Obviously, Faith had her flower bento last night, but I couldn't not let Ben have something equally cute. A sandwich & some fruit was not going to cut it when his sister had everything shaped like flowers.
On the plus side, I did get to give them basically the same food, just presented a bit differently.
Ben's theme was "Stars". :o)
Ben had cream cheese and strawberry jam stars on Nature's Own Honey Wheat. I didn't make them two-toned, we were out of the whole wheat bread. Instead, they are topped with smaller marble cheese stars and even smaller carrot stars. He also had celery stuffed with cream cheese and topped with more carrot stars. For fruit, Ben had strawberry & cantaloupe chunk (not visible), green grapes (kind of visible) and a few strawberry & cantaloupe stars to make it pretty! I was a little tired of making inside out fruit shapes, considering I had cut the regular fruit into bite sized pieces & had to dig through the containers to find any piece big enough to shape. For his sweet, Ben also had one of the fresh berry muffins, topped with (you guessed it) another star, strawberry this time.
His is packed up in another of our EasyLunchboxes. I can fit two of them in one of the coolers and still have room for drinks, napkins and silverware.
And in case you're curious, Ben was quite happy with this!
