This year my teacher asked me to make a heart shaped lunch for my son's pre-school class. We cut sandwiches into hearts with a cookie cutter, we cut slices of cheese from a cheese block into a heart shapes, we cut strawberries in half to look like a heart and then I made these heart carrot slices. You take a carrot stick and using the potato peeler you shave or "whittle" one side of the length of the carrot into a point. Then you cut a "v" out of the round top length of the carrot. I used the potato peeler to "round out" out the "v" edges. Then you slice the carrot horizontally into hearts. Viola!
