Easter Chick Bento

I've been quite occupied with Nikolai's school activities, exams etc lately, and I am so happy that Spring break starts tomorrow! We will be going on a short vacation and I am thankful that my wonderful husband has everything planned. Usually we all discuss where we would like to go on vacation and then we always ended up going to wherever Nikolai or I suggest. This time, I told my hubby that I'm not going to suggest anywhere and he has to pick a place that he would like to visit.

Cute is cute, am I right? I mean, what really is the difference between a cute chick and a cute duck? Only after I made this, and already took the photo to post, did Nikolai notice that I included a duckling pick! I looked at the chick sandwich, then I looked at the pick; I don't know, close call I thought, wouldn't you agree?

The chick sandwich was shaped with a cutter and then I added Provolone cheese wings, a mild cheddar cheese cover for body, and a fruit leather bow tie. The little beak was sculpted from a piece or organic baby carrot, candy eyes and a small heart pick made it complete. This will be my last Easter themed bento for this year, packed in a leak-proof Bentgo lunchbox. We will be back next month. :)

Easter Bunny and Carrot Bento (2)

I'm already in vacation mode and it's only Tuesday! We will be on Spring break from this coming Friday till after Easter, yay! I'll be making one more Easter themed lunch for this week and you can view my previous Easter lunches here.

The first bento pictured here is a carrots and bunny lunch featuring two carrot shaped sandwiches which are topped with mild cheddar and with the tops made of sugar snap peas beside a Easter bunny container filled with Annie's Organic Cheddar Bunnies. Upper right are some apple bunnies/ bunny ears, and upper left is a piece of orange sweet pepper and some broccoli above sugar snap peas. I thought that the pepper and broccoli looked like a carrot. What do you think? This lunch was packed in an Easylunchboxes container.

This second picture is a Spring bunny bento. It includes four mini bunny stamped sandwiches, organic baby carrots topped with cucumber bunnies, organic apple sauce with bunny baran, and strawberries with grapes in a mini basket with a bunny pick. In the center are Annie's organic bunny fruit snacks. It was packed in our leakproof Yumbox Panino.

Butterfly and Quesadilla bento in Yumbox Panino (2)

This coming weekend Nikolai and others from his gifted students class will be participating in the local STEM Solar Car Challenge. Getting him to and from their meetings for design, construction, and testing made less time available for other things, and I've been super busy in the evenings. I can't wait to see them in action this coming Saturday!:)

I made a simple butterfly themed lunch shown in the upper photo, and a quesadilla lunch which he enjoyed on a different day. Both of these lunches were packed in his Yumbox Panino. 
Have a nice Friday and weekend, everyone!
