This lunch is intended to teach the kids about the fall of man. Read Genesis 3 or “The Sneaky Snake” story in the children’s bible. Talk about how the serpent deceived Eve into thinking she would be like God by eating of the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Create the tree by using a a trunk of a ham sandwich, cut into the shape of a “Y”. Use cucumbers for the greenery on top, and any red fruit you have on hand for the fruit that Eve picked. I used strawberries.
Next, create Eve by using four baby carrots, positioned with a torso and legs, and cut one in half or into fourths lengthwise to use for her arms. Create her head by placing a round cracker on top of the body. Add raisin eyes, a strawberry mouth, and shredded cheese for hair.
Finally, use blueberries to make the serpent in the tree. I put a tiny smiley face on him using the shredded cheese, because he was very glad to cause the woman to sin against God.
This lunch was one of my daughter’s favorites yet!
