Jingle Bells

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way!

It’s almost Christmas!
If you have older kids who will be home from school for winter break, and you are new to the creative lunches thing, here is a perfect one to make for them!
For this lunch, we will re-purpose those cookie cutters we’ve undoubtedly been using to make our cookies this season.

 

 
 

My cookie cutters are a little on the thin side, so I used them for one slice at a time.
Using whole wheat bread, we pressed the cookie cutter into each piece, then added our turkey and cheese.  That’s it!

 

Little Emma (age 2) loved pressing the cookie cutter into each piece of bread to help me!
Finally, we placed some holly around the top of the plate to make it look even more festive.
To make the bow, slice a strawberry in half so you have two triangles for the loops.  Slice the remaining portion into two thin rectangles for the ties, and add one last bit in the center to complete the bow.
Sweet, easy, healthy, and merry!
