More Bento Lunches for Day Camp

The boy absolutely loved Avid4Adventure day camp last week.

Each day, it seemed, he had more fun than the last and he loved the plethora of outdoor activities, especially being able to focus on one skill each day.  I'm dying to see the rest of the pictures from camp, especially his rock climbing day.

He did take a daily lunch to camp and I kept adding more and more food each day, all of which kept getting eaten!

In this lunch, he chose a turkey and muenster sandwich on white bread rounds.  I didn't bother with decorating it, since I knew his lunch would be vertical in his bag.  With the sandwich, the purple containers hold gouda cheese sticks and a cut up apricot.  To the right, he has cut up strawberries and almond poppyseed mini muffins.

For snacks, I added granola bars, packaged crackers, and fruit snacks.  For drinks, I sent two large bottle of ice water and two small fully frozen water bottles that acted as ice packs and were still cool in the afternoon.  He refilled those several times too.

Because of the storage options, lunch is packed in a Goodbyn Hero box, utilizing Goodbyn mini containers.  I need the tight seal of those to make sure his food did not move about.

All New Day Camp Bento Lunches

After a week of teaching VBS and a week at Boy Scout camp, the boy is now home.  However, I received the opportunity to send him to a new adventure camp that had just expanded to Colorado Springs.

The camp is called Avid4Adventure and has locations here in Colorado and in California.  For the day camp, he gets to spend each day doing an adventure sport, so kayaking, mountain biking, canoeing, hiking, and rock climbing.  It's a very much Ben camp and, since it's all day, he needs to bring a lunch.

Kid-Made Breakfasts with Nellie's Free Range Eggs

The boy is on a cooking kick lately and I'm definitely enjoying it.

His current favorite?  Making omelets for breakfast for all of us! I'm loving it too, because who doesn't enjoy a hot omelet that you don't have to make yourself?

And Yet Another Egg Salad Bento

Apparently, my children are on an egg salad kick.  It seems like the last several lunch pictures I have are of egg salad lunches.

As a side note, they have eaten other things, besides egg salad!  It seems that egg salad were the only pretty enough lunches to take pictures of.

Kid Favorite Egg Salad Bento

We still sometimes default to kid favorite bentos, especially when I am in a hurry.

This one was from shortly after Easter, when I had a plethora of boiled eggs left, and both of my kids have always loved egg salad.  But the best way to serve it isn't sandwiches, it's with crackers or croissants and a spoon to make their own combos at school.  Sandwiches would be much too easy.

Panda Snack Bento

Pandas make us happy.  Snacky lunches make us happy.  And yummy leftovers with extra good cheeses make us happy.  We're combining all three into one lunchbox!
