Butterfly bento

I have been including carrots almost daily in Nikolai's lunchbox as I need to get him to start eating them again. Lately he has not been too keen on eating raw veggies, especially carrots. At home, most of the veggies I serve for dinner are cooked except for salad and I think that is the reason it is so difficult to get him to eat them raw .

Each time, when I use the Lunchbots Duo to pack lunches, I get so tempted to get their newer Lunchbots Duo which is slightly square at the sides, but there is really no good reason for me to do that. The one which we have is in perfect condition even after being used for many years.


In this bento lunch:
  • Circular sandwich with butterflies made from Colby and Mozzarella cheese (swapping the holes punched for decoration) and fruit leather for antennae.
  • Pretzels
  • Upper right are organic baby carrots with butterfly pick.
  • Lower right are pieces of pear with some grapes. Looks like a butterfly?  
  • This lunch is packed in a LunchBots Duo. Linked to BentoLunch.net
Here are the supplies that I used to create and pack this lunch.

Quick and Easy Roll-Ups bento

Happy Monday! We made it through the first week of school even though there were some days when we had to rush, and a few times I had to quickly put a lunch together. This bento was one of them, and it took me around 10 minutes to put together. I added a little cuteness by using a bear shaped cookie cutter for the cheese cut out.


In this bento lunch:
  • Sunbutter and jam roll ups sandwiches. I used a rolling pin to flatten the bread, spread the jam and sunbutter, roll and cut.
  • Organic baby carrots.
  • Babybel cheese with a bear cut out, above granola bar.
  • Watermelon and seedless green grapes with a watermelon cupcake pick.
  • Goldfish crackers.
  • This lunch is packed in an Easylunchboxes container.
Here are the supplies that I used to create and pack this lunch.

Dragon Bento and Bear Bento in Planetbox (2)

These two bentos were made a few months ago. The stamped bear bento was enjoyed by Nikolai when he had half day at school and the dragon bento was made by my hubby. I remember Nikolai, when planning a visit to a friend's house, asked for a dragon bento and dad obliged. My hubby told me that he was unable to find a dragon cookie cutter so he used a dinosaur cookie cutter for the dragon and added fruit leather wings. I have to give him credit for his creativity.:)

Here is the dragon bento made by my hubby.


In this bento lunch:
  • Dragon sandwich with a candy eye, free hand cut fruit leather wings and fire.
  • Organic baby carrots.
  • Seedless black grapes in a silicone cup with a flower pick.
  • This lunch is packed in a Planetbox Shuttle.
Here is the easy stamped bear sandwiches.


In this bento lunch:

  • Cherries and stamped cheese.
