Octopus bento, #585

Hi there, I hope y'all are having a great summer! It's been around a month since school has been out and we have made several trips to the themed parks, space center, beaches, museums etc. There are more planned trips, but at this moment Nikolai's room is being remodeled to a big boy's room. I can't believe my boy is growing up so quickly.

I made this octopus themed bento for our trip to the beach the other day. I used string cheese for the octopus since we were out of hotdogs for the octodogs which Nikolai initially suggested. This lunch is packed in an Easylunchboxes container.

Octopus, octodog bento school lunches
In this bento lunch:
  • Octopus shaped sandwich with icing eyes and cheddar mouth.
  • Octocheese, I free hand-cut a string cheese in half and the tentacles, used a toothpick to make the face impressions. Goldfish crackers in a silicone cup.
  • Cucumber pieces.
  • Another octocheese above apple slices.
