Brrrrr….. It’s cold in here!

This week has been filled with lots of “chilly” lunches, so I of course wanted to keep it going for today. Which in a way is kind of strange since it really isn’t even winter yet! :) Oh well, no worries!
My sweet tiny princess K is well into her second year of Daisy Girl Scouts! ((LOVE)) Her fall product sales included the cutest little dark chocolate mint penguins. I knew I HAD to have these to add as a special treat in the princess’s lunches every once in a while.

Last night while organizing some of my lunch making supplies, a brilliant idea popped into my head! Okay, so maybe not brilliant, but I thought it was pretty clever, so I grabbed my cube it Funbites tool and a couple of EasyLunchboxes and got to work! At first my idea seemed to not work out that great. My sweet husband told me I was crazy and that my idea looked nothing like what I wanted it to. He went to bed. I proved him wrong. ;)

Surely you can see that this is an igloo sandwich…..


Packed in EasyLunchboxes, both princesses received the same lunch today, except K had cheese and A didn’t. Their lunches were a bit smaller than normal since in order to make the igloo sandwich they each got more than just one. I’d say about 1.5 each. To make the igloo sandwich I simply just used my funbites cube it. I had to get a bit tricky with the rounded top by first cutting a circle sandwich, then I cut it in half, (one for each princess) and finally I placed the cube over top just right and cut down. Cute, right? My husband is eating his words this morning. ;) They also each received a mint chocolate penguin peeking out of the igloo, standing on a bed of freshly fallen marshmallow snow, a little “snow” on the side, some vanilla yogurt with snowflake sprinkles, (in our awesome leak proof EasyLunchbox mini dippers) last, but not least they each got a few holiday shaped gold fish crackers. Wish I would have had two of the fish shaped silicone cups. That will teach me to not order two of everything next time I place an order at All Things For Sale.  I even included one fish sitting outside of the penguin’s igloo so that he could have “lunch” before he was lunch! :D
Here is tiny princess A’s lunch with a  Lunchbox Love note and the lid on her mini dipper. I chose the blue lid cause I thought it quite resembled an ice cube. ;)


Some things I used to make these lunches…
