Pear's a pretty big fan of all things bean, so we packed her some Frankenstein pasta with black beans for hair and smile and chick peas for eyes! We used a natural food dye we purchased at a local health foods store to give our noodles a green hue. Then we threw some chocolate chips into some strawberry slices for some really red-eye berries!
For Pear's last Halloween-themed lunch, I used a pumpkin-shaped cookie cutter for the bread and then my exacto knife (originally purchased to cut through fondant) to cut out the eyes and mouth. Surprisingly easy AND ridiculously cute. We cut off the ends of a banana (don't worry her bubby ate the middle part!) and added some mini Enjoy Life chocolate chips to bring the ghost nanas to life.
I love love love seeing the cute things parents do with their children's food. Not only does it look good, but it tastes good too. Which, in any kids eyes, is a win-win!
