David Mc Kee's Elmer the Elephant


John was first introduced to Elmer back in preschool. He's remained a favorite character and we have a small collection of Elmer books roaming around the house.

Elmer is a pumpkin cream cheese sandwich. After I colored the top slice I slapped it into a heated skillet to get the colors to set better. A GREAT little trick because otherwise John would finish lunchtime with a rainbow face :)

Sides are beef bites, raisins and fruit snacks.
