Happy Sunday everyone! We just got home from swimming lessons and the kiddos are enjoying a snack. I’m sneeking on here to post some of our bento boxes from this past week. These are pretty much Winter/Christmas themed bento boxes, but I didn’t do a lot of pre-planning on them. I have some really fun ones planned for this coming week, which I’ll post next weekend! Here are some of our bento boxes from this past week:
Matching snowman bento boxes for both my kids. This lunch was actually not planned ahead of time (as most of my more themed lunches are), so I’m pretty pleased with the results. It was packed in their new lunch box – the trudeau fuel everest sandwich box. I really love these boxes – fun colours, easy to open and close and hold a perfect-sized meal for my kiddos. They had a circle-cut snowman sandwich with ham inside. I used carrot and black olives for the face and cute hat picks for the snowman’s hat. They also had silicone containers with baby carrots and snowflake cut cucumbers. I stuck some mini pretzel twists in the back!
This fun little bento was for the kid’s morning nutrition break and was packed in our steeltainer snack container. One section held 2 slices of homemade banana cranberry bread that I purchased at a bake sale. It was delicious and I wish I had the recipe. The other section held sliced strawberries with an adorable Santa pick.
Here’s another fun little steeltainer snack for the kiddo’s morning nutrition break. One section held sliced red and green apples. I brushed the apples with lemon juice to prevent browning. I also stuck a cute little Christmas tree pick in there to make it more festive. The other section held some red and green goldfish crackers – I took them out of the rainbow goldfish package.
Again, here are some matching bento boxes the kiddos had for their afternoon nutrition break packed in our EasyLunchboxes. The largest section held a snowflake-cut bologna sandwich made using our wilton comfort grip snowflake cutter. The other sections held silicone muffin cups with snowflake-cut cucumbers with a snowflake pick and sliced kiwi and strawberries with snowflake sprinkles.
And finally, a simple bento for their morning nutrition break. I don’t know how Christmasy it is, but I’m saying it is because it’s packed in a red and green bento box and I photographed it on Christmas paper, lol. The red section held sliced strawberries and banana, and the green tier held 2 silicone muffin cups with a sliced granola bar and a peeled clementine.
Here are the supplies I used to make these lunches:
