I have a bit of a backlog of unshared lunches in my archives, so today I'm going to share several Star Wars themed packed lunch ideas. Small Child absolutely loves Star Wars, and often requests that I make his lunch with a Star Wars theme. He's always really happy when I agree, and usually gets involved in helping me to make the lunch too. I'm sharing three lunches in this post, the first two he helped me with, the last he made completely by himself.
In the first lunch, which was packed in our Yumbox Panino, Small Child had bread sticks, slices of roast beef, which he rolled and pushed through Star Wars themed cupcake rings and a Babybel cheese, on which I roughly carved a Star Wars S. On the side I packed some cucumber slices, a mini red pepper, which I cut in half and deseeded and some black grapes, which I topped with another Star Wars cupcake ring. I popped some Organix fruit stars in the dip well and Small Child added some lightsaber picks to finish it off.
In the second lunch, which we packed in our Polar Gear bento box, Small Child had a selection of crackers, some roast chicken slices, which he again rolled up and popped secured with Star Wars cupcake rings, raw carrot sticks, sugar snap peas and a mini Babybel cheese, which he decorated by cutting a star from the wax using a mini bento cutter. For dessert he had a plum, which I stoned and cut into slices, and some red grapes, some of which Small Child skewered on lightsaber picks. I also used square silicone cups to help separate some of the foods in this lunch and add a little extra colour.
The final lunch was packed by Small Child entirely by himself, in his Laptop Lunches bento box. In this lunch he packed cheese and marmite sandwiches, which he liberally decorated with Star Wars cupcake rings and lightsaber picks. On the side he packed red pepper and raw carrot sticks (which he peeled and sliced himself, under my supervision), a sliced plum and red grapes, which he topped with more cupcake rings. We found a yoghurt tube in the freezer so popped that in to the lunch box as well.
Small Child enjoyed all of his Star Wars lunches, and I'm sure there will be many more to come in the future!
