Dinner Rolls Bear and Pinwheel Bento

We have been counting down to end of the school year which will be early next month, and there are some projects and activities at Nikolai's school which makes life a little hectic this time of the year but all is good. With the count down and discussions about trips, my bento making enthusiasm seems to be fading.
This was the first time I sent dinner rolls for school lunch and Nikolai came home with an empty lunch box. I tried to cut the dinner rolls to create the bear ears but they didn't turn out as well as intended. Maybe the bread was too soft and the ears were not holding up or I should have used a tiny piece of uncooked spaghetti to hold it up. Well, I may recreate this sometime again in the near future. I hope then the result will be nicer.
The main section contained a couple of ham and cheese dinner rolls with nori eyes, I used my CuteZCute cuddle palz cutter for the nose and free hand cut the ears. His sides were organic baby carrots, ranch for dip in the yellow container and apple pieces. This lunch was packed in a Monbento Tresor.

Here is a simple pinwheels lunch with pretzel thins in the main compartment, cucumber slices and orange slices as sides. This lunch was also packed in a Monbento Tresor.

Here are the supplies or similar that I used to create and pack these lunches.
