The Kissing Hand

This lunch was inspired by the book The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn. I'm not sure it's one of the prettiest lunches I've made. But, I'm hoping it means a lot to the girls when they open it at lunch time.

PB&J "Kissing Hand", Babybel cheese with heart cutout, carrots and cucumber slices with ranch (the ranch cup is under the cheese), strawberry hearts and a couple of grapes.

Snack: Cheese bunnies, a couple yogurt pretzels (for stabilization) and an "I Love You" message on a piece of fruit leather.


  1. Ok, I have a problem...The more I look at this picture, the more it's bothering me that the "kiss" (heart) is on the wrong side. It's supposed to be on what would be the palm of the hand. I'm going to have to change it. I have a problem, don't I?

  2. Love it and I'm sure they will too!! :)

  3. That's so sweet Caren. Vicki's right - they'll love it.

  4. LOL at having to flip the hand! I think this is sweet. :)

  5. I love it!!! What's funny is I have a leftie kiddo and a leftie husband, so I didn't think of it as being on the back of a "right" hand.... I just automatically assumed it was the palm of the left hand. (Does that mean I have a problem, since it's on the right in the box? haha)
    VERY cute.
