Turkey Bento

I decided to make a turkey bento earlier this year since I usually tried to come up with one at the last minute in past years. Nikolai was born on Thanksgiving Day almost 9 years ago so his birthday always falls around the Thanksgiving holiday. Naturally we are always so busy with parties preparation at that time, the making of a festive turkey bento is left at the back burner.

I was unable to find my turkey shaped cookie cutter but remembered an idea I saw on pinterest using a hand shaped cookie cutter for a turkey! Here is what I came up with.

Thanksgiving Turkey bento school lunches
 In this bento lunch:
  • Turkey shaped sandwich (cut using a hand shaped cookie cutter), sweet peppers for feather (free hand cut), icing eyes, sweet red pepper wattle, yellow sweet pepper beak and cheddar feet.
  • Bugles.
  • Cucumber slices with a turkey cupcake pick.
  • Seedless red grapes and strawberries. This lunch is packed in an Easylunchboxes container. Linked to Bento Blog Network.

Here are the supplies or similar that I used to make and pack this lunch.
