Happy Birthday Dr.Seuss Bento Lunch- Yertle the Turtle, Bento #250

Today would be the 108th Birthday of Dr.Seuss. His philosophical children's book, Yertle the Turtle, inspired this lunch.  Unable to find a ready made turtle cutter, I made my own with my hubby's help from what was once a bell shape (used pliers to reshape).

  • Organic baby spinach as lily pad, ants on the log( celery stick,organic peanut butter,organic raisins)
  • Turtle shaped sandwiches, pepperoni as rocks
  • Checkerboard pattern grapes and cantaloupe. Below is pix of the cutter.
