Egg bunnies

We used another idea from Little Nummies today for our lunch. These simple hard-boiled egg bunnies made for a happy meal!

Here are the ingredients we used:

Body and ears - Hard-boiled egg (slice the bottom off so that the egg sits more evenly, then cut the bottom in half and use for the ears - attach ears with small pieces of spaghetti)
Eyes - pieces of oats from homemade granola
Nose - small piece of carrot
Mouth - apple peel
Whiskers - brown rice spaghetti noodles
Feet - baby carrots (attach to body with spaghetti noodles)

Easter Bunny Lunch Idea

I've been enjoying the adorable food ideas from Little Nummies, a blog that presents simple but creative recipes using stuff you'd normally have on hand (without having to run to the store for special ingredients!).

When I saw the post about Easter Bunny faces for lunch, I had to try it for my boys. Here's how ours turned out! So cute!

These are the ingredients I used:

Face - slice of brown rice bread
Ears - hard-boiled egg cut in half, yolks removed (I also dyed them with beet juice so they had a pinkish hue to them)
Eyes - cream cheese for the whites, and grain-sweetened chocolate chips for the pupils
Nose - hard-boiled egg yolk
Mouth - raw beet slice
Teeth -Tillamook pepperjack cheese
Whiskers - Tillamook cheddar cheese
