|ham sandwiches, carrots w/ ranch (in the yellow container) grapes cut in half|
My attempts have been kind of sad but I have tried to do something fun when a holiday comes up. Basically when an idea works itself out and I don't have to think about it.
One of my favorite parts of bento is all the cute little extras that go in. Picks, condiment containers etc.
|not sure why this photo wouldn't turn|
Since I am cheap, I like to look for fun things in the dollar section, or at the dollar store. While I was perusing the .99 store for Thanksgiving items, I was excited to find some fun little things for Christmas.
I grabbed 4 of these little containers. Because their sandwiches were on rolls, they fit in really well.
In the toy section, of The Dollar Tree, they had a little tic tac toe type of game, which had gingerbread and Santa (looking) picks to use. So instead of using them for the game...they were used as picks.
I also found a star sandwich cutter at the Dollar Tree. My kiddos love these (:
So have you found any fun bento items lately? Or things that can be used in lunches? I would love to know (:
