Monkey Lunch

A fun monkey lunch for Amy. Sorry for the horrendous photo. Amy was about to run out the door to go to camp and I was just trying to snap a really quick photo. Her tooth is very wiggly, so I made her pudding as it's very soft. When I grabbed a mini cup to put in some sprinkles it was the little monkey that caught my eye, so I decided to make it a monkey themed lunch. I didn't plan this out very well for a spur of the moment lunch as it took a little more time than I had in the morning - but it's just so cute it was worth the rush.

strawberries, pineapple, cantaloupe
monkey sandwich - ham with cheese,  fruit leather and candy eye features

I can't take any credit for the sandwich design -- I saw it ages ago and knew that I wanted to try it one day.When I thought about making a monkey theme it came to mind immediately. Here is the fabulous original. It was made by Lise of Veggie Bento.  She has so many cute ideas. This is another favourite  that she has made: Earth Day Tree Hugger.

These are the cutters that I used to make the Monkey sandwich.
