The Wind and Sea Obey Him
Symbols to use: boat, mast, sail, net, fish, barbecue, leviathan
We laid out our casual tablecloth and the boys added some blue "water" paper napkins and then searched the house for some sea themed toys. I laid the leviathan in the middle of the toys.
I completely forgot about this! I had some Ocean Spray cranberry juice chilling in the fridge for the occasion. I guess we will have to enjoy it with breakfast this week!
The leviathan appetizer: raw peppers with a cashew sour cream ranch dip (and some other cut-up veggies off to the side).
Fish-shaped cheese to put on the burgers (the barbecue).
Here is our net (some saran wrap over half of the fish).
And our boat (with sail and mast). The kids thought this was fun to play with, but my husband and I enjoyed eating it the most. I used Daiya cheese on mine and skipped the sour cream, but my husband indulged in the heart-ahem-healthy side. The mast and sail was a toothpick with a triangle paper flag glued on. Easy peasy - and helped the kids at least try the potato skins.
No picture for this one. Again, mental lapse. Initially I meant to make up some blue jello with Swedish fish and a cool-whip "net" but time slipped away, and instead the kids had some Superman (i.e., multi-colored) ice-cream, which actually worked out. As Skipper said, "I'm eating the land now." (The ice-cream was half-melted so the sea was the liquidy part around the firmer "island." Pretty clever!)

"How varied are your works, Lord! In wisdom you have made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. There is the sea, great and wide! It teems with countless beings, living things both large and small. There ships ply their course and Leviathan, whom you formed to play with." ~~Psalm 104:24-26
