Today we are celebrating the Chinese New Year! It is the year of the dragon! I thought it would be fun to create a dragon lunch for JDaniel. Rather than make a scary dragon I made a fun dragon for his lunch. After sharing the lunch I made I will share some fun Chinese New Year dragon craft ideas you will just love.
Chinese Dragon Snack
We had such fun dyeing beige tortilla neon green and cutting them out with cookie cutters for this meal. If you prefer you can create the dragon using a spinach tortilla. It would eliminate the need to dye the beige tortilla and give your kids a vegetable serving too.
The dragon has a ham inner mouth and carrot tongue.The dragon’s eyes are black olives with corn pupils. I am not sure most dragons have crests on their heads, but this one has an American cheese crest.
Yes, that makes this ham and cheese sandwich with a few vegetables. JDaniel loves ham and cheese right now. This was a fun way to serve him some of his favorite foods.
Since New Year’s is usually celebrated with fireworks, I gave JDaniel red grape, red strawberry, and red grape tomato fireworks to have with his dragon.
