kids since we have never felt the need to implement the grounding rule.

The croissant in the lunch below looked like a face when I placed it in a lunch box (or was it my imagination? lol), I mean I could see the cheese and it looked like a mouth to me! I decided to add a couple of raisins for eyes to complete the look. He also had dye free choc sunflower seeds, organic orange slices and organic seedless grapes. This lunch was packed in our leak-proof Yumbox panino.

I've not used our mustache cupcake ring which I acquired a few years ago until now, using it in the below lunch. I used a circle cutter for the Mozzarella cheese eyes, used a paper hole puncher for the nori pupils and a raisin for nose. Alongside are yogurt covered fruit snacks, organic apple pieces, organic baby carrots and sugar snap peas. This lunch was packed in a leak-proof Yumbox.

This last lunch was put together so quickly. I used a circle cutter for the 'O' mouth (more like I'm yawning mouth) and raisin eyes (I cut a raisin into half for the wink eye). Alongside is a cereal bar, sugar snap peas, baby carrots and orange slices. This lunch was packed in our Planetbox launch.

Here are the supplies that I used to create and pack these lunches.

  1. All the best for his tests! I actually prefer the kids' tests to be spread out so they have sufficient time to revise for each subject, LOL. These lunches look good!

    1. Thank you so much Jean! Nikolai has the same thought as you, and I am so glad that the exams are over now!:)

  2. Lol, the faces are so funny! I prefer the papers to be spread out too, but mine is the opposite, the main papers are all in a week.

  3. Wow,it must be tough to have all the main papers in one week!! Reminds me of my school days and exams.
