This bento had some kiwi, pirate’s booty, and strawberries with a few sprinkles (per Sadie’s request) on top, then on bottom had half of a turkey and provolone bagel thin sandwich, some yogurt raisins, and a sliced baby carrot. The carrots didn’t get eaten (of course…that’s about standard right now), but everything else did! Even C’s bagel sandwich…I was kind of surprised about that! One of the main reasons I love doing lunches like this now is all the different ways you can present the same foods. Keeps ‘em on their toes.
We had some fun animal themed bentos this week too! Sadie chose a kitty cat for her lunch, so I used my cool new cutter to make her a jam sandwich…also added some sliced peaches, kiwis (with a kitty pick), cat shaped cheese and turkey pepperoni. She loved it!
Charlotte got a little piggy lunch! With a piggy sandwich, and basically all the same stuff as Sadie’s above, only with a piggy pick and piggy cheese. (have I said piggy enough yet?) My Grandma gave me this fun farm animal cookie cutter set awhile ago, and while they’re too small for cookies-they’re perfect for bentos!
This last one is from just the other day, but I wanted to share it before Halloween! I made a little turkey, cheese, and mustard candy corn sandwich (The girls just flipped the top layer over to eat), carrots, fall colored M&M’s, vampire goldfish (fangs drawn on with a food safe marker), and grapes with a little orange cat pick. The girls loved this-admittedly it’s not very spooky but that’s the kind of Halloween we like.
