this week in bento boxes

Happy Sunday everyone! I’ve got a crazy busy day ahead of me so I’m getting this post up bright and early. I’m going to start making some Valentine’s bento’s this week for the kiddos, but in the meantime, here are some cute old regular bento boxes!


Here’s a fun bento for my hello kitty loving girl. I found this bento box on Ebay last year and it’s really cute. The bento box contained a circle cut chicken sandwich with a hello kitty face stamped on the bread. There were also some mini pretzel twists in the bottom section. The top section held some sliced cucumbers and sliced baby carrots with a cute hello kitty ring pick for decoration.


This cute little bento snack was for Cam’s morning nutrition break and packed in our favourite steeltainer snack container. One section held a rectangle silicone muffin cup with a sliced granola bar, and the other section held a peeled and halved clementine orange with 2 fresh strawberries and lion picks.


This fun little transportion bento was for Cam’s afternoon nutrition break and packed in a two-tier bento. One tier held some marble cheese cars cut using a mini car cutter, a row of mini whole-wheat crackers and a rectangle silicone muffin cup with turkey bologna spirals. The other tier held some baby tomatoes and baby carrots.


This sweet little princess bento was for my sweet little princesses’ afternoon nutrition break and packed in our trudeau fuel everest sandwich box. She had a princess sandwich cut with our princess lunch punch. I used cheese, icing eyes and a heart sprinkle for the details – cream cheese helps the details stay in place. There was also a silicone muffin cup with sliced baby carrots, a silicone muffin cup with sliced cucumbers and some mini pretzel twists with a princess crown pick.


And lastly, a cute little morning nutrition break bento for my sweet little buy packed in our steeltainer snack container. One section held a silicone muffin cup with a sliced granola bar. The other section held a fruit salad with sliced plums, and peeled and segmented clementine oranges with a cute elephant pick.

Here are the supplies I used to make these lunches:

    I have loved reading your fun food making ideas and tips along with your great craft ideas and the photos for some time now. Thank you for sharing great information!

    I was wondering how you cut the little carrot pieces into little rounds! Do you use those baby carrots and a knife and slice them or a tool?

    Thank you! Kristen :)

      Thanks Kristen! Yup, I just use baby carrots and a knife. I slice them into little circles and it takes no time at all. I hope that helps!

    Hi! Thank you for all your fun lunch ideas! My daughter is starting JK this September and we are both so excited for her lunches! I’m just working on getting all the supplies! I was wondering where you got the plastic rectangle food separator in these ones? Thanks!

      Thanks so much Amy! I’m assuming you might be Canadian (as am I) because you said your daughter is starting JK?? Anyway I find the silicone muffin cups at the grocery store – superstore or YIG. They are made by president’s choice. I hope that helps!
