this week in bento boxes

I made some LOVEly lunches for the kiddos this week to get them excited for Valentine’s day! It’s so refreshing for me to have a theme to follow! Some weeks I am all out of inspiration and it’s such a relief when I really don’t have to think too much, lol! Here are some of our lunches from the past week:


This fun lunch was inspired by the classic Valentine’s treat – conversation hearts! It was packed in an EasyLunchbox. I used my wilton comfort grip heart cutter and cut a chicken sandwich into a heart. Then I used my mini alphabet cutters and cut ‘BE MINE’ out of fruit leather. The smaller compartments held a silicone heart muffin cup with sliced peaches, and sliced cucumbers with ‘LOVE’ alphabet picks.


This sweet little snack was for Kirsten’s morning nutrition break and packed in one of our new favourite (and adorable!) bento boxes. The top tier held some vanilla yogurt, with a pink yogurt heart (I coloured some vanilla yogurt with a dab of food colouring and used a squeeze bottle to squirt on a heart). The main section held a delicious fruit salad with heart-cut strawberries, red grapes, kiwi, and orange segments. I added a cute little heart pick.


This cute bento was for Kirsten’s afternoon nutrition break and packed in a trudeau fuel everest sandwich box. She had a ‘fairy sandwich’ cut with a large circle cutter and a mini heart cut-out. The sandwich was made with jam and some sprinkles in the heart cut-out. She had a mini-heart container filled with craisins, some pretzel twists with a heart pick, a twisty cheesestring (cut in half to fit) and a rectangle silicone muffin cup with fancy sliced cucumbers.


This was a sweet little bento for the afternoon nutrtion break. 1 tier held some sliced strawberries with a little pink piggie pick. The 2nd tier held some mini heart sealed sandwiches (made with an awesome heart sandwich sealer). The kids just adore these mini bite-sized sealed sandwiches – they are pretty fun to eat!


This fun bento was for Kirsten’s afternoon nutrition break packed in our colourful pink 2-tier bento. The top tier held some sliced cucumbers with a heart container filled with ranch dressing for dipping. The bottom tier held a circle-cut sandwich and I used our lip pops lip pick, icing eyes and cheesestring hair. She also had some mini pretzel twists.


This fun bento was for the kids afternoon nutrition break and packed in our EasyLunchboxes. The larger section held a heart-cut sandwich with icing eyes, heart sprinkle cheeks and a tomato smile. The other sections held a silicone heart muffin cup with pretzels, and some heart-cut cucumbers and carrots.


And finally, a fun little bento for the kids morning nutrition break packed in our lock and lock 4-square box. They had a silicone heart muffin cup filled with cherry jello, some pretzel twists, a sliced cereal bear and some sliced apples underneath a piece of green apple with a red apple heart cut-out.

Here are the supplies I used to make these lunches:
