Food: Dino-wiches with fossils and dino eggs

Create dino- and bone-shaped sandwiches using dinosaur- and bone-shaped cookie cutters. Fill some with cucumbers and tomatoes for herbivores and some with cheese and meat for carnivores. Serve with fossils (pretzels dipped in yogurt or white chocolate) and dino eggs (mix of jelly beans and candy-coated chocolate eggs).
