Easy Teddy Bear Toast lunchbox idea! Cute with peanut butter or chocolate hazelnut spread.
I can’t believe my baby is starting pre-school next week! It’s only two days a week at our church, but I swear if I blink too long it’s going to be Kindergarten! She is beyond excited to go and be a “big girl” like her sister; she has been carting around a backpack full of
junk necessities all summer. She absolutely loves going to church and asks if we can go every day, so I can only imagine how excited she is going to be about school after she actually starts going.
Since she will be in a familiar room, I’m not too worried about her transitioning to the new place. The one thing I’m nervous about is lunchtime. She loves choices and loves to take her time while eating. I know she will have help from her teachers, but she’s obviously never had to open her own lunch or anything like that. These past few weeks leading up to the big day we have been “practicing” by using our lunch boxes at home. I’ve been stocking up on goodies to make her lunches fun and hopefully make things easier for her. I grabbed a few packs of Wet Ones® Singles last time I was at Target to tuck away in her lunchbox. (On sale too, score!) I love that Wet Ones® clean messy hands and kill 99.99% of germs, and thanks to their Aloe formula, they won’t dry or irritate skin like hand sanitizers can. They’re also hypoallergenic.
Sophia is my kid that doesn’t like to have her hands dirty. She got on board with using utensils early in the game because she didn’t like picking up food with her fingers. She does a great job wiping her own face and hands when she’s done, so that’s one aspect I’m not too worried about. I’m more concerned with getting her to eat all the food I pack! Which is one reason I’m trying to comes up with “fun” lunchbox ideas for her to enjoy. She is obsessed with the movie Brave, which she calls “Bears”, and loves when I make these Teddy Bear Toast.
She prefers hers with peanut butter, while big sister likes her toasted with chocolate hazelnut spread. Sophia loves the bananas but doesn’t eat the blueberries, while Isabella loves the blueberries and won’t eat the bananas. HA!
There’s no real “recipe” to make the Teddy Bear Toast: just slather peanut butter (or another nut butter or chocolate hazelnut spread) on a piece of bread (toasted or not) and top with bananas for ears and a nose and blueberries for eyes.
