Hinamatsuri Pizza Craft and Toast

Girls Day Pizza

This year for Hinamatsuri (Girls Day) I made pizza, toast and mason jars filled with candy. Even if you can’t get traditional sweets you can make your own cute gift. My Girl’s Day label template is at the end of this post.

I made these Emperor and Empress Pizzas with my 16 year old niece. Actually I was the mean Aunt who came up with the idea but gave my niece an almost impossible task of making it. But I think that she did a great job and they turned out cute.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Left Side: Emperor (pizza crust, mozzarella and orange cheddar cheese, spinach, carrot [baton]), Empress (pizza crust, mozzarella, tomato sauce, spinach, carrot [fan])

Top Right: Strawberries

Bottom Right: Popcorn, mint M&M’s

Girls Day Toast

I made this Hinamatsuri themed toast by writing with chocolate. I was inspired by this.

Hinamatsuri Candy Gift

I made these little snacks for my two Japanese language students (both girls are in high school). Since I am in the United States and do not have easy access to Hinamatsuri candy, I used mini mint candy in three colors. Hinamatsuri (Girl’s Day) colors are pink, white and green but I used pink, yellow and green. I put a layer of green candy on the bottom, yellow in the middle and pink on top. The label has the date of Hinamatsuri (March 3) and Hinamatsuri written in Japanese. It also includes clip art of the emperor and empresses.
