Hit of the Lunchroom ... Under the Sea Lunch Box

This year we have started public school and I knew there would be the option of hot lunches but having two kids and paying $2 a day per kid I knew would get spendy.  So I knew I had to make the lunches I make the boys look interesting and fun so they wouldn't be too disappointed when I said NO you will not be eating a hot lunch everyday at school.  Yes mom broke down and they are allowed a hot lunch from the lunch lady every Friday.  BUT the other days will be me making their lunches.

Thank God for Pinterest and all of the great ideas!  I saw a picture for a submarine sandwich, just a picture so sorry if someone came up with this idea and I'm not giving them credit.




I made 2 versions of this Under the Sea / Fish Lunch Box

What you Need:
Hot Dog Bun
Mayonnaise
Mustard
Lunch Meat
Cheese
Any Veggies if you want
Straw
Scissors

Fixings:
Gold Fish
Star Crackers (Safeway Brand)
Hard Boiled Egg
Fish Egg Mold (bought on ebay)
Cheese
Fruit

For the sub sandwich you take a hot dog bun add meat cheese and any veggies if you want.  I put mayonnaise and mustard on the bun.  I took a straw took a measurement to see how long it should be and cut it off and added it into the front of the sandwich to look like a sub.  I added gold fish and star crackers.  I also used a cheese slice to cut a fish shape with a cookie cutter.  I found these really cool egg molds on Ebay that you hardboil an egg peel while hot (watch your fingers) and put right into the mold and close and then put in your fridge.  One I put in some cut up melon and the other I put some carrots.  I put the crackers in silicone cupcake molds.  I used Easy Lunch Boxes, I did a review a while back but just picked up another 3 off Amazon.

Fish Egg Mold (Bought on Ebay)
The coolest item and so EASY
BOTH boys love the hard boil Eggs in their lunches!
