Bunny Lunches March 25th - 27th

Boogs had a short school week due to Easter weekend. This week he took three bunny lunches to school. Boogs' lunches are inspired by the books we read at bedtime the previous evening. Each night, Boogs reads one book to me and I read a book or a chapter of a book to him. I usually post his lunches once a week.

The Biggest Easter Basket Ever by Steven Kroll
Boogs has enjoyed the other Steven Kroll books featuring Clayton and Desmond. In this book, the mice work together to create the biggest and best Easter basket for the contest. They discover that teamwork makes big jobs easier. Easter baskets in an ELB lunchbox: pb&j basket sandwich made with my Funbites tool, marshmallow bunnies, cheese Easter eggs, cheese stick, dried apricot & raisin eggs basket, olive and tomato eggs baskets.

The Easter Bunny Is Missing by Steve Metzger
The animals in the forest discover that the Easter Bunny is missing. Each animal thinks they would be the best one to hide eggs on Easter morning. None of the other animals are quite right for the job. Will the Easter Bunny be found in time? In the ELB lunchbox: Easter Bunny drawn on cheese, bunny Peeps, salad, and pineapple with a Stampin Up bunny on top. This lunch took less than 15 minutes to make. I added it to Bentos on the Bayou 15 Minute Linky Party.

The Case of the Puzzling Possum by Cynthia Rylant

This is another mystery for Jack and Bunny to solve, it has nothing to do with Easter. Bunny and Jack must help the music store owner find out who keeps stealing and then putting back a trombone. They find several clues at the crime scene - straw and mud. These clues lead them to the Hayride where the Big Brass Band is playing. Working together, Jack and Bunny solve the case. In the Laptop lunchbox: mango haybales, Zbar muddy clue, marshmallow with Jack Racoon drawing and cowboy hat pick, boiled egg bunny, spinach, carrots, and hummus.

Here is a round-up of some bunny lunches I have shared in the past. Click the pictures to get the details:
