brown rice in a square casserole dish with baked tofu around the border?

some kind of shepard's pie (wheat crust could esily resemble boards, I immagine)?

a casserole, dusted with ground fax seeds on top to look like sand, with little shell noodles inside to be buried sea shells?

As some of you know, I've been hot on the trail of a wooden, affordable sandbox for my beach-loving dd, and I've at last organized dh and his handy father from SoCal to build her one during the grandparents visit next week. I'm also kinda psyched by the whole fun with edible art idea...just read Super Baby Food and loved all her great ideas regarding broccoli forrests and animal pancakes and the like. So, why not a sandbox dinner to celebrate? Any vegetarian ideas, that are wholesome yet yummy enough to please the grandparents mainstream (yet, to their credit, adventurous) palettes. Sigh...I guess I'd like to impress them...But the main idea is F-U-N!!! thanks mamas!

DS had a construction party when he was 4 and we loved it! OPne thing you can do is to put munchies in a dumptruck on the table for serving, crumbled crackers make a nice mound of dirt for on top of a cake or puddings

How about graham cracker crumbs in a container that is filled with food treats buried in it ?
