Shark Bento and Matkins Review

The nice people over at Matkins kindly sent me one of their innovative Matkin which is a handy combination of a personal portable placemat with a pocket for a napkin or utensils. The idea of sending along a placemat is cool enough all by itself, but what they have accomplished with these Matkins goes well beyond that. With a fun collection to select from, the placemat side resistance to stains is amazing.

We like to travel and are out and about most weekends, so whether it is at a park, at a beach, or where ever you want a clean surface, these are great to have along.

I made this shark themed bento to complement the Shark Attack Matkin.

In this bento lunch:
  • Shark shaped sandwich with a candy eye above sugar snap peas and carrot coins.
  • Above the shark are Cheese crackers, pearl tomatoes and watermelon which was cut to shark shape.
  • Far right is a mozzarella string cheese.
  • Packed into our Laptop Lunches
  • Including the handy Matkin. Linked to BentoLunch.net

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

  3. So clever from you using the same theme for your bento as the matkins. Well done!
