Out of all the soccer camp lunches, this one was probably my favorite and the boy's too!
Because of camp, I didn't want anything too fussy with picks and pieces to remember, but I still wanted something a little bit fun. This monster face is extra easy to make, just a few quick cuts with kitchen scissors or a knife, plus a few edible features.
In this lunch, we have a ham and marble cheese monster sandwich on white-wheat bread. Just make your sandwich, then cut a zigzag mouth about 2/3 of the way down on the top piece of bread. My trick? I have a pair of kitchen scissors that I hide from everyone else in the house so they are reserved for food use only. It's much easier to cut with them than a knife. For the tongue, I just trimmed an extra bit of ham into the right shape and wrapped it under the bread, then I added a few boiled egg slices for eyes.
I added sliced strawberries and a peeled clementine orange in the box, then packed a bag of other snacks for on the go. Once again, I opted for individual items like granola bars, pretzels, Goldfish crackers, frozen yogurt tubes, frozen applesauce pouches, and a pack of fruit snacks for a treat. All of it gets eaten and I just remind him to always eat the yogurt at the first snack break since it's the only perishable item!
