My family loves elephants. Before we even had children, my husband and I would "adopt" an animal at the zoo, our sponsorship helping aid programs and projects at the zoo. We always chose the elephants!
When we moved across the country to our new (and current home) the first piece of artwork we purchased for our house was elephant art. Elephant art being actual artwork painted by an elephant. Our specific piece was painted by Kiba, from the Nashville Zoo. Elephants are always close to our hearts. :)
The elephant themed lunch my little girl enjoyed earlier this week.
A jelly sandwich on whole grain bread, shaped into mommy & baby elephants with The Lunch Punch elephant sandwich cutter from the "Critter Cutters" set. Eyes are sprinkles.
Around the sandwich is a piece of fruit leather cut into an elephant shape (from a set of cookie cutters by Williams-Sonoma), a piece of heart-shaped fruit leather (because we heart elephants, of course!), some cheddar cheese elephants, and lastly, a little dish of peanuts. Because elephants and peanuts go together...well, like peanut butter and jelly! ;-)
In the two smaller sections of this EasyLunchboxes container is an elephant-shaped boiled egg (shaped using this elephant onigiri shaper from JList) and some strawberries and grapes with a gratuitous elephant pick added for decoration.
This lunch was a big, BIG, hit with my girl. As evidenced by the exuberant elephant sounds she trumpeted throughout the entire meal. LOL :)
