The Lorax: A Kid Lunch

We haven't seen the movie yet,  but the kids have read the book and seen the nonstop advertising.  So they recognize the character.  I can't take credit for coming up with the idea.  Although I didn't copy it exactly, this week's lunch idea is blatant theft.  You can see the original here.

For the Lorax, I used mini sandwich rounds and put mayo and turkey on them.  Then I cut his body, feet and hands out of cheddar cheese.  His eyes are jack cheese with a piece of raisin.  The mustache - holy crud, I just now realized I forgot to put his eyebrows on.  I even cut them out.  Good lord.  Anyway, I used jicama for his mustache and missing eyebrows.  The tree is celery and cucumber.  Around the rim is mango and oranges.

Here's The Girl's lunch on her plate:

Here's The Kid's:

I still can't believe I forgot the eyebrows.
Have a good weekend!
We're having a fire in the fire pit tonight!
