The boy is really missing his sister while she's at camp. He is not used to being the only kid and doesn't seem to enjoy it, especially with no one to play with.
We did go to taekwondo last night, in order to give him something to do, so I made him a special bento just because. I've seen octodogs on other bento blogs many times in the past and always thought I should try them. So I did. Ben was happy.
Ben has an octodog sitting on a bed of blue pasta salad with carrot starfish, peas, & a few celery (seaweed maybe?). He has watermelon chunks and a few pieces of strawberry oatmeal bars. It's all packed in his EasyLunchbox.
A close-up of the octodog! I added his facial features with Wilton Food Writer Edible Color Markers.
