Happy Sunday everyone! I sure do love the holidays, but it makes for a VERY busy time of year. I can barely keep up!! If only there were more hours in the day. It doesn’t help that I’ve had a bad cold for the last 2 weeks that I can’t seem to shake. I think my body is trying to tell me that I need some rest. Anyway, here are some recent bento boxes that my kiddo’s have enjoyed for their school lunches…
First up is this super cute Hello Kitty lunch that Kirsten enjoyed for her afternoon nutrition break. It’s packed in her white lego lunch box. I packed a turkey sandwich (with the crusts cut off) and topped the sandwich with some cute baran – a silicone flower and hello kitty face. The mini lego box inside held some fruit snacks. The box also contained some baby carrots, sliced cucumbers and orange segments. Yummy!
Next up is this super cute morning nutrition break packed in our 4-square lock and lock box. The sections held a sliced cereal bar, a minigo yogurt, some fresh orange segments and fresh red grapes with a cute giraffe pick!
Here’s another morning nutrition break bento packed in our pear-shaped bento box. One section held a cereal bar and some mini pretzel twists. The other section held fresh raspberries and blueberries and a peeled and halved clementine orange. I added instant cuteness with an elephant fork pick.
Kirsten enjoyed this fun lunch for her afternoon nutrition break and it was packed in an EasyLunchbox. The main compartment held a yummy sandwich cut with our cutezcute sandwich cutter set. The other sections held a silicone muffin cup with mini pretzel twists and some flower cut cucumbers with baby carrot dots.
And lastly, another fun and easy bento for the kid’s morning nutrition break packed in our steeltainer snack container. The front section held a rectangle silicone muffin cup with a granola bar, and the back section held some fresh raspberries, blackberries and red grapes with a cute pick!
Here are the tools I used to make these lunches…
Happy Saturday night everyone! I don’t have any hot plans for this Saturday night, so I figured I would post some bento boxes instead! What cooler thing is there to do on a Saturday night, lol. Here are some bento boxes that my kiddos have enjoyed recently…
My sweet little Kirsten enjoyed this girly Barbie bento box for her afternoon nutrition break. It’s packed in one of our bright EasyLunchboxes. The main compartment had a whole sandwich and for decoration on top I added a mozzarella cheese high-heeled shoe and used crystal picks for some bling. The other sections held some sliced cheesestring underneath some butterfly crackers and a pink silicone muffin cup with a stack of cucumbers and a Barbie ring pick. She loved it!
I couldn’t make Kirsten a fun girly bento without making my little guy a bento based on his likes. His super cool star wars bento was packed in one of our original EasyLunchboxes and he enjoyed it for his afternoon nutrition break. The main section held a whole sandwich and I used various small bento cutters to make a white body out of mozzarella cheese. I added the white star wars character guy head (I have no idea what his name is!) on top and added a super cool light saber pick. The other sections held some sliced cheesestring underneath a stack of crackers, and a green silicone muffin cup filled with sliced cucumbers and a darth vader pick. He thought this was really cool!
This easy and fun little bento was for Kirsten’s morning nutrition break and packed in our apple bento box. The pull-out section held a strawberry cereal bar and some mini pretzel twists. The main compartment held a whole peeled clementine orange and some fresh raspberries and blueberries. I added a cute pink bunny pick for instant decoration!
This bright and colourful bento was for Kirsten’s afternoon nutrition break and packed in her pink yumbox. The protein section held some turkey breast lunch meat. The grains section held some cheddar penguin crackers. The veggie section held some sliced baby carrots and sliced celery, the fruit section held half a clementine orange and a large strawberry with a cute penguin pick, and the dairy section held sliced cheesestring. The middle circle held some chocolate covered sunflower seeds.
Finally, here’s a super easy bento that Camden enjoyed for his morning nutrition break packed in our 4-section tray. The sections held 2 slices of watermelon, a blueberry muffin bar, some alphabet pretzels and some blackberries with a cute elephant pick.
Here are the supplies I used to make these lunches……
In honour of yubo appearing on ABC’s Shark Tank this Friday night (November 22nd), I made a fun shark themed bento in my yubo lunchbox.
This yubo featured a circle-shaped sandwich with a triangle piece of bread on top to look like a shark. The eyes are 2 mozza cheese circles (using a small bento circle cutter) with black olives and the mouth is a slice of tomato with tiny mozza cheese triangle teeth (made with a small bento triangle cutter). I put some fancy boston lettuce at the bottom for some plants in the sea. The smaller containers held blue jello and blue and white goldfish crackers.
The kids thought this yubo was shark-tastic! Can’t wait to see the show!
I hope you’re all having a fabulous weekend! The weather is cold, dark and rainy here so we’ve been stuck indoors most of this weekend. Boo. We’re all coming down with colds too and we could really use some fresh outside air. Oh well. Here are some recent bento boxes that the kiddos have enjoyed for their school lunches…
This super easy lunch for Camden was packed in his green yumbox and he enjoyed it for his afternoon nutrition break. The protein section held sliced turkey lunchmeat, the grains section held goldfish crackers, the veggie section held sliced celery and baby carrots, the fruit section held half a clementine orange and a whole strawberry with an adorable seal pick, and the dairy section held sliced cheesestring. I added some chocolate covered sunflower seeds to the middle section for a colourful treat.
Cam enjoyed this tray of deliciousness for his morning nutrition break. This tray has 4 sections, and those sections held sliced naval oranges, a sliced cereal bar, sliced strawberries with a cute penguin pick and some goldfish crackers.
Here’s a fun bento that Kirsten enjoyed for her afternoon nutrition break packed in an Easylunchboxes container. The main section held a whole sandwich with a funny face. I used 2 slices of banana with black currants for the eyes, a slice of baby carrot for the nose and a lip pops pick for the lips. The other sections held sliced pea pods and baby carrots and a silicone heart muffin cup with fresh raspberries.
This pink yumbox was for Kirsten’s afternoon nutrition break. The protein section held ham roll-ups, the grains section held crackers, I put fruit in the veggie section – a peeled clementine orange with an upside down flower pick for the stem, the fruit section held sliced apples – and I put caramel dip for the apples in the round middle section. The dairy section held sliced cheesestring.
And finally, a cute froggy Easylunchbox for Camden’s afternoon nutrition break. The main section held a small napkin with a frog-shaped sandwich. I used my cutezcute frog sandwich cutter to make the sandwich. The other sections held a silicone muffin cup with pretzel twists and some flower-cut cucumbers and sliced baby carrots.
