Buses & Bentos

Yesterday was my daughter's turn to bring snack to Kindergarten. When I've helped out at the school several of the kids have asked when I was going to make a fun lunch for them, so I decided they needed a fun snack. Since they've been talking about shapes I found this hands-on snack that was perfect!
I spread whipped cream cheese (that I colored with yellow food coloring) on a cracker and put it on a mini paper plate along with a few piece of Chex cereal and 2 mini Oreos. The kids got to put on the windows & wheels and then they gobbled it all up. I didn't think that all would like the cream cheese, but no one batted an eye at it. We ended snack with singing The Wheels on the Bus.

After school my daughter asked to play with Play-Do and she created this cute bento!
