Packed A a snail's lunch yesterday. She informed me several months ago (while making her hands into a snail shape) that "snail" in Japanese is "katatsumuri"! This is one of her favorite Japanese words for some reason. She loved this lunch and the box came home empty (except for the curly lettuce which she informed me she didn't want to eat. Goofy kid.
A's snails are made of Pizza Pinwheels and cheese dogs with the faces cut in before cooking using the blunt end of a cocktail pick for the eyes and a cool curved exacto-knife style tool I got from the Daiso. They're held together at the base with cocktail picks (not pictured). The girl snail is wearing a bow pick and the boy (who she informed me must be daddy because he is "the only boy") has a couple of antennae that I jimmied up from a couple of flag picks (just cut the flags off of them and voila!)
Also included in her snail lunch was a mikan, some lightly boiled broccoli florets, edamame picks, a few carrot flowers and an apple jelly.
