Now - some bento boxes! These were really easy to make and the kids just love them! Here are some of our recent bento boxes:
Here's a super cute lunch for Cam's afternoon nutrition break packed in our Trudeau Fuel Everest sandwich box. I used my cutezcute sandwich cutter to cut an animal face sandwich, and placed an adorable keroppi topper (character from Hello Kitty - only Cam doesn't know that so I thought he would like the froggy!). I had 2 silicone rectangle muffin cups - 1 filled with sliced baby carrots with a froggy pick and the other filled with fancy sliced cucmbers. Behind the sandwich a had a mini silicone cup filled with sliced cheesestring and some mini pretzel twists. I added some silicone leaf baran for decoration and to seperate the foods.
And here is Kirsten's afternoon nutrition break bento box that is similar to Cam's above. This is also packed in a Trudeau Fuel Everest sandwich box. Kirsten also had a sandwich cut into an animal face using the cutezcute cutter set, but she had a chococat topper - the black cat from Hello Kitty! I just love these hello kitty toppers - they are large, colourful and cute, washable and reusable - and did I mention cheap?! So fun. She also had 2 silicone muffin cups filled withs fancy cut cucumbers and sliced baby carrots. She had a mini flower silicone cup filled with sliced cheesestring and some mini pretzels. I used some colourful silicone flower baran to add decoration and seperate the foods.
This fun and easy bento snack was for Cam's morning nutrition break and packed in our favourite steeltainer snack container. One section held a silicone muffin cup with a nutrigrain blueberry cereal bar. The top section held a delicious fruit salad with kiwi, orange segments, peach and green grapes - I added a cute lion pick for decoration!
And here's Kirsten's morning nutrition break snack bento also packed in our steeltainer snack container. She also had a nutrigrain blueberry cereal bar. Her top section held a delicious fruit salad with sliced pluots, strawberries and kiwi. I put a cute bunny pick in for instant decoration and cuteness!
And finally, a cute and easy bento for Kirsten's afternoon nutrition break packed in her goodbyn bynto box. The top section held a sweet little birdie sandwich with an icing eye and orange sprinkle nose - I used cream cheese to help these details stay in place. The middle section held 2 flower silicone muffin cups - 1 with sliced baby carrots and 1 with sliced cucumbers with an adorable tree trunk pick (I adore this pick!). The bottom section held a peeled and halved clementine orange.
Here are the supplies I used to make these lunches:
