this week in bento boxes

Happy Saturday night everyone! The kids and I are watching Frozen for the millionth time (LOVE it!) and I thought I’d take a few minutes to share some recent bento boxes the kiddos have enjoyed…..

bento2014-93

This first bright and colourful bento was for Kirsten’s afternoon nutrition break and packed in one of our bright EasyLunchboxes. The large compartment held half a turkey and lettuce sandwich with a cute pink raccoon piece of baran. I also stuck in a marble cheesestring. The smaller compartments held a mini pear and a mini cucumber with pea pods. I added the matching pink raccoon pick for instant cuteness!

Camden had a very similar lunch for his afternoon nutrition break also packed in one of our EasyLunchboxes. The largest compartment held half a turkey and lettuce sandwich with a cute panda piece of baran and a soccer ball pick. I also stuck in a marble cheesestring. The smaller compartments held sliced strawberries, a mini cucumber with a panda pick and baby carrots.

Lastly, here’s our lock and lock 4-square bento box that Camden had for his afternoon nutrition break. I removed 2 of the square containers and placed half a sandwich in the container. I put some fishy marble cheese cut-outs on top of the sandwich. The other 2 sections held fresh blueberries with a cute whale pick and some giant goldfish crackers.

this week in bento boxes

It’s March break and I am definitely looking forward to a 1 week holiday from lunch-making. Don’t get me wrong, I love making fun lunches for my kids, but sometimes we all need a little break. Life has been pretty hectic with all the kids extracurriculars after school that I’ve been having a hard time getting it all done. My kids usual lunches have been less on the cute side and more on the quick and easy side. Here are a few recent lunches that the kiddos have enjoyed….

This cute owl bento is packed in an EasyLunchbox and Kirsten enjoyed it for her afternoon nutrition break. The main compartment held a full turkey, and lettuce sandwich. I made an owl on top of the sandwich with cheese, carrot and blueberries. I used a variety of bento cutters I had to make the owl. The other sections held fresh red grapes and a silicone cup with flower-cut cucumbers with leaf picks.

The protein section held ham roll-ups, the grains section held small whole-wheat crackers, the veggie section held crinkle cut cucumbers and sliced baby carrots, the fruit section held sliced strawberries with a cute froggy pick, and the dairy section held yogurt. I put some chocolate-covered sunflower seeds in the centre for a treat.

Happy Sunday everyone!! I hope everyone is having an awesome weekend! Valentine’s day is over, and tomorrow is a holiday in Ontario – Family Day. Oh how I love three day weekends!! I wish every weekend was 3 days. It’s amazing how much more I can get done with just 1 little extra day. Here are some recent bento boxes the kiddos have enjoyed….

First up is this super cute Lego bento box that Camden enjoyed for his afternoon nutrition break. He had some fancy sliced cucumbers, a sandwich with the crusts cut off, a silicone muffin cup with sliced cheesestring and some mini pretzel twists. On top of the sandwich is my sorry attempt at cutting out a lego guy head out of cheese. It’s not perfect, but you get the point, lol. I drew on the face with food-safe markers. Cam LOVED this lunch!
