Play with Your Food

Do you like to play with your food? Then you’ll love this box lunch that looks like a game of tic-tac-toe!

First, place nine muffin cups or other small containers in your lunchbox in three rows of three. Have a grown-up help you fill each cup with a different food. Try mixed veggies, mashed potatoes, fruit slices, mac and cheese, meatballs or anything else you like.

Next, ask the adult to cut cucumber slices in O shapes and carrots into X shapes. Place these letters on your tic-tac-toe board.
