Food Ideas for a Jungle Book Party
Your small guests will likely have big appetites. Here are some fun ideas for keeping them fed and happy while sticking with your Jungle Book theme.
Kaa Snake Sandwich
This amazing sandwich was made from two loaves of French bread cut at the bias and turned in such a way as to form the body of a slithering snake. The meat and cheese were added to the sandwich, while the rest of the topping options were cut and displayed alongside the snake in small serving dishes for the guests to build their own sub sandwich. A cucumber slice was cut to resemble the tongue of snake and placed in the front end piece, and black olives were used to create eyes for the snake. Super cute idea the kids will love! Place your submarine sandwich snake on a surface with a green plastic table cloth over it so it looks as if the snake is slithering through the grass. Get more ideas from Events to Celebrate.
Jungle Fresh Trees Snack
This is a super healthy treat the kids will love from Honey & Lime! Use a small plastic cup, clear or one with a jungle theme. Place grapes of any color in the base. Plant a “tree trunk” in the grapes by sticking in a sturdy carrot stick or celery stalk cut a few inches tall. Using a toothpick, place several thinly cut apple slices so that they resemble the leaves of a palm or tropical tree, and attach them to the celery or carrot truck with the toothpick. Super cute and a great way to get some healthy fruits and vegetables into your growing party guests.
Jungle Book Mowgli Cookie Cutter
These handmade cookie cutters are made from PLA biodegradable material and feature the face of Mowgli from The Jungle Book. This Etsy seller also offers cookie cutters in the shape of Baloo and Bagheera from The Jungle Book. Use a simple sugar cookie recipe and cut out these cute shapes and bake cookies for your party guests to enjoy. If you are feeling very ambitious, perhaps even have the kids help with making the cookie dough and rolling it and make the cookies at the party.
