Today on Dad Does Lunch, our resident lunchbox visionary, Beau Coffron, reminds us how much fun food can be when it’s on a stick. Follow his simple step-by-step instructions to bring that fun straight to your kids’ lunchbox and a smile to their faces with this DIY lunch on a stick!
A few small pieces of lettuce
2 hard boiled eggs
2 snap peas
2 wooden kabob sticks
1 small dinner roll
1 grape tomato
1 slice of cantaloupe
1 black olive
baby carrot sticks
3 small cheese sticks
3 slices of salami
Place lettuce in the main compartment of the lunchbox as a background.
Slide a peeled hardboiled egg onto a wooden kabob stick.
Top the kabob with a snap pea.
Repeat with another egg and snap pea on another kabob stick.
Place the two kabob sticks side by side, vertically, on top of the lettuce.
Set a small dinner roll in between the two kabob sticks.
Take a grape tomato and push one side of a toothpick into the grape tomato, using the other side of the toothpick to attach it to the top of the dinner roll.
Place a slice of cantaloupe below the dinner roll.
Attach a black olive to each hardboiled egg using a toothpick.
Fill the smallest compartment of the lunchbox with carrot sticks and small pickles.
Fill the last compartment halfway with pretzel sticks.
For the other half of the last compartment, wrap three small cheese sticks with salami and attach them together with a toothpick.
Finish by placing the salami and cheese sticks on top of the pretzel sticks.
