|Puzzle Buzz by Highlights|
Boogs has been a fan of mazes since he was 2-years-old and saw a Curious George episode about a corn maze. He is funny because he does not like to write in his puzzle or maze books. He usually traces or circles things with his finger so he can do them over and over again. He is having a good time with Puzzle Buzz. I had fun making this lunch with the Lunch Punch Match & Munch cutters. In the lunchbox: puzzle pieces of homemade bread, cheese, & salami, cantaloupe puzzle pieces with blueberries, yogurt, and a broccoli maze in ranch dressing.
|Brother Wolf by Harriet Peck Taylor|
This book is based on a Seneca Indian Tale. It explains how wolf gave birds their painted feathers. Boogs enjoys these kinds of tales. He has even made up some of his own. Boogs' tale of how the sting ray became flat and electric still makes me smile. Today's lunch is an example of a lunchbox fail. The other side of Boogs' sandwich has a very badly drawn wolf on it. I decided to turn it face down and cut it in half. I spent so much time on it that I did not get a chance to make any birds. Boogs came in and looked at his lunch and said, "Oh no! Are you just making me a regular lunch today?" So we compromised on a mostly regular lunch with a wolf marshmallow. In the lunchbox: wolf marshmallow, raisins, dried apricot, carrots, pirates booty, grilled ham & cheese english muffin.
