Valentine's Day Bento Lunches

Keeping it very simple this year, and enjoying some cool Walmart finds along the way!  I had to pick up a few other things at Walmart and found the perfect cutters for VDay lunches--tiered hearts for $1.47 and stamped hearts for $1.  We now own both, in case you had to ask.

Faith wanted cream cheese and jelly for lunch, so we designed her sandwich with the largest heart cutter, then stamped out a mini heart with the smallest.  We put cream cheese on the bottom, jam on the top and it was the perfect look with the red peeking through.  For sides, she opted for pineapple and a clementine

Ben wanted ham and cheese sandwiches, so we used the heart shaped stamped cutters to make his.  He also wanted a clementine for one side, but picked fresh blackberries and blueberries for the other.  I skewered those on plastic heart picks from the Dollar Tree, another great, inexpensive bento find!

Both kids also take a plethora of snacks, so had (not pictured) granola bars, cheese sticks, yogurt and applesauce.  Lunch is packed in our Easy Lunchboxes, using the red and pink lids for holiday flavor!
