A Crabby Lunch


We made this cute crab lunch using 2 pieces of bread, peanut butter, strawberry jelly, 1 red apple, 1 large marshmallow, and 5 raisins.

We cut our bread into a circle. We spread peanut butter in between the bread. Spread the jelly on the outside. Cut the apple in half and cut that half in another half. Cut out a V shape to make the claw. Save the scraps for the little legs and arms. Cut the large marshmallow in half and place those on the top for the eyes. Put on the raisins for the eyes and mouth. Cut the scraps in 3 strips to make the legs and cut off two pieces to make the arms. We wanted to make use of the whole apple. 1 apple will make 2 of these lunches.
