Turtle Bento

This coming Monday is Labor Day here in the US and I am so ready for a mini vacation to celebrate my birthday and also our 14th wedding anniversary. It still feels like we just met and have so much in common. Often the same thought still comes to us at the same time.

Nikolai is quite interested in turtles lately, so I think he will really enjoy this turtle themed bento lunch and it was great fun to make. Have a great weekend everyone!


In this bento lunch:
  • Main compartment -Turtle shaped sandwich with shell of Colby and Gouda cheese and candy eyes above raisins
  • Lower left - Cereal bar with turtle pick
  • Upper left - Seedless green grapes in a turtle shaped silicone cup.
  • Center - Yogurt covered raisins.
  • Upper right - Cucumber slices.
  • This lunch is packed in a Planetbox rover.
Here are the supplies that I used to create and pack this lunch.

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?

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.
