Last week Belle had the honor of being "Star of the Week". To a first grader, this is the end all be all. So I took the extra minute (ok many, many minutes) to sprinkle her lunch with stars all week long. I only needed to prepare 4 lunches instead of 5 due to the holiday break on Monday.
Day1: A large star badge graced the top of her lunch.
Day 2: Star cut outs on the top of her PBJ sandwich.
Day 3: Today we took it up a notch with star shaped strawberries & a star burst sandwich (or flower depending upon your interpretation).
Day 4: The grand finale featured mini star sandwiches, star shaped apples & peppermint dipped star pretzels (I stumbled upon these at the grocery store…Christmas clearance).
I hope when Belle opened her lunch & saw these little tokens of love, she knew that we were just as excited for "Star of the Week" as she was.
