Today as part of our 50 Summer Activities, I have Robin Hood themed food. We read the book, watched the BBC Robin Hood TV show and ate bento lunches. I used vintage cookie cutters to make sandwiches and crackers and I also made a mashed potato and cheese wanted poster.
Left Side: Maid Marion, Castle, and Alan A Dale – peanut butter sandwiches on wheat bread (when using cookie cutters with sandwiches it is best to cut the bread separately then make the sandwich)
Top Right: Green beans
Bottom Right: Assorted melon
My nephews don’t like sandwiches for lunch and I wanted to use the Robin Hood cookie cutters so I made some homemade crackers. You can see some of the vintage cookie cutters in the photo.
Left Side: Castle, Crusader, Robin Hood homemade crackers with pepper jack cheese
Top Right: Gold – Rolos (I bought a small package and did not realize they were not individually wrapped so I cut the wrapper to individually wrap a few pieces)
Bottom Right: Deer (cut with cookie cutter) in forest – melon, kiwi
This one is a little goofy but my nephew requested his Robin Hood food have a mustache. It was a struggle but this is what I created (his younger brother helped). I was feeling a little mischievous with the arrow in the kiwi and did not put it in the center. My younger nephew told me it should have been in the center since Robin Hood was a perfect shot and he moved it (but after I already took the photo).
Left Side: Wanted Poster lettering – carrot, white Cheddar mashed potatoes cut with mini letter cutters, Robin Hood – orange and white cheddar, food marker, spinach, oval cookie cutter, mini mustache cookie cutter
Top Right: Gold – Ferrero Rocher chocolate
Bottom Right: Raspberries, kiwi, arrow pick made from card stock, tape and a toothpick
These are fantastic and creative lunches! I LOVE Robin Hood and the 3rd lunch is so cute, puts a smile on my face! 🙂
