Happy Crabby Bento

One of the fun things I like about bentos is sometimes you just see the ideas as you start making the lunch. In this case, I had the bagel prepped first and added the muffins to fit. All of a sudden, I saw the crab appear, so it just had to be made.  A bit of cheese cut-outs made the claws and the smile, a teeny grape cut in half for the eyes, and voila! A crab!

The kids had identical lunches today, but this one is Faith's.  She had cream cheese and cantaloupe preserves on a bagel thin, two homemade banana-chocolate chip mini muffins, a boiled egg and watermelon.  The aforementioned cheese cutouts and grape pieces finished out the design.   It's packed in our Easy Lunchboxes (also available on Amazon).
