|He's supposed to have an apple-slice hat, |
but this was just a dry run so I skipped it
The request was for something Christmassy. I wanted to do these adorable banana slice snowmen I saw on Pinterest (obvs.) but I was worried that if I sliced them and got them ready that morning before work, they'd be brown and slimy by snacktime. We tried them the other day and they were totally cute. I will have to do them some other time... maybe for S week?
Anyway, I made a fruit/veggie plate instead. I hope that wasn't lame. I wasn't trying to take a stand or make anyone feel bad about sending junky snacks or anything. I don't even really know what they usually eat, because I don't ever get to go. Whim says it's generally things like goldfish or crackers or fruit. I just wanted something that M could eat and that he would be proud to share.
The pea pod tree was decorated with bell pepper, and I put a row of apple slices around the outside edge. I took the picture after I'd cut up the first apple. You'll just have to imagine the apples go all the way around. :) The covered bowl is macadamia nut butter. I can't even say if it was good or not because I didn't try it. It smelled really good, though. And the star and presents are cheese.
After school today all that was left was a handful of peas and some of the macadamia nut butter. I guess it was a hit.
