Oh me, oh my, oh dinosaurs, for Ben

I'm sure I've done variations on the dinosaur theme before, but we do like our dinosaurs around here.

We've been switching bookcases around--chapter books to Faith's room, early reader books to Ben's, toddler & board books packed away, so there have been lots of fun dino reads while we've been moving things. I'm not entirely sure I want to put the Sandra Boynton books away, *I* like those ones!

Mr. Ben has a dinosaur sandwich--turkey, cheese on Nature's Own Honey 7-Grain bread. The dual dino cutter was from a regular store, not specialty, maybe Walmart or Target? The dollar stores sometimes have them too.

Anyhow, back to the dino. He's got cheddar cheese spots, a white cheddar eye with a bit of cucumber to make him see. ;o) We've got carrots, mostly to hold the top dino in place, grapes with bone picks, and some teddy bear graham crackers because I need to bake.

I still think he's quite the cute prehistoric creature.


  1. We still have Sandra Boynton on our shelves! But Not the Hippopotomus is and always will be my favorite book :D It's good to keep those around for fun!

    Dino sandwiches look delicious! :D

  2. The dinosaurs are very cute - and I love the little bone picks!

  3. Sweet! Bone picks are in keeping with the theme nicely!

  4. Hi Shannon! I have a question and I apologize if it's been asked before, but how do you keep the tiny little pieces from falling off in transit?

    And I don't have a blog (yet) can I still post my pics to your What's for Lunch Wednesdays? Thanks and have a great day

  5. Very cute lunch! :D


  6. @Joanie, I usually use teeny tiny dots of cream cheese to stick things in place, just the tip of a tooth pick worth, it kind of acts as a glue. :o)
