Kids Nursery Rhyme: Humpty Dumpty

I thought a Nursery Rhyme week would be fun!!

I know there’s nothing that says Humpty is an egg, but let’s just go with it!!
This lunch is super fun, not to mention healthy!!!


~ Egg ~ Cheese ~ Hotdog ~ Tomato ~
~ Green Beans ~ Celery Leaves ~ Peas ~ Cucumber ~

{ Of course this is before the fall!! }

Take sliced cheese out and cut it in half.  I used the plastic piece from inside a helium balloon to cut out the ovals for more dimension in the wall.  {Utilize what you have!!} Take a few ovals out and cut them in half to create the birds. I didn’t cut the boiled egg in half, just cut the back off to create a flat surface. Use dried spaghetti to stick fresh green beans into the egg for the arms and legs. A hallowed out cherry tomato for his hat and a piece of cucumber on top for whimsy.  I used pea halves for his eyes and a sliver of cucumber skin for his mouth. Use tiny pieces of cheese remnants for a bow tie. Celery leaves for the foliage.  Cut tiny triangles out of hotdog slices to create the flower look. Place halved cucumber slices on end for the clouds.

You probably don’t believe me, but my girls ate ALL of it.  Even the celery leaves!!
I was shocked!!

See what Little Nummies can do for a child’s palate? 🙂

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall;
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
All the King’s horses, and all the King’s men;
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

Kinda morbid if you ask me, but aren’t all the nursery rhymes a little crazy? 🙂
