baby owl bento box

Here’s another adorable bento box from CuteZcute. I shared a baby penguin bento box with you last month, and now I’m showcasing the sweet baby owl. It’s an awesome 2 compartment bento box, holding a of 440 ml. (8 FL OZ). The top tier has a fitted lid and is 240 ml and the bottom tier is 200 ml. The iuncluded elastic strap helps secure the bento box pieces together. It is not leakproof. It is just so cute!

And here’s a fun baby owl bento lunch that I made for this baby owl bento box:

The top tier held a circle cut sandwich that I turned into an owl using 2 slices of baby carrot for the feet, 1 cucumber sliced in half for the wings, 2 mozza cheese circles and olives for the eyes, and sprinkles for the ears and nose. The bottom tier held fresh strawberries, and flower-cut cucumbers with baby carrot centers.

baby penguin bento box

I got an adorable new bento box that has an adorable baby penguin on it and I thought I would make a cute baby penguin lunch to go inside of it! The new bento box is made by CuteZCute and it’s really great!

P.S. – don’t mind the reflection in the top of the bento box, lol. You can see the snowflake ceiling that the kids elf on the shelf did for them and you can also see a disaster area of toys on my living room floor! Oh, and there’s me taking the picture!!

The CuteZCute baby penguin lunch box features 2 compartments and the top compartment can also be used as a bowl! The individual compartments keep different types of food separated. An elastic band is included to keep the compartments together during transport. It’s a really neat design and I think I’ll enjoy packing lunches in it! My kids love the cute design too! Here’s what I came up with…..

The bottom compartment held a circle-cut sandwich with an adorable baby penguin on top. I cut the baby penguin out of a piece of crust using a small penguin cutter I have. I used small circle cutters for the belly and the eyes, orange sprinkles for the nose and feet, and black food marker for the dots of the eyes. The top compartment held a silicone muffin cup with penguin cheddar crackers, snowflake-cut cucumbers and baby tomatoes with an adorable penguin pick!

The cutezcute bento box also comes in two other designs – baby owl (which I will be showing you guys at a later date), and baby panda. They are so cute, I want them all!

this week in bento boxes

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…

bento2013-69

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!

this week in bento boxes

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…

bento2013-54

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.

Happy Sunday everyone! So sorry about the lack of posts lately, but I’m really working hard on getting my new site up and running and it seems to take quite a bit of my time. I’m really going to try hard and step up my game, lol. Here are some recent bento boxes that my kiddos have enjoyed:

One section held a panda bear sandwich made with the CuteZCute cutter set. The other section held fresh strawberries, sliced cucumbers and carrots (Kirsten’s were cut into flowers). I added bear picks to Cam’s lunch and panda bear picks to Kirsten’s.

I added some sliced cucumbers to finish it off.
