World Animal Day - Elephant Bento

So, today is World Animal Day, and as usual in our house, we are celebrating the majestic elephant. However, due to circumstances beyond my control (aka my flight was delayed and I got in at 11pm instead of 8pm), I'm not using one of my very best ever elephant lunches.

But, thanks to the wonders of PicMonkey, I did collage some awesome elephant inspiration for you, and would suggest searching either "elephant" or "Peanut" in the handy-dandy search box on the sidebar.  As a toddler, Ben called all elephants Peanuts, so many of our lunches were so named.


Now, this lunch features some awesome new Peanut picks from a friend, so it's now my official World Animal Day Lunch.  Ben had cheese cubes, pretzels, a boiled egg (sliced), carrots and watermelon, accented with two really cool elephant fork picks, packed in a Lock & Lock 4-square lunchbox.


Now this?  Just some of *many* examples of elephant lunches we've had over the years.  Again, try the search and you'll find tons more.

If you're looking for more animal inspiration, some bento blogging friends and I have a great hop going on, each blog hosting a different animal!  Click on the box below to hop over to Julie at MommaSays to see her tiger bento, then follow the link to more!
