Pink Pigs

Every week at Isabelle's preschool they have a theme, or rather colors/things they are learning about.  Every Thursday we have to dig through her closet and come up with clothing that matches that weeks color.  Orange was hard.
This week, they were learning about the colors: pink and gray, and making crafts with pigs and mice.  Wednesday was Isabelle's snack day, and her teacher has requested "healthy" snacks.  Because I am in the running for the Mother of the Year, I racked my brain for a fun, pink pig/ gray mouse themed snack. Do you know how easy it would have been to take pink pig cupcakes?  oh well.
This is what I came up with:

Pink Pig Snacks!

I found pre-sliced ham at Kroger (and yes, I do think it funny...pigs, ham.)  sliced a small horn of cheese and cut out circles just the right size for the snouts, attached the triangle shaped triscuits with "spray cheese", used black gel decorating frosting for the eyes and nostrils.

Cuter than I expected!

Where is that Mother of the Year award? hmm? Where is the trophy? Blue ribbon? Box of chocolates? Wine of the month club? Anything??
