this week in bento boxes

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope the time change went smoothly for everyone. All it meant for me is that my early rising son woke up at 4:43am this morning. Ouch. It’s going to be a long day until bedtime. Hopefully tomorrow he’ll sleep in a little longer. Here are some recent bento boxes the kiddos have had in their lunch:


This week my hello kitty loving girl begged me for another hello kitty bento box. I happily obliged. I bought this bento box last year off Ebay and I can’t believe I didn’t use it. I’ve used it a couple times this year and I’m really loving it. The upper divided section held flower cut cucumbers and carrots. I used my larger stainless steel cutters to cut the cucumber and a small plastic flower cutter to cut the carrots. The lower larger section held a kitty sandwich made with my cutezcute cutter set. I used the kitty cutter and stamped a face onto the sandwich. I finished the kitty sandwich with an adorable bow pick. The lower section also held baby tomatoes with a bow pick and some mini pretzels.


This little bento was for the kid’s morning nutrition break and is packed in our favourite steeltainer snack container. One section held a granola bar and some mini pretzels. The other section held a fruit salad with raspberries, red grapes and kiwis and an adorable hippo pick.


This lego bento box was for Camden’s afternoon nutrition break. We just love our new lego lunch boxes and smaller lego inner containers. They are so much fun. His lego bento box held a panda bear sandwich made with our cutezcute cutter set. I used the panda cutter to stamp a face on his sandwich. The bento also had a silicone muffin cup with sliced cucumbers, alternating slices, and some sliced carrots. It had a smaller square lego container filled with ranch dressing for dipping and another blue lego container filled with mini pretzels. Cam just loved it.


This cute little bento was for the kid’s morning nutrition break. Again, it was packed in our steeltainer which we love. One section held a silicone muffin cup with a sliced cereal bar. The other section held sliced pear and kiwi with an adorable elephant pick.


And lastly, an adorable bento for Cam’s afternoon nutrition break. It was packed in one of our colourful two-tier bento boxes that we love. The top tier held some whole wheat crackers and some turkey bologna roll-ups held together with cute animal picks. The bottom tier held a silicone muffin cup with a babybel cheese. I used a small star cutter to cut a star out of the wax. The bottom tier also held some sliced cucumbers and carrots.

These are the supplies I used to make these lunches:

    I agree with Lisa-Marie, super cute! I’m always amazed at your creativity in organizing these. I’m getting excited to give them a go myself next fall. Thanks for all the amazing inspiration. =)
