Here are some more bento’s from the archives. I’ll start posting new ones with some new bento boxes next week. I’m just trying to wean down my archive collection a little bit because I don’t want to miss any of the really cute ones. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
This outerspace bento was for Kirsten’s morning nutrition break. She had a container of outerspace goldfish crackers, a container of yogurt with a fruit leather spaceship with sprinkles and a container of blueberries with more outerspace goldfish. Even my little Cam thought this lunch was really cool. I wrapped the yogurt container in tin foil before packing it in her lunch bag.
Here is another morning bento. She had 2 baby bananas (I started the peel before I packed them in her lunch bag so she could easily peel them herself). Even though they have someone to help them with their lunches, Kirsten does not like to ask for help. If she can’t get to something herself, it’s likely to come home uneaten because she didn’t ask for help. It’s kind of frustrating. Anyway, she also had some green grapes with a frog pick and a cereal bar.
This was a bento for Kirsten’s afternoon nutrition break. She had half a turkey and cheese sandwich with an adorable little bumblebee on top. I cut the bumblebee out of cheese using a sandwich cutter I have. I used my food marker to draw on lines (rather bad lines I must say!), used an icing eye and some white tortilla wings. She also had a flower silicone muffin cup filled with clementine orange segments and another filled with yogurt. I wrapped the yogurt in tinfoil before packing this lunch in her bag.
This colourful little bento was for Kirsten’s morning nutrition break. She had some fruit salad with a cute little elephant pick, a cereal bar, and some pretzel sticks with cute little cheese birdies.
And lastly, another morning bento. She had some plain cheerios, a container of raspberries and blueberries with a frog pick and a container of yogurt with a fruit leather frog (using a bear cutter) and icing eyes. I wrapped the yogurt in tinfoil before packing it in her lunch bag.
On another note, it seems that my beloved lock and lock lunch box with the 4 separate trays is becoming very difficult to find. I have even heard a rumour that it is being discontinued. I certainly hope not because it’s a great little lunch box. They may have replaced it with this container:
It is the exact same size as the one I currently use, but they changed the word trays to divider. Whereas mine have 4 removable trays, these ones have a divider. I’m not sure if that means you can remove it, or whether it’s a permanent divider in the lunch box. If it’s permanent, I won’t like it quite as much as the older model because I often remove 2 of the trays to put half a sandwich in, or larger portions of a certain food. It is an option though. If anyone does in fact buy this can you PLEASE let me know what the inside of the box is like. Are the dividers fixed or can you remove them? Thanks!!
