If you’ve been a reader of the blog for a while, then you know that I love getting creative with food! So, it’s been fun to come up with simple, yet fun ideas for Big Brother’s school lunches! We started off the school year with a fun Star Wars themed lunch (complete with lunch box printables) and we ended the second week with a fun TURBO snail themed lunch! Sooo fun! Suffice it to say that this was a HUGE hit! And, it was actually really easy to put together! With making his lunches, I’m all for creative things that don’t take a lot of extra time! This TURBO lunch definitely fit into that creative, yet easy category! To make your “snails”, just spread some Laughing Cow Cheese or cream cheese on a tortilla and top with ham. Roll up the tortilla, then cut into approximately 1″ sections. Cut a string cheese in half and use a toothpick to attach the tortilla “snail shell” to the sting cheese (just worn your kiddo about the toothpick!). For antennae, stick in a couple of chow mein noodles. Sides for this can be anything you’d like. If you’ve seen TURBO the movie, then tomatoes would be a cute side! But, you can see the only theme thing I did with it was the TURBO fruit snack. The other sides are just some cucumber sticks & black olives, with a container of no sugar added apple sauce. Super easy! It barely took 5 minutes to make and was such a hit with Big Brother!
Would YOUR kiddo enjoy a snail lunch?!
*The containers I use for a lot of his lunches (including the one shown above) are the Easy Lunchboxes. They are my absolute favorite. We’ve had the one set for two years and they are still holding up well!! You can purchase on Amazon below via my affiliate link:
