Say hello to the newest addition to my cookie cutters collection! How ADORABLE are these? I am in full ramp up mode for Dylan’s school lunches when he starts in 1.5 weeks and I came across these on Amazon. I picked up the ‘Animal Friends’ set just to try them out and I will DEFINITELY be getting all of the others now! The set comes with 4 different faces (panda, pig, frog & cat) that you can either cut out or impress into your bread, cheese, meat, etc! The design possibilities are endless and the whole set was less than $10!

You can purchase these HERE on amazon.

I highly encourage you to check them out! They are getting 2 thumbs up from me.
