The Best Pet Ever - A Veggie Fish

We're having a sea creature obsession in our home right now.  Mermaids, jellyfish, whale sharks, the whole nine yards!  In fact, the other day I was told by Kayla that she would like a whale shark themed birthday party.  That sounds easy to piece together right??  Suddenly those Disney Princesses sounded oh-so-appealing!

I was cutting up some veggies for a playdate the other day when I had an inspired moment.  I don't know why but I was thinking of those big poached salmons that you see covered in cucumber slices and I came up with this little veggie fish.

Kayla can be picky when it comes to eating vegetables other than broccoli.  For whatever reason that has always been her thing, but other veggies can be a struggle.  This guy right here?  He was gobbled down in no time and I think you can tell how easy he was to put together.  Just layer up some quartered cucumber slices, carve up a bell pepper and add a baby carrot slice for an eye.  I swear, it works!
