Where Would You Hide A Gummi Spider?

with 5 comments

Yogurt’s a pretty good place to hide an arachnid.  Across from the red guy is ham on herb bread, accompanied by Valencia oranges (on a stick — an arrangement that’s becoming very popular with the second grade Tiffin child.  I keep wondering if maybe he’s using those toothpicks to swordfight.)  And did you know that those Nilla Wafers you ate when you were a child now come in a mini size?  For a long time, I didn’t put cookies or sweets in the boys’ lunches.  And then I realized, a little bit goes a long way. So now I do.  I’ve just got to start adding some veg.

  1. I don’t know about swordfighting – but it’s Halloween. Have you ruled out a little practical voodoo? Especially if they have a mom who hides spiders in the yoghurt 🙂

  2. Well, there’s this kid in his second grade class he really, really doesn’t like….

  3. You could also use pretzel sticks for a skewer, but I’m not sure how the Tiniest Tiffin would like his sugars and salts mixed.

    On the other hand, it would go great with cheese cubes.

  4. Sue, that’s a really fabulous idea. I hadn’t thought about pretzel sticks. Not so good for voodoo though!

  5. Nice littel lunch there. And a cookie every now and then is OK! I mean if they are eating their fruit. Soeren always does get a treat, because I know his first passion is fruit and eats plenty of it during the whole day!
