More Fun with Christmas Bentos!

Of course, if I had a bit more food in the house, I'd probably be having a lot more fun designing Christmas items. We're finishing out what's currently in the fridge, which means a lot of duplicates and a little less creative. However, we're about done with that, so it's time to grocery shop for something more fun to bento with!



In this instance, Faith has lots of watermelon from our garden, a cream cheese & jelly sandwich topped with a cute little Christmas stocking (orange cheddar and Swiss cheese),half a boiled egg, some carrots and Christmas tree shaped cucumber!

More festivities to come, I'm sure. F&B already set up all of our assorted nativity collections as well as their mini trees. I just need my big tree up, as soon as we get a new pre-lit one (no one likes putting on the lights around here).

  1. Crazy question - cream cheese and jelly - that's what you put on their sandwiches, right? I've never thought about doing that, but I guess because I never had it growing up. I'm going to have to try it with my guys and see if they like it. Do your kids like one kind of jelly over another? I lean toward apple because it's clear and doesn't show up on clothes! :)

  4. I just found your blog and it's great. But I have to ask- what happens to the leftover part of the cheese or veggie you cut into a shape? Do you throw it out? Nibble as you make the bento? Have your own bento lunch full of odd leftover shapes?
