Animal Lunches for World Animal Day

Today is World Animal Day! We are celebrating with some animal themed lunches and a blog hop. Click the button at the bottom of the post to hop along to the next animal themed lunch.

Amy has a squirrel
vanilla pudding with sprinkles in the mini cup, red grapes & cantaloupe, carrot sticks & cucumbers
little birdie friend cut out of fruit leather, squirrel shaped sandwich
I fully intended on putting chocolate sprinkles on top of that peanut butter for the tail but when I looked in the cupboard we didn't have any left. Doh!

Rose has butterflies
All of the food is the same just a different the theme 

I saw the idea of putting sprinkles in a cutout on a couple of other bento blogs this past week including: Lunches Fit For a Kid, and Meet The Dubiens. It's so easy to do for a little something special.

Heidi has a crab sandwich to eat when she gets home from school - packed in her EasyLunchboxes
Heidi has the same lunch as well -- her vanilla pudding is in that mini dipper cup made by EasyLunchboxes. It's my first time trying it out. More on these soon!

So what IS World Animal Day?

World Animal Day was started in 1931 at a convention of ecologists in Florence as a way of highlighting the plight of endangered species. October 4 was chosen as World Animal Day as it is the Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.
Since then, World Animal Day has become a day for remembering and paying tribute to all animals and the people who love and respect them. It's celebrated in different ways in every country, with no regard to nationality, religion, faith or political ideology.
Are you doing anything to commemorate World Animal Day? If you go to their website you might find an event in your area to attend.

BEFORE you do that, don't forget the blog hop -- next up is Keeley McGuire click the button in each post to continue along the hop to see more fun animal themed lunches. We all picked our animal ahead of time so each one will be a different animal. My choice was the squirrel. The others I made were a bonus :)
