Frugal & Fun Kids Food Ideas: Shapes
I try to make meal time fun for our boys. A simple and frugal way to let your kids have fun with their food and create their own little food masterpieces is to use cookie cutter shapes. Yes, it really is that simple and your kids will have such a grand time doing it.
Our one must-have accessory for this fun food idea is the 101 piece Wilton Cookie Cutter set which can be had for under $15. It will be the only set you ever need. You can purchase the set here: Wilton 101 Cookie Cutter Set
Some Fun Shapes Ideas For Food To Get You Started:
Car-shaped peanut butter & jelly sandwiches
Duck-shaped cheese bites. Use various types of cheeses & small shapes for this such as stars & hearts to make it even more fun
Animal-shaped grilled cheese sandwiches
Footbal- shaped ham & swiss sandwiches
Flower-shaped mini pizzas
There are also a variety of popular holiday-themed cookie cutters which would be great for all of the above ideas and whatever else you can come up with. We’d love to hear how you use your cookie cutters for something other than cookies.
