Ben is a little pirate obsessed. He's actually been a little pirate obsessed for a few years now. We have Little People pirates. We have Imaginext pirates. We have Playmobil pirates. We have pirate costumes and pirate patterned clothes and pirate jammies. We even have a skull & crossbones cutter to make pirate bentos!
On What's for Lunch Wednesday, Kids Dream Work shared an awesome pirate bento with a pirate sandwich with nori decorations. Now we didn't have sandwiches and Ben isn't a nori fan, but I had to try out her general idea to see if I could make a cute pirate too!
taco muffin, topped with his very own pirate face! The face is the last bit of white cheddar, with an orange cheddar bandana. He has one sugar eye (it's a pirate, of course) and an eye patch made from a bit of cucumber. His mustache & chin are cucumber also.
To go with our not-so-scary pirate, Ben has carrots & celery, grapes, strawberries, blackberries and a couple of kebabs of blueberries. We're almost out of fruit, so thank goodness for freezer berries!
