Use Alphabet Stamps to create sweet messages on your kids lunches! They will be so excited to see your fun messages, and you can remind them they will do great on any test!
I’m taking a quick break from all the Halloween posts to share a fun concept I came up with today – embossed food made using alphabet stamps. I was asked by Horizon Organic to come up with a fun lunch for kids to share on their Pinterest page and while I was playing around in the kitchen this morning I discovered a new use for alphabet stone stamps. Those of you who are regular readers have seen them used on my Cookies ‘n Cream Tombstones, and my Sweet Serenity Stones and I just knew I’d find many other uses for them. I tried them out on a number of food stuffs and found they worked great on cheese, bread, and tortillas.
I always thought it was nice for a child to open his or her lunchbox to find a sweet message inside. Now you can leave that message right on the food. So whether you want to tell them “good luck” on an exam, or to “have a nice day”, or anything at all, it’s easy to do using the stamps.
Just simply press the stamps into the food to create your special lunch box messages. If using a tortilla to make a wrap, you’ll need to press the stamps in a line about 1/4th of the way from one edge. Turn it over and fill. Start rolling it up at the end opposite the message. Your message will end up on the outside of your wrap.
Stamping bread is super easy and it looks even better toasted. When you work with the cheese slices you need to be gentle. Too much pressure and you will actually cut the letters out of the cheese.
Go, start stamping your food and be sure to send me pictures of what you find to stamp. I’d love to know what stamped foods end up in your child’s lunch box.
