Veggietales Bento for Miss Faith

Since I finally went grocery shopping the other day, it was high time to come up with something a little more creative. F&B have been playing a Veggietales game pretty frequently, and Bob & Larry seem to be nice and oval-ish to create. I had the kiddos bring me some pictures and we got to work.

VeggieTales Bento Veggie Tales EasyLunchboxes

Faith has a turkey & cheese sandwich on multigrain sandwich rounds, topped with VeggieTales decorations. Bob (he's a tomato for those of you who don't want VeggieTales) is made out of orange cheddar with white cheddar and cucumber accents, while Larry (a cucumber) is made out of lighter orange cheese with white cheddar and cucumber accents.

To keep with our VeggieTales theme, there are cucumber flowers, carrot sticks and some yummy veggie chips. To the right, there's cantaloupe, blueberries, blackberries, and a bit of my homemade blueberry-banana bread. It's packed in one of our Easy Lunchboxes, which in turn is packed in the matching cooler.

As for Mr. Ben? He's sitting at the kitchen table, drawing the VeggieTales characters and singing, rather loudly, "God is bigger than the boogeyman". He amuses me.

  2. So cute! And do they all stay together in the lunch box, or do they fall apart? I've often wondered that.

  10. @Karen, teeny tiny dots of plain cream cheese on the back hold it in place. And Faith is pretty careful anyhow.

    @Sarah, I have these: http://amzn.to/guLids

    @Mariah, a bento friend sent me the picks from a bigger Japanese store. The pack had flower stems, balloon stems, rings, little bones, and umbrella handles!

  14. That's terrific! I'm very impressed by your Bob and Larry renderings. My daughter is only two and her daycare provides lunches, so I'm not bento-ing yet, but I'm really excited to start. I'm very much enjoying your blog. Thank you for sharing your creations!

  16. How perfect! I'm so glad that you were featured on SITS today. I'm always looking for food ideas for my little gal. She's not picky but I can't keep feeding her mac and cheese and oranges. :)
