I was actually cutting wheat bricks to try and make a handbag (as you do!) when the ship’s shape just popped out.
I love these fun designs that just come out of nowhere and can be whipped up in a few minutes. The boys were of course very pleased at breakfast (aside from the birds which they thought should have looked “better”).
– 3 wheat bricks
– Seeds/nuts for the sea (I used pepitas (pumpkin seeds) and sunflower seeds)
– 4 raisins
– 2 dried dates (used to make the funnel and the birds)
– 1 dried apricot (for the cabin window)
1. Cut a sloping edge on two wheat bricks for the bow and the stern on the main part of the boat.
Cut a square piece from a wheat brick to make the cabin and place on top.
2. Put seeds, fruit or chopped nuts along the bottom for the ocean.
I also put some wheat brick crumbs over the join on the main part of the boat.
3. Add four raisins for portholes and I cut a dried date to make the funnel.
4. Add a cut piece of dried apricot for the cabin window.
I also squeezed a date into two roughly bird shapes and I liked them (even though the mini-chefs were critical).
5. I used a little yoghurt for some steam for the funnel and added long strands of dried coconut as wispy clouds.
Healthy, creative, fun food for kids big and small.
