this week in bento boxes

Happy Sunday everyone! I had a couple cute crafts to post this week, but unfortunately I got terrible gastro and I just couldn’t pull myself together to post it. I’m going to try and sneak them in this week before Easter. In the meantime, here are some super cute Easter bento boxes that my kiddos have enjoyed this past week. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I love when I have a theme to work with. It makes it so much easier for me. Here they are:

This adorable little chickie lunch was packed for Cam’s afternoon nutrition break in our beloved classic colours EasyLunchboxes. The largest section held a circle-cut chicken sandwich surrounded by pretzel twists to look like a nest. I made the birdie by using a birdie cutter with cheese, a triangle carrot nose, and fruit leather birdie feet. I dabbed 2 dots of black gel food colouring on for the eyes. You can use cream cheese to help all the details stay in place. The other compartments held sliced oranges, and an orange babybel cheese with a birdie cut-out and crackers all in a silicone muffin cup.

This cute bento was for Kirsten’s afternoon nutrition break and was packed in our four-square lock and lock. I removed 2 of the squares and I was able to put in half a ham sandwich. I used some new bunny cutters I got to cut an adorable bunny shape out of mozza cheese and the face out of cheddar. I used a white flower sprinkle for the tail and a couple heart sprinkles for the ears. The other sections held some baby carrots with lettuce leaves and some yellow jello.

Here are a couple matching bento boxes that the kids had for their afternoon nutrition break. They were packed in our new brights EasyLunchboxes. They both held a circle-cut chicken sandwich turned into a bunny by using our bunny lip pops pick. I used blueberries for the eyes and sliced green apple for the ears. I dipped the apple slices in lemon juice to prevent browning and used cream cheese to hold the details in place. The smaller sections held a silicone muffin cup with bunny-shaped cucumbers cut-outs and some red grapes with a cute bunny pick.

This fun little bento was for Kirsten’s morning nutrition break and was packed in our Trudeau Fuel Everest sandwich box. I have an adorable silicone bunny mold and I mainly used it for decoration in this box. I tucked a granola bar underneath the bunny so the fruits wouldn’t get the granola bar wet. There were also sliced oranges, 3 strawberries with cute bunny picks and some blackberries.

This was a cute bento box that Kirsten actually had at home last weekend – Cam had gastro last weekend and didn’t feel much like eating. The top section held silicone muffin cups filled with sliced baby carrots and sliced pluots with a cute bunny pick. The middle section held cracker and cheese chicks with carrot noses and feet and black gel food colouring eyes. The bottom section held adorable mini easter eggs, all filled with a different surprise – some had fruit, some had crackers and 1 had a special chocolate treat!

And lastly, here’s a sweet morning nutrition break for Kirsten in our Lunchbots Pico container. One section held a silicone muffin cup with sliced granola bar and some pretzel twists. The other section held sliced orange segments with a cute bunny pick.

Here are the supplies I used to make these lunches:
