Tomorrow is a big day for my son’s kindergarten class as the letters Q & U tie the knot in a cute ceremony that bonds the two letters together to make the “kwa” sound. This is a much anticipated event for the kindergarteners and because I took on the roll as class party planner this year I am busy pulling together fun activities for tomorrow’s celebration. I have several stations planned where the kids will get to do a variety of “Q & U” activities along with some Valentine’s Day crafts. The kids will make bookmarks with a poem about the letters Q & U on them, decorate letters, go on a scavenger hunt to look for words that start with Q & U, and make paper mice at the “QUiet as a mouse” station. Over the weekend as I was organizing the supplies I had my kids make up a few of the crafts to make sure they were doable. Both of the boys really liked the mouse craft so I thought it would be fun to make a heart-shaped mouse lunch in honor of tomorrow’s celebration!
This lunch includes: peanut butter mouse sandwich with white american cheese accents, celery and peanut butter (if nut allergies are a concern you might try sunbutter), grapes, cottage cheese, almond flour chocolate chip cookie, dark chocolate squares
Here’s the little craft that inspired the lunch.
