You’ll Need:

  • blue gelatin
  • 1 gummy bear
  • 1 ring-shaped gummy
  • oval or circle-shaped cookie cutter
  • 2 slices of bread
  • heart-shaped cookie cutter
  • 1 slice of cheese
  • prepared tuna fish
  • small circle of cheese
  • blueberries
  • 1 toothpick
  • graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 snap peas
  • 1 floret of broccoli

Directions:

  1. Prepare blue gelatin according to the directions on the box.
  2. Let the gelatin set in a small compartment of the lunchbox.
  3. Take a gummy bear and insert it into the middle of a ring-shaped gummy candy and set the gummy bear wearing a flotation device on top of the blue gelatin.
  4. Use an oval or circle-shaped cookie cutter to cut a round shape from the middle of a slice of bread.
  5. Repeat with another slice of bread.
  6. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter on a slice of cheese to cut three heart-shaped pieces of cheese.
  7. Spoon some tuna onto the top of one of the slices of bread.
  8. Place the three heart-shaped pieces of cheese onto the edges of the open-faced tuna sandwich to make the lips, top fin and back fin of the fish-shaped sandwich.
  9. Top the sandwich with the other circle-shaped slice of bread.
  10. Place the fish-shaped sandwich into the largest compartment of the lunchbox.
  11. Pierce a small circle of cheese and a blueberry with a toothpick and attach it to the top slice of bread to form the eye of the fish.
  12. Drop blueberries all around the fish sandwich to make it look like the fish is in water.
  13. In the last compartment, use graham cracker crumbs to make sand.
  14. Cut three snap peas into the shape of a turtle head and fins.
  15. Arrange on top of the sand, placing a floret of broccoli on top of the snap peas to form the turtle’s shell.
  16. Enjoy an under the sea lunch!
