Happy Saturday! We have a rainy and gloomy weekend in store for us here and I’m not too thrilled about it. I wanted to take the kids out this weekend and get some beautiful and colourful Fall pictures. The leaves are gorgeous right now! I’m going to have to postpone it till next weekend and I hope the leaves are still on the trees! It only takes a few rainy and windy days before they’re all on the ground. Here are some easy recent bento boxes my sweet little kiddos have enjoyed….
First up is this adorable lion bento box that Camden enjoyed for his afternoon nutrition break. It’s packed in our ‘icky bugs’ bento box. In the largest section I made 3 lion sandwiches using an adorable lion sandwich cutter I have. I filled the empty space with silicone leaf baran. A folded up napkin in this compartment helped the sandwiches stay in place. The other sections held a silicone muffin cup with sliced cucumbers and a cute lion pick, sliced pea pods and baby carrots, and a silicone muffin cup with sliced cheesestring and mini pretzel twists.
This fun blue lego bento box lunch was also for Cam’s afternoon nutrition break. I cut the crusts off a sandwich and it fit perfectly inside this lunch box. I placed a cute piece of hamster/guinea pig baran on top. I used the blue mini lego box inside to hold fruit chew snacks. He also had a rectangle silicone cup filled with sliced baby carrots and a cute hamster/guinea pig pick and some wheat thin crackers.
Kirsten enjoyed this fun and easy snack bento for her morning nutrition break at school. It’s packed in our orange lunchbots duo container. One section held melon balls – watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew all with a cute giraffe pick. The other side held some corn bran cereal – a current favourite of Kirsten’s!
Here’s another cute and easy morning nutrition break for Kirsten. This is packed in one of our new bento boxes. It’s just basically a four-section shallow tray with an easily removable lid. It’s great for their snack breaks. This tray held some watermelon slices, some pineapple slices with cute flower and bumblebee picks, a blueberry muffin bar and some butterfly pretzels.
And last, but not least – an easy yumbox for Camden’s afternoon nutrition break. The protein section held turkey lunch meat. The grains section held a stack of whole wheat crackers, the dairy section held some cubed marble cheese, the fruit section held some fresh blueberries and raspberries with an adorable lion pick, and the veggie section held some cucumber and baby carrot spears. I put some colourful chocolate-covered sunflower seeds in the middle for a little treat!
Here are the supplies I used to make these lunches:
* I believe Yumboxes are going to be in stock again this week, so be on the lookout for them!!*
