Small Child recently celebrated ‘Fairy Tale Day’ at school, which involved dressing up for the day as a fairy tale character. Small Child decided to dress up as a prince – specifically Prince Charming, from Cinderella. We love dressing up days at school – it’s so much fun seeing all the children arriving in their costumes, trying to guess what each other has chosen to dress up as, and the teachers always make such a great effort as well. From my point of view, it’s always a great excuse for a themed lunch too (as if I need an excuse!). On this occasion, a Cinderella themed lunch was definitely called for!
In this lunch Small Child had a crown shaped ham sandwich, on wholemeal bread, to represent his character of Prince Charming. On the side he had cucumber slices and carrot stars, one of which I turned into the fairy godmother’s wand by adding a polka dot pick. He had a pile of red grapes and a clementine, for the pumpkin coach. I added a couple of mouse picks to the grapes represent the coachmen. He also had a pot of organic strawberry yoghurt, with a frozen yoghurt flower to decorate.
Here are a few details from the lunch. I made the crown sandwich by cutting the sandwich into a crown shape, adding one of the crusts to the top and securing it with gemstone food picks. The pumpkin coach was made by peeling a clementine, then adding ‘wheels’ made from halved red grapes stuck on with plastic food picks. I finished it off with a leaf pick to make it look a little more pumpkin like.
