Happy Birthday Eric Carle!

Today is Eric Carle's birthday!
We love Eric Carle's books! His books are timeless and even thought we've had some of them since Eliana was born we still read them five years later! And of course his artwork is absolutely gorgeous and one of a kind.

I was going to make a new Eric Carle themed lunch for Eliana today but I had a doctor's appointment this morning that ran over. It was supposed to be a 10:40 am but I guess they were running late and we didn't end up being done until 12pm! Needless to say when we got home we were starving! I had no creativity in me because I was hangry ;) (and those who know me.. .you don't mess with me what I am that hungry!)

So I'm sharing the two Eric Carle themed lunches we've made in the past AND I thought it would be awesome to share other works of food art too! At the bottom of this post you'll find a linky where you can link up your favorite Eric Carle inspired lunches and fun food! :) You don't need a blog, you could link up your instagram, or any other place, as long as you have a  URL that you can link up! :)

Last year I made Eliana this Very Hungry Caterpillar bento:
For this lunch Eliana had a sandwich topped with the Very Hungry Caterpillar! And for a cute easy detail I used a straw and made a hole through the strawberries-- because on Thursday the Very Hungry Caterpillar ate through four strawberries! For more details about this lunch (and a quick and easy snack!) see here.

I also made her this Very Busy Spider bento last year:
In her Easylunchbox she had a SunButter and honey sandwich, topped with the Very Busy Spider and raisin fly ontop of a yummy web! For more details on this lunch see here.

I'm sure we'll be making more Eric Carle inspired fun food soon to come! :)
