Last week I was making lunch plates for the younger kids with hard boiled egg, turkey, cheese, and apple slices. As I was looking at the lunch plate I thought, “I could be a super mom and arrange these foods into a silly face!”

I earned my fun mom points for that day. The silly face lunch plates were a big hit!

You know what that means, right?

Everyday the kids request silly face lunch plates. 🙂



Here’s what I made the kids for lunch yesterday. My older boys where working outside with their dad on a project so I just had the little ones to get lunch for.

I used hard boiled eggs for the eyes and nose, cheese for hair or mouth, and champagne grapes for the mouth or hair.  There are no leftovers when I make silly face plates for lunch!

It’s also fun because the kids literally giggle the entire time they eat. They like to recreate the faces and make it a silly time.

This quick and healthy lunch idea is great for homeschool lunches. It’s easy on mom and the kids can even design their own plates.

Take a quick inventory on what you have in the refrigerator. I bet you have many items to pull together some fun silly face plates.
