We mentioned making your own fruit leather a little while back and we've recently come across a new twist on a classic lunch box staple. By making your own, the pieces can easily be turned into games, shapes and animals of all sorts. If this doesn't make you want to own a dehydrator, we're not sure what will!

Cindy over at Fix Me A Snack who recently shared her polka-dotted fruit leather with us pointed us in the direction of another snack in the same style. These homemade fruit leathers from Golubka are simply stunning as she's taken to creating food that can be played with.

She makes a few basic fruit and vegetable flavored leathers and then cuts them into shapes. They're cut into three different sizes of circles, triangles, long rectangles, curved teardrops, and straight teardrops. The combinations of how the pieces can be assembled is almost endless. Make animals, whole landscape scenes or even people.

It's a great way to keep little hands entertained while you might be getting the rest of lunch on the table or helping another sibling accomplish something. Check out more photos over at Golubka as they'll have you heading to the store for a dehydrator or pulling yours back out of storage!
